Skate Rental Center Dedication & Grand Opening

Join Athletics and Recreation in celebrating the grand opening and dedication of the Skate Rental Center this Saturday, October 16, at the John MacInnes Student Ice Arena. Located on the ice level, the Skate Rental Center will have a full inventory of skates and helmets in youth and adult sizes and will also provide skate sharpening services.

Festivities will kick off at 12:30pm with a dedication ceremony in honor of Charlotte Jenkins and Cheryl DePuydt. Jenkins, an undergraduate student and resident assistant who had a passion for skating, was known for offering extra skates to friends, residents, or anyone looking to learn to skate. DePuydt was an ardent supporter of MTU Athletics throughout her life; helping start women’s athletics at the university and forming the MTU Skating Academy. Cheryl’s contributions to Michigan Tech are still felt today, especially when it comes to skating and women’s athletics. Those unable to attend may view a live stream of the dedication.

The dedication ceremony will be followed by an open skate with free skate rental during the event.
