There are plenty of things going on now that we have gotten into the middle of the semester. Midterm exams and assignments are all coming up very quickly if you have not had them yet. I want to remind you all that there are a lot of options to get help if you might need it. Learning centers for all of the major classes are available by appointment and they usually have walk in hours. Additionally, there’s the Multiliteracies Center to help with all of your writing needs! I highly recommend checking some of these out before major assignments or exams come up.
As a useful check in, first year student midterm grades will be posted Monday, 17th October after 5 pm. This is a good way for you guys to check in on your classes and make sure you’re on the right track. This is also a good excuse to go and see your professors if you’re worried about anything with that class. Trust me, they want to talk to you! They appreciate seeing you and that could definitely help when it comes to making sure you do well in class.
With all of the craziness of midterms, this week is also the Pride Week sponsored by Keweenaw Pride. They host a bunch of awesome events to raise awareness and support for LGBTQIA+ causes and community, especially at Michigan Tech and in the Keweenaw.

Finally, there’s an opportunity for students to get involved with the Animal Care Facility. Here’s some more information about it!
The Animal Care Facility at Michigan Tech is looking for several undergraduate students. Primary duties including cleaning, record-keeping, and routine care of the animals. Approximately 10-15 hours/week are available for each student over Thanksgiving and Winter break. During school weeks, the schedule is generally lighter, usually 5 hours/week. The schedule is flexible and hours are arranged around classes. Students MUST be available and staying in the local area for the entirety of Thanksgiving and Winter break. Students should also be interested in working during Spring semester. Training would start the second week of November.

Have a good week!
