Music, and Theater

Hello Commuters!

There’s plenty going on around campus this week, so instead of a long introduction let’s dive into things.

This Wednesday in the Rozsa theater you can come see the high energy show Children of Metropolis. This is a traveling show, originating from Canada, that features a large group of performers all playing different percussion instruments. Many of the instruments featured are being made from different pieces of scrap and metal which is sure to create and interesting show. The show is this Wednesday in the Rozsa starting at 7:30pm.

If you’re looking to hear a very different kind of music consider checking out Keweenaw Awesome Fest or Kfest. Kfest is a two day music festival that takes place in the McArdle Theater (Second Floor Walker) and is entirely run by our campus radio station WMTU and students of the Visual and Performing Arts Department. Music starts at 6pm on Friday and will run until midnight, with the same being true for the Saturday shows. Music style ranges from alternative to hard rock to some stuff that’s just hard to describe, but there’s definitely something for everyone at Kfest. If you’re interested in attending tickets will be sold at the door and can be purchased for one or both nights. For more information visit the official Kfest website.

That’s all I have for this week, but be sure to come back next time for another issue of…

Spring Break

Hello Commuters

As I’m sure everyone is aware Spring Break is just around the corner. One last break from the hustle and bustle of the semester before we enter the final push. While you may want to take the entire week off to not think about school, I would also consider looking over some of your coursework as well. I always find that the semester gets more and more hectic as it goes on, and any chance I get to work ahead is a blessing. You should definitely all take some time away from the school, travel to a new place, do something you enjoy. But don’t forget that if you take a little time out of your non-busy week now, it just might save you from being overloaded later on.

Another point to bring up is that registration for the fall semester is rapidly approaching. It’s always a good idea to make a plan for the next year and meet with your advisor to see if you’re on the right path. I even recommend that you form a plan that guides you through the rest of your time in college. Will the plan change? Undoubtedly. But having a ground plan never hurt anyone and can be a major asset when it comes to graduating on time. I’ve run into too many people that get to their final semester and have to take 1.5 credits of co-curricular still. Trust me, no one wants to be the person taking tennis, weight lifting, and skiing in one semester after not exercising for the past two some years.

That’s all I have for this week, not too much going on around campus since break is starting up. But be sure to come back after break to learn about all the ways you can get involved on campus, in the next issue of…
