The End is Near!

Hello Commuters and welcome back to another edition of…

The Commute

I hope you all had a great Thanksgiving break, hopefully it isn’t too hard to get back into the swing of things for these last few weeks of the semester.

On Tuesday, November 27th from 4:00-5:00 p.m. there will be a Diverse Dialogues presentation going on in the Library in the East Reading Room. This presentation is being put on to help examine African American experience in the Keweenaw, and also learning how we can include this diversity when telling about our past in the Copper Country.

Also on Tuesday from 6:00-7:00 p.m. is a Recognizing and Addressing Roots of Sexism presentation that will be taking place in MUB Ballroom B2 and B3. This workshop will be a great tool to learn more about language to use when addressing sexism, and also identifying sexism that students have observed. This is a beneficial workshop to attend, so I highly encourage attending if you have time.

Thanksgiving has passed, so now Christmas is on the horizon. This Wednesday, November 28th from 5:00-6:00 p.m. is a Modern Languages Holiday Celebration event in Walker 134. At this event, there will be a unique celebration of Spanish, French, and German holiday traditions. There will be snacks, sing alongs, and also a Christmas Bingo. Make sure to stop by this event and learn how other cultures celebrate Christmas and start getting in the Christmas spirit!

On Thursday, November 29th from 7:00-9:00 p.m. there will be a Painting Night for students to destress from the week. This event will be held in The Alley Makerspace (MUB B002). You can paint on a variety of surfaces such as canvas, glass, or rock. Make sure to join the Memorial Union Board and create something special (who knows, your painting could even be used for a Christmas present).

Our Michigan Tech Men’s Hockey team is currently #1 in the WCHA and they have a set of home games this weekend on Friday and Saturday. The puck drops at 7:07 p.m. both nights. Make sure to cheer on our Huskies as they play Bemidji State.

Don’t forget to start studying for your final exams! These last few weeks go by quick, so make sure to end the semester strong.

Stay tuned next week for another edition of…
