Tech Theatre Presents “A Midsummer Night’s Dream”

Love abounds! Trickery and magic reveal lovers and fools. A Midsummer Night’s Dream brings together some of Shakespeare’s most memorable characters in a romantic and hilarious adventure.

Lysander loves Hermia, but Hermia loves Demetrius. The trouble is Demetrius loves Helena who believes she loves Lysander! This is what happens when a love potion gets into the wrong hands. How does it end? Happily, of course! But the mad romantic romp won’t end until magic restores the lovers’ senses. In Shakespeare’s words:

“Ay me! for aught that I could ever read,
Could ever hear by tale or history,
The course of true love never did run smooth.”

Play director Patricial Helsel describes the production, “A Midsummer Night’s Dream features actors from all across campus, as well as community and staff members. Christopher Schwartz, Lecturer in the Kinesiology and Integrative Physiology Department, plays Oberon, the King of the Fairies.  Mark Wilcox, News Writer for University Marketing and Communications joins the cast as Quince, leading the comedic troupe of artisans.

5K Run/Walk to Raise Money for the Multiple Sclerosis Society

This event is a 5k run/walk to raise money to donate to the Michigan Chapter of the Multiple Sclerosis Society. The Physical Therapy Student Organization will the hosting the event, with volunteers from Finlandia, Walgreen’s, and the Pre-PT Club at MTU assisting (approximately 40 volunteers total). Faculty advisor, Dr. Cameron Williams (willi4ct@cmich.edu), will be present during the event. The run will take place on April 14, 2018, with registration beginning at 9 am, the running event starting at 9:30 am, and the walk beginning at 9:40 am. Volunteers will inspect the course the previous evening and will be on location at approximately 7 am to begin set-up for the race. The event will conclude no later than 1:00 pm, with clean-up following the event and concluding by 2:00 pm. Volunteers will ensure all trash (empty water bottles, paper, plates, napkins, etc.) has been placed in the proper trash and recycling bins, and all tables, markers, and other equipment are removed from the starting area and the course.

There will be 3-4 tables set up (rented from Superior Rentals) for registration, t-shirt pick-up, raffle prizes, multiple sclerosis information, and post-race refreshments (bottled water, muffins, fruit, etc.). A DJ will be present, using a generator to power his equipment to provide music before the race, during the race start, and as the runners are crossing the finish line. The tables will be located on the sidewalk behind Lot 14, where the starting line of the race will be. Volunteers will be marking the course with brightly colored flags and follow the course outlined in the image below. Volunteers will be stationed at all intersections with orange shirts and stop signs to halt traffic and provide participants with directions to stay on course. Participants will be provided with a course map prior to the race.

This event involves physical activity, either running or walking on paved sidewalks or crosswalks. There is a low risk of musculoskeletal injury, such as sprains, strains, abrasions, or bruises, or other exercise-associated illnesses (heat illness, etc). Event organizers will work diligently to prevent such injuries by maintaining a clear race course, posting crossing guards at all intersections, and monitoring participants during the event. All PTSO volunteers are CPR/AED certified, and have completed Blood Borne Pathogen training. There will be a certified athletic trainer covering the event, and there are several other volunteers with first aid training. These volunteers will be spread out along the race course and placed at the starting/finishing line to assist runners. EMS services have also been requested for the event. Prior to the event, participants will be required to sign a liability waver.

In the event that an injury or illness occurs, these previously mentioned volunteers will provide assistance within their scope of ability. Volunteers will have radios to contact EMS or the athletic trainer for assistance with more serious injury or illness. If a serious emergency occurs, EMS will be activated (911 will be called and EMS will be flagged down).

The event will conclude no later than 1:00 pm, with clean-up following the event and concluding by 2:00 pm. Volunteers will ensure all trash (empty water bottles, paper, plates, napkins, etc.) has been placed in the proper trash and recycling bins, and all tables, markers, and other equipment are removed from the starting area and the course.

There will be 3-4 tables set up (rented from Superior Rentals) for registration, t-shirt pick-up, raffle prizes, multiple sclerosis information, and post-race refreshments (bottled water, muffins, fruit, etc.). A DJ will be present, using a generator to power his equipment to provide music before the race, during the race start, and as the runners are crossing the finish line. The tables will be located on the sidewalk behind Lot 14, where the starting line of the race will be. Volunteers will be marking the course with brightly colored flags and follow the course outlined in the image below.

Prior to the event, participants will be required to sign a liability waver.

In the event that an injury or illness occurs, these previously mentioned volunteers will provide assistance within their scope of ability. Volunteers will have radios to contact EMS or the athletic trainer for assistance with more serious injury or illness. If a serious emergency occurs, EMS will be activated (911 will be called and EMS will be flagged down).

The event will be held even if inclement weather occurs, including rain or snow. However, if weather conditions pose a serious threat (lightning, heavy rain fall, dangerous temperatures, tornado, etc.), the event will be cancelled, and tickets refunded, or the event will be rescheduled for the following weekend.

Zak Ebrahim’s Story       Zak9             

“I am the son of a terrorist. Here’s how I chose peace.” If you’re raised on dogma and hate, can you choose a different path? Zak Ebrahim was just seven years old when his father helped plan the 1993 World Trade Center bombing. His story is shocking, powerful and, ultimately, inspiring. Groomed for terror, Zak Ebrahim chose a different life. The author of The Terrorist’s Son, he hopes his story will inspire others to reject a path of violence. The Rozsa Center and the Center for Diversity and Inclusion, as a part of the Van Evera Distinguished Lecture Series and the Visiting Women & Minority Lecture/Scholar Series, have partnered again to present a lecture by peace activist Zak Ebrahim, on Tuesday, April 3, at 7:30 pm, at the Rozsa Center.

At the end of the week, the big event will be featuring Kyla Lacey’s Slam Poetry in a campus Open Mic Night presented by the WHSA Coffee House.

There will be free coffee, tea, and snacks, and italian soda; plus, the first 40 people receive a free mug!

Thank you to the following departments for sponsoring Kyla Lacey and the Open Mic Night: Academic and Community Conduct, Housing and Residential Life, Center for Diversity and Inclusion, Counseling Services, Late Night Programming, Student Wellness, Institutional Equity and Inclusion, and Visiting Women and Minority Lecture/Scholar which is funded by a grant to the Office of Institutional Equity and Inclusion from the State of Michigan’s King-Chavez-Parks Initiative.

5K Run/Walk to Raise Money for the Multiple Sclerosis Society

This event is a 5k run/walk to raise money to donate to the Michigan Chapter of the Multiple Sclerosis Society. The Physical Therapy Student Organization will the hosting the event, with volunteers from Finlandia, Walgreen’s, and the Pre-PT Club at MTU assisting (approximately 40 volunteers total). Faculty advisor, Dr. Cameron Williams (willi4ct@cmich.edu), will be present during the event. The run will take place on April 14, 2018, with registration beginning at 9 am, the running event starting at 9:30 am, and the walk beginning at 9:40 am. Volunteers will inspect the course the previous evening and will be on location at approximately 7 am to begin set-up for the race. The event will conclude no later than 1:00 pm, with clean-up following the event and concluding by 2:00 pm. Volunteers will ensure all trash (empty water bottles, paper, plates, napkins, etc.) has been placed in the proper trash and recycling bins, and all tables, markers, and other equipment are removed from the starting area and the course.

There will be 3-4 tables set up (rented from Superior Rentals) for registration, t-shirt pick-up, raffle prizes, multiple sclerosis information, and post-race refreshments (bottled water, muffins, fruit, etc.). A DJ will be present, using a generator to power his equipment to provide music before the race, during the race start, and as the runners are crossing the finish line. The tables will be located on the sidewalk behind Lot 14, where the starting line of the race will be. Volunteers will be marking the course with brightly colored flags and follow the course outlined in the image below. Volunteers will be stationed at all intersections with orange shirts and stop signs to halt traffic and provide participants with directions to stay on course. Participants will be provided with a course map prior to the race.

This event involves physical activity, either running or walking on paved sidewalks or crosswalks. There is a low risk of musculoskeletal injury, such as sprains, strains, abrasions, or bruises, or other exercise-associated illnesses (heat illness, etc). Event organizers will work diligently to prevent such injuries by maintaining a clear race course, posting crossing guards at all intersections, and monitoring participants during the event. All PTSO volunteers are CPR/AED certified, and have completed Blood Borne Pathogen training. There will be a certified athletic trainer covering the event, and there are several other volunteers with first aid training. These volunteers will be spread out along the race course and placed at the starting/finishing line to assist runners. EMS services have also been requested for the event. Prior to the event, participants will be required to sign a liability waver.

In the event that an injury or illness occurs, these previously mentioned volunteers will provide assistance within their scope of ability. Volunteers will have radios to contact EMS or the athletic trainer for assistance with more serious injury or illness. If a serious emergency occurs, EMS will be activated (911 will be called and EMS will be flagged down).

The event will be held even if inclement weather occurs, including rain or snow. However, if weather conditions pose a serious threat (lightning, heavy rain fall, dangerous temperatures, tornado, etc.), the event will be cancelled, and tickets refunded, or the event will be rescheduled for the following weekend.
