Student Scoop – May 10, 2023

GSG Softball League Registration Open

Sign up now to register a team or to register as an individual. Individuals without a team will be assigned a team for the season. All MTU and community members are welcome, the only stipulation is that 50% of the team is MTU students, faculty, or staff.

Registration closes at 11:59 p.m. on May 23rd. League will run from Thursday nights starting June 1st and ending on Saturday, July 29th with a picnic and playoff tournament. All are welcome to play as we will have a preseason Softball clinic and Captain’s meeting to go over the rules and techniques of softball.

K-Day Registration

Ahoy there! Are you ready to set sail? If so, then it’s time to grab your captain’s hat because K-Day Registration is officially open!

Reserve your spot now! Space and resources are limited, so do not delay!  This year’s theme will have you sailing around at K-Day!  Organizations can get creative with this nautical-themed student organization fair!

K-Day, or Keweenaw Day, is an annual tradition that will be held on Friday, September 8 beginning at noon. Students head to Chassell Centennial Park for an afternoon of food, fun, and music – it’s like a day out at sea!  K-day typically sees 3000-4000 students so this is an important recruitment opportunity for your organization.  Please have your organization’s event finalized before registering HERE.  

Keep in mind, the person you list as the primary contact for your organization’s registration will be the one receiving all communications.  They will need to keep an eye out for emails during the summer, in case of any changes that are made to K-Day due to any updates we may need to make.

Questions about K-Day can be directed to Leah Joy at rso@mtu or call 906-487-1963.
