Happy Constitution Day

Happy Constitution Day

In September 1787, our nation’s founders signed the most influential document in American history, the U.S. Constitution. At Peirce College, we are lucky to be surrounded by so much history right here in Philadelphia where the Constitution was signed. On Sunday, in celebration of Constitution Day, we honor those who developed this document and ideology and celebrate where it has led us to today.

In honor of Constitution Day, the National Constitution Center is opening their newest gallery, The First Amendment, to offer a fresh perspective on the history of the First Amendment and how it impacts us today. The Center also has a series of programs and events highlighting the history and meaning of the amendment. 

The Center’s annual Constitution Day celebration takes place on Monday, September 18, from 9:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. with FREE admission courtesy of PECO. (Admission to the museum is also FREE on Sunday, September 17, in honor of the 236th anniversary of the signing of the Constitution.) Click here for more information. The Constitution Center in Philadelphia is located at 525 Arch Street.
