Speaker and Author Aspen Matis

Mark your calendar to attend speaker and author Aspen Matis on Wednesday, April 5, 2017 at 8:00pm in Fisher Hall, Room 135. Aspen is the author of the internationally bestselling memoir Girl in the Woods, published by HarperCollins in 2015. The book has been called “a powerful read” by O, The Oprah Magazine, and it made The Guardian’s annual top 50 list. The New York Times named Aspen Matis “a hero.” After being raped on her second night at college, Matis dropped out. Depressed and shocked that her school didn’t believe and protect her, she sought solace in a remote wilderness; she found the Pacific Crest Trail and hiked the footpath’s entire length, over 2,000 miles from Mexico to Canada. www.aspen-matis.com A book signing will take place after the event.

Tech Theatre Explores the Life of Astronomer Henrietta Leavitt in “Silent Sky”

“Silent Sky,” a new play by Lauren Gundeson, tells the story of astronomer Henrietta Swan Leavitt. The play blends the discovery of how to measure the universe with the essence of the discoverer’s life story.  Set against the turmoil of the cry for social justice at the beginning of the 20th century, the chronicle of Henrietta Leavitt counterpoints the power of a passion for work with the desire for love and family. Please join Tech Theatre for a play that contemplates the life, challenges, and contributions to our understanding of the universe. 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.

Attention Student Organization Officer: Funding Opportunity

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.

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).
Husky Band, Reading of the Constitution, and cookies will be at the Husky, as well.

3rd Annual Rail Day & Railroad Night XII
The 3rd Annual Rail Day Expo & Railroad Night XII is coming soon! This event is a good opportunity to spend a casual evening and dinner with rail industry representatives, talk about career opportunities, and ask any questions about what life in the industry is like (did I mention there will be raffle prizes given away all night?!). The Rail Day Expo is good chance to see some examples of real-life railroad equipment and attend technical demonstrations to see how the equipment actually works. The activities will take place September 22nd & 23rd and are only a few days before the career fair, so you’ll have a chance to talk to most of the companies before you see them there!
Railroad Night requires a $5 admission. Tickets can be purchased around campus in the weeks leading up to the event. Ticket sales proceeds go to student raffle prizes.
