Constitution and Citizenship Day

The United States Constitution was signed on September 17, 1787, by 39 of the 55 delegates of the Constitutional Convention in Philadelphia’s Independence Hall. For more than 50 years, Americans from across the nation have set aside time to commemorate the importance of this event.

Each year Rio Salado College recognizes and celebrates this day with activities and events promoting a better understanding of the Constitution.
