Mo. S&T prepares for 105th St. Pat's celebration

The Missouri University of Science and Technology is continuing a tradition that began in 1908 when a group of Rolla students declared that St. Patrick was the patron saint of engineers.

The St. Patrick's celebration has grown to include more than a week's worth of events. The first is from March 4 through March 7 when students will club plastic snakes with large decorative sticks called shillelaghs. On March 13, a Missouri S&T student portraying St. Pat will arrive in downtown Rolla with his court aboard the traditional manure spreader.
