Welcome to Engineers’ Week! March 8-16, 2019
The University of Missouri has hosted this celebration of St. Patrick since 1903 when they discovered him to be an engineer.
Engineers’ Week is a tradition that started 115 years ago and includes eight days of fun, frolic and festivity that honors St. Patrick (the patron saint of engineering), celebrates the engineers and is considered the best time of year for engineering students. The celebration of E-Week extends beyond the College of Engineering. For starters, everyone knows when Engineers’ Week is here because the dome atop Jesse Hall is lit green.
So take pride in your engineering heritage, and become part of the tradition. Tell friends why Jesse Hall’s dome is green. Consider picking up a shirt, button, or other E-Week item to wear during the week (available at the sales table in Lafferre Hall). And, most importantly, grab a friend or two and go to one of the many events. You may never have more fun in your college years.
