Penn State University announced its Constitution Day celebration to take place on the 232nd birthday greatest document ever written in history. From Penn State News:

The First and Second amendments to the U.S. Constitution are in the news a lot these days as debates about free speech and gun ownership permeate the news cycle. The Constitution, however, contains much more than those two amendments, and understanding the Constitution is essential to being a good citizen.

The Department of Communication Arts and Sciences (CAS) and the Intercollege Minor in Civic and Community Engagement (CIVCM) will lead a Constitution Day celebration from 1-4 p.m. on Tuesday, Sept. 17, in Heritage Hall in the HUB-Robeson Center on Penn State’s University Park campus. The event will feature student and faculty presentations to mark the Constitution’s 232nd birthday.

Starting at 1 p.m., students from Foundations of Civic and Community Engagement (CAS 222/CIVCM 211) will present posters focusing on different parts of the Constitution and how they relate to contemporary issues. Both sections of that course are taught this semester by CAS Teaching Professor Travis Brisini, assistant director of the CIVCM minor.

The event will also have a panel of teachers to discuss “issues related to the Constitution.”
