Students, staff, faculty and the community are invited to commemorate Constitution Day--the day when the U.S. Constitution was signed--by publicly reading the U.S. Constitution.  Starting with the Preamble, read by President Driscoll, 100 people will each read a passage through until the last amendment -- the 27th Amendment -- is read.    Participants will receive a pocket Constitution, a "We the People at IUP" t-shirt, and a red, white and blue cookie.
