Saint Leo University will once again serve as a sponsor of the NYC St. Patrick’s Day Parade and participate in 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.
