Welcome to Summer!

Hello Parents,

I hope you’re all having a great week!  With finals complete and the spring semester finished, it’s time for Track A courses and the summer to finally begin.

As some of you may have noticed, there was an absence of last week’s article, and I sincerely apologize for this oversight. I will be sure not to let it happen again, and I hope that the information in this week’s post makes up for it!

This summer is filled with upcoming excitement as summer courses, campus tours, Summer Youth Programs, and Athletic camps take place throughout the four-month break until the 2014-2015 academic year begins. Wadsworth Hall will soon be abuzz with both undergrad students as well as students from these camps throughout the summer. The Rozsa Center will also host a plethora of events during the summer, as various performances will begin July 19 and continue through early August, when they take a short break until they come back in  full swing this fall. As you can see, there’s a lot to look forward to as we begin the summer term!

There’s also a lot to look forward to within the local community as well. Various summer events such as Bike to Work Day, the annual Bridgefest celebration, and the Art and Music Festival in Downtown Houghton will take place during this time. Many of these special events are local traditions, and I look forward to sharing more information about them as they approach this summer!  For more information on these and other events taking place in the Copper Country this season, please visit the City of Houghton Website.

As Track A courses start to take off, Housing and Residential Life has reopened for the summer on Saturday. Wadsworth Dining Hall also reopened for the summer today, and summer courses began today and continue until Thursday, June 26.  The last day for your students to drop Track A courses is Thursday, May 15. Track B Courses will begin June 3 and will continue through August 14.

As you can already see, there’s a lot to anticipate this summer, and it will definitely be a memorable one! Summertime in the Copper Country is truly a unique experience, and I’m excited to share all of the exciting events with you this coming summer. Until next time!

-Valerie
