A welcome Blizzard in October!

On Monday, October 13, after much anticipation, Husky Plaza was finally made complete with the dedication and unveiling of the new statue, dubbed “Bronze Blizzard.” The air was brisk but charged with excitement. The Huskies Pep Band gave their customary spirited performance and the Alumni Association served free root beer floats.


After brief speeches from President Glenn Mroz, Dan Lorenzetti, Darnishia Slade, Past President of the Alumni Association, and Alissa Alexander of the Student Philanthropy Council, a coalition of students removed the drape and we all welcomed our newest addition to campus.

With true Michigan Tech spirit, the students made the statue their own, taking “selfies” and even climbing up on the statue!

A video of the dedication is available here.
