Colors Fly for Annual Pride Week
Michigan Tech’s 15th annual Pride Week is March 18-23. Events as diverse as the community they celebrate are planned. They range from a film to a conversation with a sexologist, a speaker who will talk about being black and gay in America, swing and salsa dance lessons, and the 13th annual Drag Show.
All events are free (unless otherwise noted), and all are open to the public.

Earth Week 2013
If you are looking for an opportunity to help out in the community, please consider the following two events hosted by the Center for Pre-College Outreach. We are in need of a few more volunteers. The first one is on Monday, March 25 in the Wood Gym of the SDC. Our annual TiViTz tournament brings 4th-7th graders to campus to play a tournament of the math game TiViTz. We need 6 more people willing to help with scorekeeping and generally making sure the event runs smoothly. The tournament runs from 9:00 AM – 12:30 PM and you can come for whatever amount of time you are able. Lunch is provided!
The very next day, Tuesday, March 26, is Get WISE — Get Women in Science and Engineering. Get WISE hosts about 200 7th and 8th grade girls for several engineering challenges like making little airplanes that stay in the air as long as possible or bridges that hold the most weight. It’s a great event! Get WISE runs from 9:00 AM – 1:30 PM in the Wood Gym and you can come for whatever amount of time you are able. We are looking for 1 0r more volunteers. Lunch is included at this one, too! There will also be a training session on the Monday evening beforehand.
To sign up for either or both of these events, just fill out this form. For more information contact Liz Fujita at email@example.com
