Juneteenth Celebration

Join Residence Education and Housing Services for a Juneteenth Celebration on Friday, June 17th from 1-3pm on the Douglass Houghton Hall Yard!

There will be a trivia contest with prizes, as well as snacks and yard games available to play! This event will also have educational materials to learn more about the history of the holiday. 

The origins of Juneteenth are directly related to the arrival of Union soldiers in Galveston, TX on June 19, 1865, who were ordered to inform the enslaved people and the state’s residents that slavery had been abolished. This news was delivered more than two years after President Abraham Lincoln issued the Emancipation Proclamation, which declared freedom for more than three million enslaved people living in the Confederate states. This holiday celebrates freedom for all Americans and serves as the longest-running African-American holiday. 

*Rain Location – Hillside Hall Lobby

Each volunteer will get a t-shirt with the Bridgefest logo on it for volunteering their time.

Upcoming Primary Elections

The Michigan (Aug. 2nd), Wisconsin (Aug. 9), and Minnesota (Aug. 9) summer primary elections are all two months away. Now is the time to start making your plan to vote!

Start by checking if you are registered. Michigan residents can check their voter information online with the Department of State. Residents of other states can find their state verification tools on Vote411.org.

Next, ask yourself where you will be on election day. Not going to be at your permanent address? Request an absentee ballot! Michigan residents can request their ballot online. Learn how to request an absentee ballot in your state with vote.org.

Plan to be in town and ready to vote in person? Locate your polling place and the hours they will be open. Consider your schedule for that day and add your commitment to vote to your calendar so you don’t forget!

Most ballots have not yet been finalized. Keep an eye on the Student Scoop for future updates on reviewing the primary ballot in advance and helpful resources for reviewing candidates and issues in your area.


Thatcher Markham Memorial Run and Bridgefest Need Volunteer

We are proud to honor the memory of Thatcher Markham with a 5K run/walk event from Hancock to Houghton on June 17th at 7:00pm that supports the Copper Country Junior Hockey Association and Pigs ‘N Heat (Copper Country Police and Fire Relief Fund) in their missions to promote youth sports and support local fire/crime victims in the Copper Country. Thatcher’s family and our community tragically lost Thatcher at 12 years old as a victim of the 2018 Father’s Day flood in northern Houghton County. His memory has lived on through many local events and remembrances and this race is another way to make sure he is never forgotten by everyone in the Copper Country. It is also fitting that remembering Thatcher will help us with assisting local youth sports – Thatcher himself was a longtime CCJHA player – and local first-responders in their charitable work.

It takes many great volunteers to have a great event. If you can’t run/walk or aren’t up to it, but still want to help out a great cause, please email thatchermarkhammemorialrun@gmail.com to express your interest in assisting with the race. We need volunteers to help with organization prior to race day, race day, day-before registration and check-in, organizing the start and finish areas, transporting racer’s gear, helping with timing (splits), helping at the aid station, leading and sweeping the race, controlling traffic, setting up the course, etc. Even if you’re participating in the event, we still need your help. And you can still catch the parade in Houghton with most volunteer positions. Let us know what position preference you may have when emailing if any. Volunteers will need to sign a release form prior to volunteering.

If you’d like to register to run or walk, please see details at https://runsignup.com/thatchermarkhammemorialrun

Also, many volunteers are needed each year to make Bridgefest possible. Please consider signing up for a shift helping to supervise kids’ bounce houses, obstacle courses, and games on Saturday, June 18th from 12:00-7:00pm at the Kestner Waterfront Park, aka Chutes ‘N Ladders (10am setup). Please email Ryan (ratowles@mtu.edu) to volunteer if you can.

Fraternity & Sorority Life Presents… Seize the Awkward

The words “I’m fine” are used in many contexts, but when it comes to our mental health, are we truly “fine” all the time?

The national campaign “Seize the Awkward” is coming back to campus for the second year in a row huskies!

On Wednesday, March 23th, our Awkward Art Night will be held from 7:00- 9:00 PM in MUB Ballroom A. Join us as we get creative and bring awareness to mental health and help to destigmatize those conversations surrounding it.

Thursday, March 24th, the Walk Out of Darkness will be held at the John Macinnes Student Ice Arena from 7:00- 9:00 PM.

Whether you’re walking for yourself, a loved one, or a friend; you’re not alone in your journey. Campus and community resources will also be available at this walk for students to engage with.

Talking about our mental health should not be awkward. Let’s come together and show our faculty, peers, friends, and family who may be struggling that we are in their corner and support them every step of their journey. For resources and to learn more about this campaign, please check out seizetheawkward.org!
