Join us 3- 4 p.m. on Thursday, October 14 in the St. Pat’s Ballroom of the Havener Center where panelists will discuss the university’s St. Pat’s celebration and what it has meant to the campus over the decades. The event will also offer an opportunity for audience members to share their memories and anecdotes about their own St. Pat’s experiences.
As the university’s longest-running tradition and its signature event, St. Pat’s is an essential subject for discussion, analysis, and commemoration during the university’s 150th anniversary celebration.
Moderated by Dr. Patrick Huber, professor of history, the panel will feature:
- Dr. Simon J. Bronner, former Maxwell C. Weiner Visiting Distinguished Professor of Humanities at S&T and author of Campus Traditions: Folklore from the Old-Time College to the Modern Mega-University
- Dr. Larry Gragg, S&T Curators’ Distinguished Teaching Professor emeritus of history and political science and author of Forged in Gold: Missouri S&T’s First 150 Years
- Debra Griffith, S&T archives librarian
- Dr. Jeff Schramm, S&T associate professor of history and current St. Pat’s Board advisor
The event is being co-sponsored by Coterie.
