Stay Warm!

Hello Commuters and welcome back to another edition of…

The Commute

Make sure to stay warm this week, as it will be very cold within the next few days.

Winter Carnival is approaching soon, which means that there will be some more events going on for it within the next few weeks.

This week, on Tuesday, January 29th from 9:00 p.m. to 12:00 a.m. there will be Ice Bowling at the John MacInnes Student Ice Arena. During ice bowling, one member will sit on a sled while the rest of the team members will slide them down the ice into the pins. A lot of these events are for Winter Carnival special participating organizations, but that does not mean that you cannot go and cheer on your favorite organization! On Friday, February 1st from 6:00-8:30 p.m. there will also be Speed Skating as a part of Winter Carnival. This will also be held at the Ice Arena. You may have seen a lot of different flyers around bulletin boards on campus, and those are for the Queens Coronation! There are many contenders sponsored by organizations on campus and local businesses that are running for Michigan Tech Winter Carnival Queen this year. Join this Queen Coronation with Blue Key and see who will be crowned on Saturday, February 2nd from 7:00-9:00 p.m.

There will be a Career Fair again this Spring, so that means that it is time to touch up your resume (especially if you are a first year who just completed their first semester). On Wednesday, January 30th from 11:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. there will be a Resume Lab for First-years in Career Services (220 Admin). You can come anytime during the period, just make sure to bring your laptop!

Finally, the organization that will be sponsored in this article is… The Michigan Tech Pep Band! If you have ever been to a Michigan Tech Athletic game, I am sure you have seen (and heard) the Pep Band in their yellow and black striped overalls. The Pep Band knows how to get the crowd going, and their chants are always creative. If you have played an instrument in high school, or even in your free time, I would highly recommend joining the Pride of Pastyland!

That is all for this week’s blog. I hope you get to enjoy some Winter Carnival activities (without being too cold).

Stay tuned next week for another edition of…
