It’s That Time of the Year!

Hello Commuters!

As I’m sure all of you are aware winter carnival is just about upon us. With carnival comes a whole mess of events and opportunities to have fun and get involved on campus. However, I would like to take this time to remind everyone to stay safe during carnival activities. Remember if you are out working on statues during the all nighter to stay warm and take breaks to go inside if it’s too cold. Dressing in layers is the best way to conserve heat while working outside so maybe throwing on an extra t-shirt under your coat could make the difference between having an enjoyable winter carnival and getting hypothermia. Now onto some actual events taking place this week.

If you’re reading this today (2/3/17), then you still have time to go and see the Superior Wind Symphony show at 7:30PM in the Rozsa Center. Titled “Michigan Music” the show will feature songs by artist such as Stevie Wonder and the Count Basie Orchestra. The symphony is comprised mainly of students here at MTU such as yourself and their shows are always very well performed.

If your interested in study abroad come join International Programs and Services for an informational session. The session will be focused specifically on students interested in taking their study abroad in Japan. Information will be provided about housing, scholarships and the application process to make the trip. If you’re interested be sure to come to the session on February 13th from 6-7:30 in MUB Ballroom B3.

Lastly the MUB will be hosting a live band karaoke night this coming Wednesday during the all nighter. Much like regular karaoke you and your friends have the chance to sing along with your favorite songs, but instead of having a machine a live band will be present. Boasts a knowledge of over 500 songs to choose from the backing band will be sure to have something that appeals to your taste. The karaoke will run from 8-11pm in the MUB commons so feel free to stop by.

That’s all I have for now, but remember to come back next week for another post in The Commute!
