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 firstname.lastname@example.org. 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.
Every April, Missouri S&T shines the spotlight on giving during Philanthropy Month. This year’s theme, Digging Deeper to Make a Difference, celebrates the many ways our students, faculty, staff, alumni and friends are stepping up to share the spirit of Miner pride. From Random Acts of Kindness to the Battle of the Brains scholarship trivia night to a Philanthropy Fair highlighting student organizations and the charities they support, April is a special month when giving back and going the extra mile create magic across Miner Nation. Watch for details to come.
