OGS celebrates 40 years

OGSdenverIn 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 alumni@mst.edu. 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.
