Missouri S&T Miners (variously S&T or Missouri Miners) refers to the students, graduates, and sports teams of Missouri University of Science and Technology. Until 1964, the school was known as the "Missouri School of Mines", and until 2008 it was the "University of Missouri—Rolla". The nickname "Miner", or a variation of it, is common at mining schools in many states. The teams compete in Division II of NCAA sports. Missouri S&T was a long-time member (since 1935) of the Mid-America Intercollegiate Athletics Association (MIAA) until they joined the Great Lakes Valley Conference (GLVC) in 2005. Missouri S&T's official school colors are silver and gold; the color green has historic relevance and is also used prominently.[3] Men's teams are referred to as Miners and women's teams as the Lady Miners.
