  • Mississippi State University Chapter Report

    Unfortunately, our chapter is afraid of cameras.  So the only pictures for this semester are of Constitution Day/World’s Smallest Political Quiz.  On September 17, MSU YAL held constitution day along with the worlds smallest political quiz.  We passed out around 100 Constitutions to those who seemed interested.  We recruited many people to take the quiz …

  • UW-Madison Constitution Day

    YAL UW-Madison had a successful Constitution Day earlier this month.  The group passed out over 100 Constitutions and collected nearly 500 signatures of students who wanted to see Ron Paul come to Madison.  We tabled on Library Mall, a hot spot on campus that incidentally President Obama spoke at this past Tuesday, and engaged in …

  • ECU Constitution Day Event

    The East Carolina University YAL enthusiastically celebrated this year’s Constitution Day.  The group exchanged cookies, cup-cakes in return for trivia knowledge of the constitution.  Once a student gave a piece of information about the constitution (name a right, answer a question about the articles, etc) they received a baked item and a Constitution.  Some students …

  • YAL @ IU Constitution Day Video

    Last year’s “Unconstitutional Gorilla” was finally persuaded by YAL @ IU that the U.S. Constitution is a good thing.  He consequently adopted limited government as part of his platform, along with the consumption of terrestrial herbaceous vegetation and scaring people. This year, instead of trying to steal IU students’ Constitutions, he decided to be a …

  • University of South Florida’s Constitution Day

    The University of South Florida chapter held our Constitution Day event this past Tuesday. We passed out Constitutions with fliers detailing our next meeting time and started conversations with students by asking them which amendment to the Constitution they felt was most important and why. Most people said “oh, I can’t remember all of them,” …

  • SCSU Celebrates Constitution Day

    The night before Constitution Day, YAL at Saint Cloud State University held a flier blitz and a  social so members could get to know one another better. It was extremely productive and, more importantly, a lot of fun. I don’t have the file for the fliers, but our newly appointed graphic designer, Alyssa Hertig, made an awesome …

  • YAL Members Visit Cato For Constitution Day!

    On Thursday, I traveled from Somerset, Pennsylvania to Washington, D.C. with a fellow YAL-er from our high school chapter to visit the Cato Institute for their Constitution Day Symposium and for their Supreme Court Review. The trip, though long, was well worth it. Great lawyers, academics, and others spoke on everything from the incorporation of the …

  • YAL @ IU Joins Forces with Wild Gorilla for Constitution Day

    Constitution Day holds a special place in the hearts of limited government advocates, but little did we know that some other great apes share this passion as well. About 20 minutes into our Constitution Day event, a thick, black-coated gorilla came bike pedaling down the road, something completely unheard of, stopped at our table, hopped …

  • Taste the Liberty: Celebrating Constitution Day at Duquesne University

    DUYAL’s Constitution Day celebration was a success! We got a prime table location in our Student Union and had a nice set up. Thank you, YAL National, for all the great materials — we aren’t sure who is doing it, but YARs keep turning up in the stacks of magazines around campus. To entice students …
