U.S. Constitution Day

September 17th

The Constitution…must be maintained,
for it is the only safeguard of our liberties.”
- Abraham Lincoln

Each September, MSOE is proud to celebrate the U.S. Constitution with a variety of events that we hope will instill in our campus population a true appreciation and respect for our Constitution. We look forward to having you at some of our scheduled events for this year.

Gain additional insight and knowledge on the Constitution, our founding fathers, the Presidents and Vice-Presidents, the Supreme Court, U.S. Senate and House of Representatives. In addition, you will find links to some great volunteer opportunities (both local and national) that will further assist you in developing your citizenship skills.
