Fellow students,

On behalf of the Missouri S&T chapter of the NSSGA (National Stone, Sand, and Gravel Association),

we would like to invite you to our first meeting on Wednesday, September 6th, at 6pm in McNutt 206.


This year, our student chapter continues to be recognized as a part of the national organization. By doing so, members will have access to

? Scholarships

? Exclusive educational resources

? National conferences and workshops

? Industry speakers and sponsors directly connected to our chapter

? Networking with industry members in smaller settings

? Free DINNER for members at monthly meetings

? Raffles for attending meetings

? Easy fundraising opportunities to pay for trip expenses


AGG1 Aggregates Academy and Expo occurs every 2 years. Our chapter has the opportunity to attend the conference this spring, March 6-8 in Houston, TX.  Previously the organization has been comprised mainly of Mining Engineering students; However, with NSSGA’s strong influence in the construction industry, we would like to extend an invitation to anyone interested in this career path. Whether you are in Freshman Engineering, Civil, Geology, Chemistry, English, Math, History ... the aggregates industry could use your input and expertise. Make sure to visit our chapter’s site , as well as the national website.


The chapter has four available positions for the upcoming 2018-2019 scchool year. This is a great way to get your “feet wet” in an organization without too much commitment.  Whether it's your freshman or your super senior year, we invite you to attend. Make valuable connections with industry that will help secure your future.


We encourage you to attend our upcoming meeting to see what our organization is about. Feel free to contact the chapter’s  current president, Greg Velders, if you have questions.


We look forward to seeing you,

NSSGA officers

Annual Haunted Mine

hosted by the mining department students

If you havent heard of the haunted mine, it is the largest fundraising event the Mining Department puts on.  Students design, build, and scare at Missouri S & T's Experimental mine.  All of the proceeds from admission are disbursed among all of the students who have met the working qualifications.  The money "hourly wage" is based upon the total amount of hours that all students have worked divided by the total revenue (less expenses) generated by the admission charge.  The income each student generates is  "donated" to the organization(s) of choice to be used for conferences or competition fees.  

This fundraiser is a great way to get to know your fellow students and departmental staff.  It is also a great way to reduce your out-of-pocket expense for conferences and/or competitions.
