Enterprise Day

Hello Commuters and welcome back to another edition of…

The Commute

Career Services will be holding some events this week to help prepare you for Career Fair, with advice on how to ask good questions to the recruiters and even how to answer the questions you get. On Monday, March 25th from 12:15-1:00 p.m. they will have a Virtual Career Fair Prep in person in Admin 220. If you are unable to make it to this session, they will also be holding an online session on Zoom from 2:00-3:00 that same day.

Are you interested in joining an Enterprise? Are you not completely sure what an Enterprise is? If so, it would be beneficial to attend Enterprise Day on Tuesday, March 26th from 6:00-9:00 p.m. in the Wads Annex. You can learn more information about enterprises from staff, and also current Enterprise teams and find an enterprise that would be best fit for you. Root beer floats will also be served. Make sure to take advantage of this opportunity because Enterprises are a great way to get involved on campus and also help prepare you for your future career.

Earlier in the semester I talked about the 41 North Film Festival and how they were streaming a bunch of movies. This coming weekend, on Friday, March 29th from 7:30-9:30 p.m. there will be a FREE SOLO film screening. Free Solo is about a gravity-defying free climber and his adventure of climbing a 3,000 foot high rock face in Yosemite National Park. Make sure to take a study break and enjoy the documentary in the Rozsa Center.

Also, on Saturday, March 30th from 10:00-11:00 p.m., Comedian Orlando Baxter will be in the MUB Ballroom. Orlando has shows all over the country, and in 2018 he performed stand-up on TBS’ Conan. Make sure to stop by and show your support and have a few laughs at this comedy show.

That is all this week for the blog. Make sure to start thinking ahead because finals will be starting very soon!

I hope you all have a great week.

Stay tuned next week for another edition of…

Welcome Back!

Hello Commuters and welcome back to another edition of…

The Commute

I hope you all had a great Spring Break and had a chance to take a break from studying and enjoy the week off!

There are not too many student based events going on this week, but that doesn’t mean you can’t take advantage of your Tech ID and go to the SDC. If you didn’t know already, all Michigan Tech students pay a Student Activities fee and one of the things this fee makes possible for you is to get into the SDC for free. At the SDC you can play basketball or volleyball in the multipurpose room, use the exercise equipment in the fitness center, or even playing racquetball in the racquetball courts. So, if you need a study break and want to get a good workout in, make sure to head up to the SDC. Just a reminder, there is also a Michigan Tech Shuttle that runs up that way, so if you don’t want to walk up the hill, you can get a ride up there with the Shuttle. You can go to: https://www.mtu.edu/transportation/options/shuttle/ to see the options and routes of the shuttles Tech has to offer.

One of the events going on this week is the MasterpiECE Mania Event. This event is put on by Institute of Electrical and Electronic Engineers. Entries are any project you’ve ever built in the past or built specifically for the competition that is directly related to electrical and computer engineering. 1st place can receive $500, 2nd place can receive $300 and 3rd place can get $200. Registration for projects is due by March 20th, and the event takes place on Thursday, March 21st from 6:00-10:00 p.m.

Another thing that the Student Activities fee covers is certain performances and events held at the Rozsa Center. This weekend, on Saturday, March 22nd at 7:30 p.m. there will be a Don Keranen Memorial Jazz Concert. This event is free for Michigan Tech students.

That is all this week for the blog.

I hope you all have a great week.

Spring Break!

Hello Commuters and welcome back to another edition of…

The Commute

If you attended the Michigan Tech Basketball games this past week, you would have seen that the women’s team won, and with they win they placed #1 in the GLIAC North Division. The basketball season is now over, but with that first place finish, the women’s team has clinched a first round home game for the playoffs. The first round of playoffs will be held on Tuesday, March 5th at 5:30 p.m. in the Wood Gym. The Huskies will be taking on Northwood, so make sure to stop by and cheer on the Huskies!

This is our last week before Spring Break! It’s hard to believe that it is already week 8.

This week, on Tuesday, March 5th from 6:00-8:00 p.m. there will be a “Build a Buddha Bowl” event going on in the MUB Commons, hosted by the Memorial Union Board. Here, you can learn how to make a quick and easy, health conscious meal. This is very beneficial if you are living on your own, or will be in the near future!

Also on Tuesday March 5th, from 6:30-7:30 p.m. there will be a “Maximize your Buzz” presentation hosted by Student Activities in the MUB Ballroom. This presentation will talk about making values-based choices about alcohol, as well as having safe practices.

 

This week’s featured student organization of the week is…

Mitch’s Misfits!

This is by far one of my favorite student organizations on campus. If you’ve ever been to a Tech hockey game, you’ve probably seen the big dedicated group of students standing the whole game. That is the Misfits, Tech’s #1 cheering section at Hockey games. Not only are the dedicated fans at home games, but they also travel to away games to cheer there. They even offer low price trips to those games for students (if they have enough seats). I actually traveled with them to Northern this past Saturday for the rivalry game and it was a blast!

Mitch’s Misfits are always welcoming new members to help cheer on our Huskies, so check them out and cheer with them at one of the hockey games if you are interested!

 

That is all this week for the blog! I hope you all have a great Spring break!
