Table Tents are coming back!

Husky Eats and the Memorial Union Building are actively seeking alternative sustainable options to table tents for event advertising, but in the meantime, table tents are coming back.

Table tents are a low-cost advertising method to reach a large number of students, staff, and faculty with announcements about current events for groups affiliated with Michigan Tech. Table Tents are intended for the promotion of individual events, not consecutive or routine marketing.

  • It may take up to 2 business days for review and approval, please plan accordingly.
  • All table tents in each location will be recycled if there is an event that necessitates clearing the tables and every Friday.


  • Design your table tent, maximum allowed size is on 8.5” x 11” paper folded. Be sure to include your registered student organization or department name on it. University entities (not student organizations) are required to include the Equal Opportunity Tagline on all advertisements.
  • Submit your table tent for approval via email as a PDF to with ‘Table Tent’ and your organization or department name in the subject line. Please indicate which week you are requesting to display your table tent.

No More Che Day

October 9th will mark 56 years since Che Guevara was executed, bringing an end to a reign of terror by the Marxist revolutionary and international thug. Unfortunately, most students never learn the names of the innocents Che ordered in front of his firing squads or the effect his quest to establish socialism had on the people of Latin America. Instead, Che’s likeness has been idolized, and emblazoned on t-shirts, coffee mugs, and billboards.

To counter the lionizing of this cowardly killer, Young America’s Foundation works with students around the country to tell the truth about Che on the anniversary of his death. “No More Che Day” is designed to educate campuses about Che’s violent life and death, and underscore the faults of socialism.

YAF students will be tabling on DHH Lawn on October 9th from 9 a.m. to noon. In addition, we will have an informational meeting at 7 p.m. in Fisher 231.

What is ARM?
The Michigan Tech Alumni Board of Directors is thrilled to introduce ARM, a program aimed at connecting student organizations with valuable resources from our extensive alumni network.  With ARM, the Alumni Board has two paths to help fund student organizations that apply for funding support.  First, the Alumni Board still maintains our traditional budgeted contribution (formerly known as SISP) to several applied and qualified organizations, as we always have.  Second, early in 2023, we initiated a new crowd-funding path to activate the entire alumni community to donate to additional qualified and selected organizations.  With this announcement, we’re kicking off the 2nd crowd-funding campaign.

What We’re Looking For:

  • Programs that positively impact students and support the alumni mission of “Celebrating Traditions. Creating Connections.”
  • Inclusive initiatives that engage a wide audience
  • Actions that support a culture of philanthropy among students
  • Requests for knowledge or expertise in a particular area
  • Funding proposals for “capital” goods that will leave a lasting impact on the University

How to Apply:
Click here to apply.  The application deadline for the upcoming ARM crowd-funding campaign is Friday, October 13, 2023, and the crowd-funding campaign will occur from December 6-13.  Note that applications for our traditional Board-provided funding are still welcome year-round!

We are excited to see your creative ideas and impactful projects.

Warm regards,
Michigan Tech Alumni Board of Directors
