September 09, 2019 : Ohio University Lancaster Celebrates Constitution Day


Ohio University Lancaster celebrates Constitution Day on Monday, September 17. Constitution Day celebrates the forming and signing of the United States Constitution, which took place on September 17, 1787. It is a good day to pause and honor the tremendous commitment our Founding Fathers had in creating, ratifying and signing a document that establishes the supreme law of the United States. The opening lines of our Constitution are as important today as the day they were written: 

We the People of the United States, in Order to form a more perfect Union, establish Justice, insure domestic Tranquility, provide for the common defense, promote the general Welfare, and secure the Blessings of Liberty to ourselves and our Posterity, do ordain and establish this Constitution for the United States of America.”
