MUB Board Stuff- A-Husky Event
It’s that time of the year again when we become surrounded in a world full of pink and hearts and a tiny baby shooting arrows at people to make them fall in love (which doesn’t sound very safe). Well, we can’t completely ignore the world of Valentine’s Day so let’s make the most of it together. Bring your special someone (or your single friends) to the MUB Commons on Thursday, February 11 at 7:00PM to adopt and stuff a new cuddle buddy. We will provide the animals (huskies, penguins, bears, puppies, and more), and the stuffing. You just need to bring a smile and provide a loving home for your new stuffed animal. Oh and make sure to bring your HuskyCard to receive an animal at no cost – while supplies last!
Showtimes in Fisher 135:
We hope to see you at the show this weekend, and have a great day!

Winter Carnival CashKey Special
Transportation Services is running a Winter Carnival special on cash keys:
If you routinely park at the on-campus metered spaces, you may want to consider purchasing a CashKey. A CashKey is a simple round key that can be attached to your car keychain and be used in place of quarters to quickly and conveniently purchase time at a parking meter.
CashKeys may be purchased and reloaded at the Transportation Services office (Admin 100) in amounts of $25, $50, or $100. CashKeys allow parking at a rate of $0.75/hour and may only be used in hour increments. There is a $25 deposit fee that will be refunded upon return of your CashKey.
The Winter Carnival special will run the whole month of February. All CashKey amounts will be discounted 10 percent. That means you can get $25 of parking for $22.50, $50 of parking for $45, or $100 of parking for $90.
Winter Carnival Parking and Extended Shuttle Service
In order to accommodate the many visitors during Winter Carnival, the following lots will be available beginning at 4 p.m. on Wednesday, Feb. 3rd (Lot 11 opens 4 p.m. on Friday, Feb. 5th), free of charge, no permits required.
Lot 9 (commuter lot by the Rozsa Center)

Lot 27 (pay lot between the Administration Building and MUB)
Overnight parking – you may park in Lot 9, the commuter lot by the Rozsa without a permit.
Lot 11 (near the Administration Building) will be open at 4 pm on Friday.
Lastly, there will be free parking at all metered areas. However, please be aware that all other areas/lots not listed above will be fully enforced as usual.
Transportation Services will also extend its operations during Winter Carnival. The MTU shuttle service will run from 1 p.m. to 10 p.m. Wednesday through Saturday. The City of Houghton shuttle service will run its regular scheduled service. Please remember that the MTU shuttle bus is not equipped to handle children but you may utilize the on-demand service that the City of Houghton provides.
We hope you enjoy this expanded shuttle service during Winter Carnival and free parking in designated areas.
