This week has cooled off in the Keweenaw, but that doesn’t mean there is a lack of things to do! Alumni Reunion and the Keweenaw Science and Engineering Festival are in full swing, bringing together the community, visitors, and science.
The Alumni Reunion is an annual event that brings together alumni from around the country and includes plenty of activities to get everyone involved. From campus tours to class gatherings and photos, it is a busy weekend for people who spent their undergraduate time at Michigan Tech. To review events that occur during the Alumni Reunion, follow this link. This year the classes that graduated in 1965, ’75, ’85, ’90, ’95, and 2005 are being recognized along with hockey alumni. Additionally, the Golden M’s, any alumnus/a that has graduated from Michigan Tech over 50 years ago, are being honored.
The Keweenaw Science and Engineering Festival (KSEF) is a brand new event designed to get more people interested in science, technology, engineering and math. The schedule of events may be viewed here if you are interested in learning more about it. In conjunction with KSEF, there is an exhibit in the Rozsa Center Gallery called Scale: Balancing Art and Technology which will be displayed through September 11.
A couple of other reminders as the summer is winding down. New student orientation is just a few weeks away. To ensure you and your student are prepared, follow this link to the Orientation website. For students living in the residence halls, the wait-list for parking is now available. Follow this link to transportation services for more information on how to sign up.
As always, feel free to email me at firstname.lastname@example.org with any questions on this information or anything else.
Have a good week!
