Every April, Missouri S&T students celebrate the spirit of giving by digging deeper to make a difference. During Philanthropy Month, you’ll find them supporting each other and the many causes close to their hearts. Here’s a preview of why this coming April is a special month at S&T:
- Every Tuesday and Thursday all month, members of Students Today, Alumni Tomorrow and Blue Key Honor Society will promote Philanthropy Month with games and giveaways in the Havener Center and outside the library.
- On Whiteboard Wednesdays throughout April, students with whiteboards will mobilize across campus, asking students, faculty and staff to share what they love about S&T. You’ll find their answers on our Philanthropy Month Facebook page.
- All month long, students will raise money for the Student Emergency Fund, a resource that helps Miners who are struggling to manage life’s unexpected setbacks. OGS members are invited to support the fundraising campaign (which goes live on April 1 at crowdfunding campaign) or visit giving.mst.edu to make a difference.
- Philanthropy Month culminates on Friday, April 27, on the Puck with Philanthropalooza, when more than 20 student organizations with a service mission will showcase what they do and why they do it.
Mark your calendar and make plans to join OGS members for two upcoming events: an evening of food and fellowship on campus on Saturday, Oct. 13, during Homecoming—and our next OGS Weekend, scheduled for June 7-8, 2019, in a location to be announced soon.

In 1977, a small group of alumni stepped forward to support Missouri S&T as founders of the Order of the Golden Shillelagh. The members of OGS have been picking up the shillelagh ever since. Help us celebrate 40 years by sharing your favorite OGS memories: email to email@example.com. Plan to join the biggest OGS Weekend in history on Oct. 5-7 when we gather in Denver to celebrate our 40th anniversary and cheer for S&T students competing in the 2017 Solar Decathlon.
