Celebrating Constitution Day • September 17
Constitution Day commemorates the formation and signing of the U.S. Constitution by thirty-nine brave men on September 17, 1787, recognizing all who are born in the U.S. or by naturalization, have become citizens.
We encourage all Americans to observe this important day in our nation's history.
In order to comply with the federal regulation requiring the development of educational programming to celebrate Constitution Day on September 17 of each year, the Foothill College Financial Aid Office has provided you with Constitutional information and links below.
