Saint Leo community invited to march in St. Patrick’s Day parades
Saint Leo University will once again serve as a sponsor of the NYC St. Patrick’s Day Parade and participate in the Savannah St. Patrick’s Day in Georgia. These two popular events attract hundreds of people each year, making the parades a great opportunity to generate awareness for Saint Leo.
Faculty, staff, students, and alumni are invited to be a part of a group that will march in the parades. Plan a weekend getaway to one of these great cities and help represent your university. To attend, register online at https://your.saintleo.edu/parade by March 11.
