St. Pat’s: S&T goes green

For a few days in March, the Missouri S&T campus — and the Rolla community — paint the town green. Here are a few scenes from the 109th Best Ever St. Pat’s. See more photos from the weekend.

During Follies, students competed to see how many St. Pat’s sweatshirts they could put on in a minute.

St. Pat and his court judged show shillelaghs during Follies on Wednesday .

Students volunteered for community service projects around town for Gonzo Gives Back.

This year’s traditional court photo with Chancellor Schrader was snapped with campus and community members at Coterie’s annual St. Pat’s Ball.

Just before dawn on parade day, St. Pat’s Committee members and alumni painted Pine Street green.

The weather was beautiful, and the parade drew an impressive crowd all along Pine Street.

Following the parade, alumni and friends gathered at Hasselmann Alumni House for an old-fashioned pig roast.

Neal Grannemann, Chem’61, and his wife, Lynn, visited during breakfast before the parade.
