Constitution Day Events
Essay Contest – Topic: Patriotism and the First Amendment
NFL teams play the Star Spangled Banner before every football game.  Colin Kaepernick, a player with San Francisco 49ers, has angered fans by refusing to stand during the song.  He chooses to remained seated or take a knee to highlight the problem of discriminatory police practices.  Unlike in the NBA, where players are required to stand, NFL rules are silent as to whether players must stand during the National Anthem. The NFL is reportedly considering requiring all players to stand for the Anthem. Refusal could result in a player being fined.  Would such a requirement be constitutional or would it violate the 1st amendment rights of individuals that choose to remain seated as a form of protest.  Would your response be different if it were a high school or university requiring all students to stand during the anthem or be ejected from the stadium as if they had engaged in other inappropriate behavior? Please support your position with a logical, constitutionally based argument in 600 words or less.
Send your essay to: Dr. Susanna Peters, speters@mtu.edu no later than Thursday September 15 at Midnight.
PRIZES: First, Second, and Third Place Winners will receive gift certificates to Campus Bookstore in the amounts of 1st $100, 2nd $50, 3rd $25.
Winners to be announced at the Husky Statue celebration,Friday, September 16, at Noon (East Reading Room of the Library if rain).

Canterbury House to Host John Shelby Spong
Sunday, September 11 from 2 – 4PM in the MUB Ballroom

World-famous biblical scholar, writer, speaker and human rights champion John Shelby Spong will speak to the intellectual and spiritual challenges of the 21st century during his visit to Michigan Tech.
As a visiting lecturer at Harvard, Cambridge and universities and churches throughout North America and the English-speaking world, Spong is one of the leading spokespersons for liberal Christianity.

He has initiated landmark discussions of controversies, particularly on racial inclusion, women’s ordination and justice for gay, lesbian and transgender people and has become an outspoken advocate for change. Spong proposes a Christianity based on justice and love rather than judgment and literal-minded readings of the Bible. He argues that fundamentalism is incompatible with true Christian faith.

The talk will be followed by a Q&A and book signing by the author. The public is welcome and there is no admission.

Make A Difference on Campus – Join the Student Commission

Ever notice something about Michigan Tech that could be improved? Have you had a great idea that

would have a positive effect on other students?

If yes, you are invited and encouraged to join us at the Student Commission meetings. We look to break

down the barriers that impede student’s success, and to improve Michigan Tech’s campus environment.

You’ll get the chance to have your ideas heard by staff, faculty, university officials, and most importantly

other students. We work together to act on your idea and make changes. Past accomplishments of the

Student Commission include:

  • Husky Food Access Network (Husky FAN) – The Student Commission continues to support and
  • promote Husky FAN.
  • Student Org Catering Menu – Student Organizations expressed concern regarding the increase in Dining Services food prices. After discussion with Dining Services a special catering menu was developed that had provided lower prices for student orgs.
  • Guaranteed Parking (Lot 11) – Students questioned why this lot couldn’t be open to use after 4:00 pm. After discussion, Facilities Management opened the gate from 4:00 pm to 7:00 am.
  • Transportation Services/Facilities Management Updates – Facilities Management is regularly invited to the Student Commission to provide updates, information, and answer any questions the group may have.
  • Maintenance Direct Work Order System – The Student Commission has promoted the Facilities Management “Maintenance Direct Work Order System” website so students can report any maintenance issues they may notice around campus.
  • Sustainability on Campus – Recycling continues to be improved and expanded on campus
  • Water Bottle Filling Stations
  • Value Statement
  • Relocation of Broomball Rinks
  • Designated Memorial Garden
