Autism In Love Poster 1

Join the Spectrum Connection for a Viewing of Autism in Love

“Autism in Love is a feature length documentary that explores the lives of four autistic adults as they pursue and manage romantic relationships. Autism is a neurological disorder characterized by impaired social interactions and communication, and often restricted by repetitive behavior. It typically reveals itself in the first three years of a child’s development and can be highly variable in it’s symptoms.

The manifestations of autism affect everyone a little differently.

The spectrum ranges from individuals with severe impairments – who may be silent, mentally disabled, and locked into hand flapping and rocking – to high functioning individuals who may have active but distinctly odd social approaches, narrowly focused interests, and verbose, pedantic communication.
In recent years, the rate of autism spectrum disorder diagnosis has increased at an alarming rate making some question whether an epidemic is imminent. Is autism an unfortunate bi-product of modern immunizations, dietary shifts or genetic mutations? Or, has increased awareness and knowledge caused this rapid increase in diagnosis?” –autisminlove.com

The New HuskyCard

Do you use the US Bank debit feature on your HuskyCard? If so, please be aware of these important dates:

  • February 21: Any card replacements issued after this date will no longer have the US Bank feature. However, if no replacement is needed and your card has been previously activated, then your current HuskyCard will still work as a bank card through June 2016.
  • June 30: You must withdraw any remaining balance on your card by this date; contact US Bank and any remaining account balance will be returned to you.

If you have never activated the US Bank feature, then this change to the HuskyCard will not affect you, and you can use your card as you have in the past. In the end, this change will make replacing and issuing cards a simpler process for you.

Read more about the HuskyCard changes in our Customer Support Center at the following link.

Hearing Loop System in Fisher 135

Recently, Institutional Equity and Inclusion (IEI) and Information Technology (IT) coordinated the installation of a hearing loop system in Fisher Hall, Room 135. This system allows students, employees, and community members who use hearing aids to have a greater ability to hear the content of classes, programs, and events in this room. The idea of a hearing loop system was originally brought forward by a hearing impaired student. The Calumet Theatre has a hearing loop system and this student indicated that Michigan Tech could benefit from a similar system. Funding for diversity and disability initiatives, received from The General Motors Corporation, was devoted specifically to this hearing loop system. IEI and IT worked with Hearing Loop Systems from Holland, MI to determine the best options for Michigan Tech. In the future, as new construction is designed on campus, hearing assistance systems will hopefully be incorporated. IEI would like to promote the availability of the hearing loop system on campus. If your department, group, or organization is hosting an event in Fisher 135 please include the statement “Fisher 135 is Hearing Loop equipped” in your advertising. If you have questions or feedback about the system please email equity@mtu.edu.

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 5 (graduate student lot by the Rozsa)

     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.

For any questions or comments regarding Winter Carnival parking regulations or shuttle bus service please call Transportation Services at 487-1441 or Public Safety and Police Services at 487-2216.

Opening Reception For Noise Floor Tomorrow

Noise surrounds us. In the industrial world we are constantly bombarded with sounds, most of which we no longer even notice (the hum of compressor motors, the whine of routers, the whirr of hard drives, the roar of lawnmowers).

Noise Floor is an interactive exhibit by artist Josh Loar (VPA), focused on the pervasive noise around us, mechanical and cultural–bringing into focus sounds that we normally shut out of our conscious minds.

Join us for a reception with the artist at 5:30 p.m. tomorrow. in the Rozsa Gallery A-Space. This exhibit is free and open to the public, and will be in the Rozsa Gallery A-Space through jan. 30.

Gallery hours are 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. M-F and 11 a.m. to 8 p.m. on Saturdays. Loar, Professor of Practice in the Department of Visual and Performing Arts, is a multimedia artist and designer whose works have been featured in galleries and salons from NYC to Los Angeles, and his design and music composition has been featured in countless stage shows, films, TV programs, theme parks, concerts, and so on. He is a composer, multi-instrumentalist, producer, director, writer, painter, filmmaker, and all-around general artist type.

unnamedApply to Join the Pavlis Honors College

Are you interested in joining a community of self-motivated, independent-thinking students who take charge of their education and full advantage of all that Michigan Tech has to offer? If so, consider applying to the Pavlis Honors College’s Scholars and Leaders Programs.

All motivated and committed undergraduate students in good academic standing are invited, regardless of GPA.

The current application window will remain open until March 1 for students wishing to join the college in fall.

All scholars and leaders students take core courses, participate in an immersion experience and carry out an honors project. The Scholars and Leaders Programs offer multiple pathways for students to complete the requirements for Pavlis Honors College designation on their diplomas and transcripts as well as special recognition in the graduation program.

One pathway is the well-established Pavlis Institute for Global Technological Leadership which is designed to prepare students to become successful leaders through focused coursework and interdisciplinary, team-based project work implemented in a cross-cultural environment.

Students applying to this program should have at least three years remaining in their undergraduate degree program and be prepared to travel to one our foreign project centers the summer between their third and fourth years of study at Michigan Tech.

A second pathway is the new Peace Corps Prep program, an official partnership with the U.S. Peace Corps. This program prepares undergraduates for Peace Corps service or other cross-cultural, community-based professional work. Students gain cross-cultural and foreign language learning experience in and out of the classroom. They also gain first-hand experience in a prominent sector of community development work, such as health, education or environment. The Peace Corps Prep program emphasizes establishing strong cross-cultural professional partnerships and developing an interdisciplinary framework for addressing pressing global problems such as climate change, sanitation, childhood malnutrition, girl’s education and others.

Students can customize their area of focus to fit their personal interests. Students applying to this program should have at least two years remaining in their undergraduate degree program.

Third, is the Custom Pathway Program, where students can customize their own pathway to incorporate an enterprise experience, student research, an entrepreneurial endeavor or an industrial internship, to name just a few options, to complete the Pavlis Honors College requirements.

If none of our established pathways suit your needs and interests, design your own and work with the college’s faculty and staff to realize your vision for success.

For more information, read here and attend one of the following Pavlis Honors College Information Sessions scheduled in the coming weeks. All information sessions will be held in the Pavlis Honors College Collaboration Space – Minerals and Materials Building, room 722 (facing the Portage Canal).

  • January 28 — from noon-1 p.m.
  • February 11 — from 6-7 p.m.

Intermittent nighttime closures of Portage Lake Lift Bridge set for week of January 25

Intermittent nighttime closures of the Portage Lake Lift Bridge have been scheduled for January 25-29 as part of ongoing maintenance work. The closures will likely result in delays for motorists. The contractor for the Michigan Department of Transportation (MDOT) will be testing new bridge components. These tests require a series of lifts of the bridge span and a full closure of the bridge to traffic. Motorists should expect delays of up to 15 minutes between 7 and 11 p.m.and delays of up to 30 minutes between 11 p.m. and 4 a.m. during the testing period. The lower bridge deck will be closed to snowmobile traffic during these tests. The $8.4 million project involves upgrades and preventive maintenance on the Portage Lake Lift Bridge between Houghton and Hancock. The project started in mid-December 2014 and is scheduled to be completed in mid-April 2016.

MTMC Holding Online Appointments

The Michigan Tech Multiliteracies Center is a free interdisciplinary resource for Tech students, faculty and staff working on diverse types of writing and presentations typically encountered in academic and professional life. We commonly assist with resumes, reports, essays, multimedia projects, speeches, document formatting and citations.
The MTMC is available for scheduled classroom workshops, and we are dedicated to working with instructors of all diciplines. Michigan Tech institutional research has found that students who sign up for MTMC appointments are more likely to receive higher grades and return the following year.
We hope all instructors encourage their students to visit the MTMC for writing and presentation assignments. In order to help instructors offer extra credit for MTMC attendance, we provide “receipt of appointment” slips to students on request.
This semester, the MTMC is starting a new email tutoring service. Students will be able to email their papers to the MTMC and receive written feedback. Because this service is new, it will have limited availability (six appointments per week).
For videos and written instructions about how to make an appointment with the MTMC, visit our website.
The MTMC offers students study teams, one-on-one sessions, graduate writing groups, standing weekly appointments and online appointments. We work with students on every stage of the writing and presenting process, from brainstorming to polishing.
Questions and requests can be directed to Bill De Herder, the MTMC Assistant Director. The MTMC is located in the Walker Arts and Humanities Center, Room 107.
