Ms. Leavitt discovered the first way of measuring the universe, to demonstrate that heavens were larger than the Milky Way, the limit of creation in her day.  Tech Theatre Presents “Silent Sky,” for two weeks, Thursday – Saturday, October 13 – 15 and 20 – 22, in the McArdle Theatre, at 7:30 PM each night.

Cummins, Inc. is offering your student organization the chance to receive funding!  In order to qualify for the funding, Cummins would like each student organization to create a 10-15 minute video presentation based on the template, Cummins Sponsorship Event 2016.  The presentation video needs to be made and submitted to Joe Thompson (josephth@mtu.edu) in the Pavlis Honors College by Friday, November 4th at 12:00 PM.  Cummins representatives will review the video presentations and award funding a few weeks after submission.

Over $5,000 in funds was distributed last year and we anticipate a similar amount available this year.  Based on feedback from last year, a successful presentation is concise but still provides suitable justification for each bulleted item in the presentation template.

Sexual Violence Support Group for Students

T.E.A.L (To Empower And Liberate) is a group that provides support to Michigan Tech Students who have experienced sexual violence including childhood sexual abuse.

This group provides support to individuals of recent or past sexual violence in a safe, non-judgmental group. Individuals might know the person that committed the violence or it could be a stranger to them. Either way with the help of our group individuals can find understanding and help by sharing their struggles and triumphs with one another and begin to put their lives back together.

T.E.A.L offers a support group that meets every other Thursday from 3:00 pm to 4:00 pm starting on 10/13/16. Through discussion, support and education we can help one another. (Location of the meeting is undisclosed – interested students would need to please contact Peggy at psullivan@dialhelp.org)

Accordingly, the water is analyzed and the temperature is taken daily. The temperature fluctuates between 81-87 degrees and this will depend on the pool usage, outside temperature and water flow rate. The water is replenished automatically due to water lost through splash, backwashing of sand filters and evaporation. This new cool water intake will not be 81 degrees until it is well mixed into the existing pool water.

Registration and payment can be completed online, by phone at 906-487-2073, or at the SDC Ticket Office.
*You’ll receive an admission ticket to present to your instructor on the first day of class.
