St. Pat’s Panel Discussion: What the “Best Ever” Celebration Has Meant to S&T and Beyond

Thursday, October 14, 2021 at 3:00pm to 4:30pm

Havener Center, St. Pat's Ballroom 206C

In this program, the 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.
