Attention all Registered Student Organizations!

If your organization has not yet updated its officers on Involvement Link, it’s time to take action. Failing to do so may result in training being allocated to the wrong individuals during the re-registration process, affecting your budget if finished late.

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.
