Summer Deadline Approaching for The Washington Center Application

All Undergraduate Students,

If you don’t already have summer plans, listen up! This summer, Michigan Tech students can intern in the nation’s capital, and earn credits 10 credits towards graduation.

This is an opportunity to do an internship tailored to your interests, enhance your career development, and stay in housing that is in the heart of Washington DC.

You’ll be experiencing life as a D.C. professional, but you won’t be totally on your own. Through TWC, you’ll be living with fellow interns from schools around the country, and have a support system every step of the way.

If you’re thinking this might be the summer for your TWC experience, now’s the time to get started (the application deadline is March 13th). Get in touch with your campus liaison, Professor Susanna Peters and start an application. Trust us it will be a summer you’ll never forget.


Bi-Partisan Policy Center Congressional Visit to the Keweenaw

On Friday, March 1st, Congressman Jack Bergman (MI-1) and Congresswoman Stephanie Murphy (FL-7) visited Michigan Tech’s campus along their stops in Michigan’s first congressional district as a reciprocal visit for the Bi-Partisan Policy Center’s American Congressional Exchange (ACE).  ACE is a systematic approach to building better relationships and bipartisanship in Congress.

Both members of Congress share an interest in preservation of freshwater and our natural resources and therefore toured Michigan Tech’s Great Lakes Research Center and School of Forest Resources and Environmental Sciences.  In addition to learning more about research on campus, they joined a sell-out hockey crowd at MacInnes Ice Arena and dropped ceremonial pucks to  start the game against Upper Peninsula rival Northern Michigan University.  To round out welcoming our Floridian to a U.P. winter, they visited the opening of the CopperDog150 dogsled races hosted in downtown Calumet.
