American Sentinel University Celebrates the Constitution and How It’s Enriched Our Lives
AURORA, Colo. – September 11, 2017 – American Sentinel University will join the nation in celebrating Constitution Day on Sept. 17 to commemorate the day 39 brave men changed the course of history by signing the U.S. Constitution 230 years ago. American Sentinel will recognize this significant event with a week long celebration that includes a Constitution Week web page and contest for students and faculty.
The university will host a Constitution Week Competition. Students and faculty members can participate through the online classroom. All participants will be entered to win gift certificates from American Sentinel’s online store.
American Sentinel will also host an internal celebration for faculty and staff to learn more about Constitution Day and the document it celebrates. They will share what the Constitution means to them, what their favorite amendment is and how the Constitutional freedoms they enjoy have enabled them to be civically engaged in their daily lives.
American Sentinel will engage its community of academic scholars and students throughout the week, discussing the importance of America’s Constitution and examining how Constitutional freedoms reflect the values they cherish and the ideals they strive for as a society.
“Constitution Week is the perfect time to revisit our country’s greatest document and be reminded that America was founded on shared principles and liberties that every American enjoys and holds dear,” says Mary Adams, President and Chief Academic Officer at American Sentinel University. “We encourage our students, alumni, faculty and staff to come together and reflect on our shared history, freedom and heritage and celebrate our wonderful country by celebrating Constitution Day.”
Constitution Day (formerly Citizenship Day) commemorates the formation and signing of the U.S. Constitution on Sept. 17, 1787. It is an American federal observance that recognizes the adoption of the United States Constitution and those who have become U.S. citizens.
