Great job representing the College of Arts, Sciences, and Business (CASB) by students, faculty, staff and the Dean’s Leadership Council. April has been a big promotional month for CASB with the ‘Thank You’ video and now the magazine. Now … […]

Posted by on March 29, 2018

We asked about your favorite place to eat, and boy did you respond. It was such an overwhelming response that Larry Gragg, author of Missouri S&T’s sesquicentennial history book, was inspired to write about it.

Each issue I always take special notice of the alumni who have most recently passed. The vast majority of the older alumni served their country during times of conflict and went on to complete long careers, often with only one or two companies. Although I am saddened by the passing of a great generation of […]

Letters to the editor: Fall/Winter 2016

Posted by on November 21, 2016

Accounts of my death have been greatly exaggerated. In the April 1987 MSM Alumnus on page 33 it was reported that I had passed away. Other than me being dead, all of the other details were correct. I have enclosed a copy of the front page of the Alumnus and page 33 for your review. […]

Obviously many other topics aside from the great inventors need to be addressed but the inclusion of these several alumni inventors is a great […]

I just received and read the Spring issue of Missouri S&T Magazine. I enjoy the articles and especially the notes about the old-timers of my generation and before.  However, I was disturbed by something in the article on page 38 titled “Reliving History.” My hat is off to men like Joseph Senne (MS CE’51) who […]

Letters – Fall/Winter 2014

Posted by on November 24, 2014

Of all the material I had read while searching for my dream career, I found this article to be the most inspiring; […]

A note from (Mehmet) Nihat Taner, MS CE’73

Posted by on April 3, 2014

It was a long journey from Istanbul. Our plane refueled somewhere near Ireland and then in a small airport in eastern Canada before landing at John F. Kennedy International Airport in New York. At JFK we learned that we must go to La Guardia Airport for the flight to St. Louis. There was another person, […]

The article on Ron Epps, Phys’67, was of high interest to me as there were four students from Mount Vernon High School in two consecutive years who were physics majors at (then) UMR – Epps, Nick Prater, Phys’67, Charles Steven Nichols, Phys’68, and myself. This would seem to be exceptional as our high school classes […]
