It’s time to start thinking about Winter Carnival 2018!
The theme this year is “Myths and Tales of the Past, in our Frigid Forecast”.
If you are planning on participating in Winter Carnival, please join our Winter Carnival Email list for any and all updates regarding Winter Carnival.
In order to join follow this link:
- Click the blue button that says “Join group to post”.
- Click “Join this group”.
There are also a few changes we would like to highlight for this year:
Window painting event has been replaced with “Banner Painting”. The banners will then be hung in business windows in downtown Houghton during January and February. A major change with this new event is that banners will need to be completed by December 15th in order for businesses to have adequate time to receive and display the banners. Additional details regarding the event are listed in the rulebook. Applications for the event close Friday, November 3rd and can be accessed here.
Due to declining participation, the interactive statue competition will no longer be a judged event. Organizations wishing to build statues that require participant interaction are encouraged to do so by opting into the category on the month-long statue application. Any questions regarding this change can be directed to email@example.com.
The final Stage Revue event held in the Rozsa Center for the Performing Arts on Thursday, February 7th will be free for all students thanks to a generous sponsorship from the Inter-Residence Housing Council (IRHC). A valid student ID must be brought to the event for student admission.
Lastly, attached is a PDF copy of the Rulebook for Winter Carnival 2018. All relevant dates to events, registrations, and meetings can be found there.
You can also find a copy of the Rulebook on Blue Key’s Involvement Link page, as well as on the Carnival website at: https://www.mtu.edu/carnival/
At this time, here are some upcoming dates and times for the next couple of weeks.
- Entry forms for Banner Painting go live Monday, October 30 and close on Friday, November 3.
- Entry forms for Queens go live November 3 at 8:00 am and close on November 17 at 5:00 pm.

- An Open Forum and Lottery for Month-Long statues will be held on November 9 at 5 pm in Fisher 138. Priority for Themes and Snow Statue Locations will be determined at this meeting. If you want priority for your location and theme, you must be present at this lottery. Only one representative from your organization needs to be present.
I hope that everyone is just as excited as we are for Winter Carnival 2018!

The University is conducting a campus-wide survey to find out what it’s like to work, live, and learn at Michigan Tech. The survey – called the Michigan Tech Assessment of Working, Living, and Learning – will help the University better understand the current climate at Michigan Tech, and how all members of our community experience it.
Creating and maintaining a community environment that respects individual needs, abilities, and potential is critically important. The assessment is designed to provide the administration with information about both positive and challenging aspects of life at Michigan Tech. It’s your opportunity to describe your personal experiences, your observations, and to offer suggestions for change that might enhance the campus climate.
The goals of the project are to: 1) identify successful initiatives, 2) uncover any challenges facing members of our community, and 3) develop strategic initiatives to build on the successes and address the challenges.
This research has been reviewed and approved by the Michigan Tech Institutional Review Board. Additional information about the project is available here.
You are encouraged to take the time to answer the questions by going to mtu.edu/worklivelearn. Completing the survey takes an average of 20 to 30 minutes, but it could take longer depending on your responses. All of your answers will remain confidential and the results will be reported in group form only. You will not be identifiable as an individual.
Thank you in advance for your contribution to this vital project.
