The Grateful Board festival is part of Missouri S&T’s “Best Ever” St. Pat’s celebration, organized by the students of the St. Pat’s Celebration Committee. The campus celebration began in 1908, when a group of Rolla students declared St. Patrick to be the patron saint of engineers. St. Pat’s has grown to encompass a full week of events, as well as campus traditions that begin in early March. For more information about the events, visit stpats.mst.edu.
