September 17, 2014Join Us in Celebration of Constitution Day!

Foothill College Financial Aid Outreach invites you to join us in a celebration of Constitution Day commemorating the birthday of our government on September 17, 1776. Please visit the Student Services Building (8100) to view a replica of the U.S. Constitution.  The Financial Aid Office will also have available to distribute pocket guides to the U.S. Constitution; please stop by our office (Room 8100) during the week of September 15th to pick up your free copy.

 



One of the main purposes of Constitution Day is to ensure that students in our country gain an increased knowledge and appreciation for this valuable and important document of freedom.  We invite you to test your knowledge of the constitution by taking the “Constitution IQ tests” at www.constitutionfacts.com.  You may also wish to visit an interactive exhibit, “Centuries of Citizenship: A Constitutional Timeline” at www.constitutioncenter.org/timeline.



 



FASCINATING FACTS ABOUT THE U.S. CONSITUTION (from www.constitutionfacts.com)



 




  • The U.S. Constitution has 4,400 words. It is the oldest and shortest written Constitution of any major government in the world.



 




  • Because of his poor health, Benjamin Franklin needed help to sign the Constitution. As he did so, tears streamed down his face.



 




  • Of the typographical errors in the Constitution, the misspelling of the word “Pensylvania” above the signers’ names is probably the most glaring.



 




  • Thomas Jefferson did not sign the Constitution. He was in France during the Convention, where he served as the U.S. minister. John Adams was serving as the U.S. minister to Great Britain during the Constitutional Convention and did not attend either.



 




  • The Constitution was “penned” by Jacob Shallus, a Pennsylvania General Assembly clerk, for a fee of $30 ($325.29 today). It was stored in various cities until 1952, when it was placed in the National Archives Building in Washington, D.C. During the daytime, pages one and four of the document are displayed in a bullet-proof case. The case contains helium and water vapor to preserve the paper’s quality. At night, the pages are lowered into a vault, behind five-ton doors that are designed to withstand a nuclear explosion. The entire Constitution is displayed only one day a year—September 17, the anniversary of the day the framers signed the document.
