A Sneak Peak at the 2016-2017 Rozsa VPA Arts Season

We have come to the close of another arts season at the Rozsa Center for the Performing Arts. Thank you to everyone who joined us and made it a success.

So much was new this year from the World Without Ice climate change meditation/film/sound installation exhibit in McArdle Theatre to the cutting-edge new Project Learning Lab experimental art space in the Rozsa gallery b. From the beautiful collaboration of the Minnesota Ballet’s Nutcracker with the Keweenaw Symphony Orchestra, with new discount Family Ticket Packages that brought so many more families out to enjoy a night at the theater, to the wildly interactive adventure “Intergalactic Nemesis: Target Earth” live-action graphic novel. It was a vibrant, thoughtful and above all, enjoyable season.
We are now in the process of gearing up for the 2016-2017 Rozsa Visual and Performing Arts season and here is a taste of what we have in store.

More details and so many more events are coming soon. Hope to see you here next season.

Attention Student Organizations: Summer Youth Expo Scheduled for June 21 and June 28

During the weeks of June 19-25 and June 26-July 2, Summer Youth Programs will be hosting several major scholarship summer camps: Women in Engineering (WIE), Engineering Scholars Program (ESP), and Women in Computer Science (WICS).  As part of these camps, we host an expo about all things Michigan Tech.  This expo includes representatives from many student organizations, campus departments, Enterprise teams, and club sports.

The purpose of the “Tech Expo” is to give these bright students a feeling of what life is like at Michigan Tech.  All of the participants have applied and been accepted to the program based on academic performance, extracurricular activities, and teacher recommendations — they are very driven and interesting young people! WIE and WICS are entirely female camps (a total of around 180 women), and ESP welcome 150 students (both male and female).

Dates:  Tuesday. June 21 and Tuesday. June 28

Times: Both Expos are from 4 – 5 PM

Location:  MUB Ballroom

If you or someone else in your organization is here for the summer and would be interested in hosting a booth, please mark the date! Last year we hosted several dozen tables, and we are striving to make this year’s Expo the best yet!  If you have any questions about the event or our programs, please feel welcome to contact Jannah Brandt (jrbrandt@mtu.edu).

More information, including a registration form, will be sent out closer to the time.  For now, please mark these two dates.  We look forward to hosting another spectacular expo!  Please feel welcome to let me know if you have questions.
