Book Drive to Support Community Center in Ghana, Africa

Pavlis Institute for Global Technological Leadership this past summer  had the incredible opportunity to travel to Ghana, Africa to carry out numerous projects.  Part of the experience led to a community center in a small town called Abesim.  The Pavlis program has worked with this community center in the past, but the team felt that they should bring attention back to this incredible resource for students.  One of the most unfortunate things about this community center is that it is etremely lacking in educational material for students achieving higher education.  Therefore, as part of a Senior Capston Experience, Courtney De Cramer is working with the Ghana team that will be traveling to the country in the summer of 2016 to donate college-level textbooks to this community center.  Therefore, they are running a book drive from December 7-December 19 to collect any college level materials for the team to bring on their journey.  They will accept any and all donations.  To donate or for questions please contact Pete Seim (pjhokeme@mtu.edu) or Courtney De Cramer (ckdecram@mtu.edu).

See New York’s “Reigning String Quartet” ETHEL at the Rozsa Center

What’s the music like? Expect post-modern classical, with a bit of twangy-folk-fiddle sound thrown in. Should be a great concert, beautiful music with very cool videography based on the 1970’s “Project Documerica.” Experience the electrifying concert ETHEL: Documerica at the Rozsa Center for the Performing Arts tomorrow, Friday, November 6, 2015 at 7:30 PM.

Acclaimed as “unfailingly vital” (The New York Times), “brilliant,” “downtown’s reigning string quartet” (The New Yorker), and “one of the most exciting quartets around” (Strad Magazine), ETHEL invigorates the contemporary music scene with exuberance, intensity, imaginative programming, and exceptional artistry. Documerica features video projections that parallel the music, based on the 1971 Environmental Protection Agency’s Project Documerica photographs, which capture America’s sometimes fabled, sometimes fraught relationship to its land. The imagery of Project Documerica is the inspiration for ETHEL’s Documerica, which taps the archive’s rich evocation of time and place and brings its visual and emotional impact into dialogue with the 21st century. With Documerica, ETHEL invites audiences to contemplate individual and collective connections, action, and responsiveness to environmental and social challenges revealed through the repurposing of this distinctly American archive through the unifying language of art. Tickets for ETHEL: Documerica are on sale now, $19 for adults, $10 for youth, and no charge for Michigan Tech students with the Experience Tech fee. Advance reserved seating is now available, please order tickets early! Tickets are available by phone at (906) 487-2073, online at Rozsa.mtu.edu, in person at the Central Ticketing Office in the Student Development Complex, or at the Rozsa Box Office the evening of the performance.
