Student Organization and Fraternity/Sorority Leaders and Advisors,

If you are looking for a community service opportunity and/or for something fun to do, the Michigan Tech Preschool would like to invite your organization to participate in our upcoming Bounce-O-Rama fund raising event as event volunteers.  This event is open to the entire community – including all ages up to high school and college students and adults.  What we are doing is a carnival-type event where we are having many inflatable obstacles and play areas brought in to the Multi-Purpose room in the SDC on Saturday, November 9th.

We need volunteers mainly to supervise the different areas – things like moon walks, inflatable slides, velcro wall, boxing ring, etc – to make sure the participants stay safe, stay in age appropriate groups, and to rotate participants through according to lines, time limits, etc.  We will train you and it is a fun and easy event.  A large part of our success with past Bounce-O-Ramas has been a great group of volunteers and we hope the campus community can help the Preschool again this year.  A summary of the details is below.

If your organization can participate, please get back to me by November 1st with a list of names and/or a number of volunteers your organization can commit to one or more shifts.  We will need about 20 total volunteers for each event shift and about 10 each for set-up and tear-down.

Michigan Tech Preschool is a non-profit parent cooperative preschool that has been serving the local community and its children for over 50 years.  We hope you will choose to work with us to continue our tradition of affordable early childhood education.

Diwali, also referred to as “Festival of Lights”, is India’s biggest and most popular holiday of the year. Diwali signifies the triumph of good over evil. Indians celebrate with family gatherings, glittering clay lamps, festive fireworks, strings of electric lights, bonfires, flowers and sharing of sweets. The Indian Students Association (ISA) at MTU, one of the most active student organizations on campus, has always enjoyed sharing its culture with the international community. “Diwali Night” is the biggest cultural event held by a student organization at Tech, which gives us an opportunity to celebrate Diwali with everyone around. It enjoys a wide spread popularity throughout the campus and also the local community with as many as 800 people attending the event every year.

This year performances revolve around the theme “The BIG FAT Indian Wedding”, featuring music band show, Bollywood dancing, classical Indian dance, traditional fashion show and much more…

Changes Made to Experience Tech Hockey Ticket Procedures

Michigan Tech students receive free admission to home hockey games thanks to the Experience Tech Fee. The process by which they will gain entrance to games has changed for 2013-14.

Students no longer need to pick up tickets in advance. Thanks to the new technology available in the HuskyCards that were issued this fall, students will be able to touch their ID card to a scanner at the door. The student entrance will be at the northwest corner of the arena (closest to Portage Health University Center).

As in the past, the first 750 students will be admitted free and may sit in any Experience Tech seat. Those seats are located in sections K, L, M, N and O of the arena and designated with a sticker on the seat back.

Doors open prior to each home hockey game one hour in advance. To ensure the best seats, students should be present when the arena opens.

Michigan Tech begins its 2013-14 hockey season this Saturday, October 5 with a contest vs. Laurentian. Opening faceoff is set for 7:07 PM.

FinanceU- Financial Literacy Tool

The Office of Financial Aid and the student Finance Club have partnered to offer FinanceU, a financial literacy program designed to increase financial awareness of students and to assist students in making informed financial decisions now and in their professional lives.  The Finance Club is advised by Emanuel Oliveira in the School of Business and Economics. The Financial Aid Office representative is Cindy Cowell.

FinanceU is a great avenue to introduce students to CashCourse, a free financial literacy tool sponsored by the Alumni Association and available on the Financial Aid website at www.cashcourse.org/michigantech.

In addition to the FinanceU events, the Financial Aid Office can be contacted to schedule a financial literacy presentation or one on one assistance. The presentations or meetings can be conducted in any area of financial literacy including budgeting, student loans, financial aid, or savings, to name just a few.

An informal survey of students attending a FinanceU event last December showed that students can enhance their financial literacy skills. Of the respondents, 78% have a savings plan with 100% of those with a savings plan indicating that the tool they use for tracking saving is their checking account. Other savings tools used include a piggy bank, securities and no tool used.

Only 15% of those surveyed budget their money.  The budgeting tools used by this 15% include Quick Books, Mint.com, an online banking site, phone apps or calculations hand.

The Financial Literacy Program is available for presentation to any student group. For more information or to schedule a presentation, contact Cindy Cowell in office 143 of the Waino Wahtera Center for Student Success in the Administration Building suite 130  or at ccowell@mtu.edu or 487-2622.
