Chatfield College at Findlay Market Commemorates Constitution Day

October 4th, 2013 Chatfield College at Findlay Market Commemorates Constitution Day

Chatfield College celebrated Constitution Day in September with an interactive ceremony for students and staff commemorating the formation and signing of the U.S. Constitution on September 17, 1787.

The U.S. Constitution established America's national government and fundamental laws, and guaranteed certain rights for its citizens; it recognizes all U.S. citizens, those born in the United States or naturalized as citizens. George Washington, Benjamin Franklin, and Alexander Hamilton are three of the most familiar signatures on the Constitution. Thirty-nine of our nation’s founding fathers signed the historic document.

The holiday was established in 1956 to encourage Americans to learn more about the Constitution. Prior to changes made by Congress in 2004, Constitution Day was named Citizenship Day. Chatfield College students at the Findlay Market campus took a short respite from classes to commemorate and reflect on Constitution Day as a school community.

Chatfield College is a two year, Catholic, liberal arts college with campuses in Over-the-Rhine and Brown County.  The College recently announced the purchase of a property at 1544 Central Parkway which will be adaptively reused as a permanent downtown campus for its growing student population.
