Secondly, here is a heads-up for two major student organization recruitment events that happen each Fall – K-Day and F’All Nighter – and a new community-wide event sponsored by the Memorial Union Board.

F’all Nighter is an orientation week event sponsored by Alpha Phi Omega, a service organization at Michigan Tech, and is designed to introduce first-year students to organizations on campus.  F’All Nighter will be held on Saturday, September 1, 2012 (time TBD) at the SDC and again, organizations set up engaging activities to showcase their organization.  The contact for F’All Nighter is Lydia Brame at

Keweenaw Day, or K-Day, a longstanding tradition at Michigan Tech sponsored by the InterFraternity Council, will be held on Friday, September 7, 2012 from noon to 4:00 pm at McLain State Park.  Organizations can set up booths to showcase their organization.  Every year at K-Day, there is food, music, and other fun activities.  2012 plans include live band karaoke, water slides and a climbing wall.  Questions about K-Day can be directed to Student Activities at, or call 906-487-1963.

Registration is currently open for both events:
For F’All Nighter, go to
For K-Day, go to

New for 2012, the Memorial Union Board is hosting a community-wide event on Saturday, September 8, 2012 (the day after K-Day) and is asking you to “save the date.”  They are inviting student organizations to set up their booths from 3:00 – 8:00 pm at the Chutes and Ladders Park in Houghton.  Bring yard games, activities, and more to engage community members and showcase what the University has to offer.  Since this event is community-wide, the MUB Board is expecting upwards of 8,000 people to attend!  Information about this event can be directed to David Shull at
