Happy St. Patrick's Week MSOE!
To celebrate this tradition we have posted a few items from the St. Patrick's Day Celebrations Collection (MSOE AC9) to share some of the week's history.

One of the longest running traditions that takes place during St. Pat's Week is the Proclamation Signing. Each year MSOE's President signs control of the School to the year's chosen St. Patrick (or King Patrick in some earlier years).
