Constitution Day

Constitution Day

 

Constitution Day is a time to commemorate the September 17, 1787 signing of the United States Constitution. Constitution Day is observed each year on September 17th. The purpose of this day is to encourage the ECSU community to continue learning and appreciating this living document which, despite its birth over 200 years ago, still plays an integral role in our everyday lives. Constitution Day provides an opportunity to reflect on our government, our liberties, and our obligations as citizens in this democracy.

A scan of the U.S. Constitution may be found on the National Archives website.

Elizabeth City State University encourages all students to participate in local, state, and national elections. As part of our responsibility to promote good citizenship, as well as good scholarship, the University urges all students to register to vote. Students who are not registered to vote are reminded that to vote in the State of North Carolina they must register at least 25 days prior to an election. Let your voice be heard. Register to vote.
