Though it is Monday today, everybody in the campus is excited about the coming Winter Carnival starting at 10 p.m Wednesday February 9. For transfer students, this is a really great time to enjoy your life here at Michigan Tech, such as building statues, have fun with your friends. The schedule of this year’s Winter Carnival can be checked online, the website is http://www.mtu.edu/carnival/schedule/.
Because Michigan Tech often registers more than 200 inches of snow in a season, it is really a waste to let this abundant natural resource melt. Thus Michigan Tech students get together in an annual celebration of our beautiful and tough climate. Gradually the celebration becomes our tradition as Winter Carnival. The Winter Carnival theme of this year is Thousands of Pages Unfold in the Bitter Cold.The picture showing below is one of the statues under construction.
One-nighter Statue construction begins at 4:00 p.m Wednesday. It is fun to join the activities that night because people around the campus usually get together to celebrate.
As a transfer student, I joined my community I-house to build a Mahjong statues last year. Building the statues brought me a lot of fun and this speaical experience became my treasure memory at Michigan Tech. I am so excited about the coming Winter Carnival and hope we all have fun.
Have a nice Winter Carnival, transfer students!
