About Constitution Day
On September 17, 1787, delegates to the Philadelphia Convention signed the final draft of the Constitution and the ratification process began.  In 2004, Congress declared September 17 to be Constitution Day.  Every year since then, Columbia College Chicago has joined the celebration.
