Modern Language Placement Exams @ No Cost

 I am happy to report that, in an effort to streamline the placement process for MTU students,  the Department of Humanities has agreed to assume the cost of the modern language placement exam beginning February 2013. Hence, there will be no charge to students for the exam going forward into the 2013-2014 calendar year.

 TAKE THE FIRST STEP

The online Modern Language Placement exam is being offered now until the close of Fall registration 2013.

 There is no cost for the exam. The exam is required for students with prior background in Chinese, French, German or Spanish.

 Exam score ensures appropriate course placement and possible award of advanced placement credit.

 The registration form is available online at:

http://www.mtu.edu/humanities/undergraduate/pdfs/mltestreg2013.pdf

or at the Humanities Office in Walker 319.

Beginning language courses are designed for “true beginners.” If the students you advise have had at least one year of prior language study, they are required to complete the Michigan Tech modern language placement test in order to be placed at the appropriate level.

Here is the newly revised link for placement exam registration:

http://www.mtu.edu/humanities/undergraduate/pdfs/mltestreg2013.pdf

Beginning Fall 2013, students who place into a 3000 level language class, and complete at least one language course at this level successfully, satisfy the Global Learning graduation requirement. In other words, they may opt out of UN1025: Global Issues. 3000 and 4000 level modern language classes are offered during Fall 2013 and Spring 2014 semesters.

School of Business and Economics Winter Carnival Statue

The theme for this year is “Heroes & Villains find their powers in these frozen winter hours…”

Some ideas that came about are:
the Superman symbol with $ symbol
Thor’s hammer with “Knowledge” on it, possibly on top of a briefcase

Some quotes to go along with the ideas:
“Give us money, we’ll double it in an hour with our super power”
“Super students have the power to double your money in an hour”

For ideas, a good start is the “Ultimate List of Super Heroes and Villains”:

Also, 1-2 volunteers are needed to help Lynn & Carly with the snow sculpture logistics. This would require a hour meeting every week or so until Winter Carnival; please contact them for more info.
