ISU Celebrates 226th Anniversary of the U.S. Constitution

The United States Constitution was signed on September 17, 1787. In honor of the 226th anniversary, over 70 ISU students, faculty and staff took turns reading the historical document out loud. Constitution Day, which is also known as Citizenship Day, became a federally recognized holiday in 2005.
The Indiana State University campus came together for a patriotic celebration Tuesday afternoon -- it's Constitution Day.

The United States Constitution was signed on September 17, 1787.

In honor of the 226th anniversary, over 70 students, faculty and staff took turns reading the historical document out loud.

The school's American Democracy Project also these created giant pages for people to write what they think is the most important part of the Constitution.

Those involved say looking back at our history can help us move forward.

"I feel like as Americans we all know that about the Constitution just from elementary school and middle school high school... but we don't really know the Constitution. I really feel like that's a serious problem. A lot of people will reference the Constitution and the reason why they can or cannot do something, but they don't really understand it. And they don't really understand how elaborate of a document it really is," said ISU junior Julian Winborn.

Constitution Day, which is also known as Citizenship Day, became a federally recognized holiday in 2005.
