Opening Reception For Noise Floor Tomorrow

Noise surrounds us. In the industrial world we are constantly bombarded with sounds, most of which we no longer even notice (the hum of compressor motors, the whine of routers, the whirr of hard drives, the roar of lawnmowers).

Noise Floor is an interactive exhibit by artist Josh Loar (VPA), focused on the pervasive noise around us, mechanical and cultural–bringing into focus sounds that we normally shut out of our conscious minds.

Join us for a reception with the artist at 5:30 p.m. tomorrow. in the Rozsa Gallery A-Space. This exhibit is free and open to the public, and will be in the Rozsa Gallery A-Space through jan. 30.

Gallery hours are 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. M-F and 11 a.m. to 8 p.m. on Saturdays. Loar, Professor of Practice in the Department of Visual and Performing Arts, is a multimedia artist and designer whose works have been featured in galleries and salons from NYC to Los Angeles, and his design and music composition has been featured in countless stage shows, films, TV programs, theme parks, concerts, and so on. He is a composer, multi-instrumentalist, producer, director, writer, painter, filmmaker, and all-around general artist type.

unnamedApply to Join the Pavlis Honors College

Are you interested in joining a community of self-motivated, independent-thinking students who take charge of their education and full advantage of all that Michigan Tech has to offer? If so, consider applying to the Pavlis Honors College’s Scholars and Leaders Programs.

All motivated and committed undergraduate students in good academic standing are invited, regardless of GPA.

The current application window will remain open until March 1 for students wishing to join the college in fall.

All scholars and leaders students take core courses, participate in an immersion experience and carry out an honors project. The Scholars and Leaders Programs offer multiple pathways for students to complete the requirements for Pavlis Honors College designation on their diplomas and transcripts as well as special recognition in the graduation program.

One pathway is the well-established Pavlis Institute for Global Technological Leadership which is designed to prepare students to become successful leaders through focused coursework and interdisciplinary, team-based project work implemented in a cross-cultural environment.

Students applying to this program should have at least three years remaining in their undergraduate degree program and be prepared to travel to one our foreign project centers the summer between their third and fourth years of study at Michigan Tech.

A second pathway is the new Peace Corps Prep program, an official partnership with the U.S. Peace Corps. This program prepares undergraduates for Peace Corps service or other cross-cultural, community-based professional work. Students gain cross-cultural and foreign language learning experience in and out of the classroom. They also gain first-hand experience in a prominent sector of community development work, such as health, education or environment. The Peace Corps Prep program emphasizes establishing strong cross-cultural professional partnerships and developing an interdisciplinary framework for addressing pressing global problems such as climate change, sanitation, childhood malnutrition, girl’s education and others.

Students can customize their area of focus to fit their personal interests. Students applying to this program should have at least two years remaining in their undergraduate degree program.

Third, is the Custom Pathway Program, where students can customize their own pathway to incorporate an enterprise experience, student research, an entrepreneurial endeavor or an industrial internship, to name just a few options, to complete the Pavlis Honors College requirements.

If none of our established pathways suit your needs and interests, design your own and work with the college’s faculty and staff to realize your vision for success.

For more information, read here and attend one of the following Pavlis Honors College Information Sessions scheduled in the coming weeks. All information sessions will be held in the Pavlis Honors College Collaboration Space – Minerals and Materials Building, room 722 (facing the Portage Canal).

  • January 28 — from noon-1 p.m.
  • February 11 — from 6-7 p.m.
