I hope you’ve all had a good time getting settled in to classes and have enjoyed the (mostly) awesome weather for the first couple weeks of classes! I know that this time can be very exciting and also intimidating looking into the rest of the semester, but fear not! There are plenty of resources at your disposal that can help if you need it. All of the Learning Center, the Wahtera Center, faculty office hours… all of these people are ready and waiting for students like you to reach out to them if you need help with anything. (Links to some of these resources at the bottom of the post).
Another aspect of the first couple weeks of classes is getting involved on campus! There are plenty of clubs and organizations that would love new members and even if you didn’t go to K Day, check them out on Involvement Link or pay attention around campus for fliers that might be interesting to you. If you feel like you are interested in something that you haven’t been able to find around campus or that Michigan Tech might not have, let me know and I can either help you find it or we can look into creating a group for it!
Additionally, the Student News Briefs is sent out every Friday with updates of events on campus that are coming up in the next couple of weeks. In the one sent out this past Friday, events range from the Color Run happening this weekend or BreakSk8 in the Rozsa this Saturday. Check it out and see what you might be interested in participating in this week!
Finally, I just want to remind you guys that I am here to be a resource for you. If you need anything, feel free to email me at firstname.lastname@example.org or swing by my office hours in the Wahtera Center. (Mondays: 9-10 and 3-4, Wednesday 12-1, or Thursday 10-11) I’m open to meet other times, just shoot me an email and we can set something up. Otherwise, I want to set up and plan events that you would like to do, so let me know! We can do pizza parties, rock climb at the SDC, go to Film Board movies together, ANYTHING*!
