Onondaga Community College joined the entire SUNY system in a statewide celebration of Constitution Day Monday, September 17. During College Hour there were tables set up in Mawhinney Hall and the Gordon Student Center where students received pocket-sized copies of the Constitution, answered Constitution-related questions for prizes and registered to vote.

Constitution Day is an American federal observance that recognizes the adoption of the United States Constitution. OCC’s efforts were organized by Susan Tormey, Associate Vice President of Government Relations, Chris Thuot, Ph.D., Associate Professor of Political Science, and Jackie Barstow, Coordinator of OCC’s chapter of international honor society Phi Theta Kappa.
