First Friday Social

The Graduate Student Government invites everyone to join us and relax with the Graduate School and the GSG on the soon to be Graduate Commons, 207 East Street (Ex OAP House, opposite to the MTU Library) from 4 to 6 p.m. on Friday, September 3th, 2021.

Unwind on a Friday afternoon with your colleagues from across campus at September’s First Friday Social. Light snacks and beverages will be provided. Masks are encouraged for the event while not actively eating or drinking. Hope to see you all there!


Artists: Marianne Boruch, Russell Brakefield, Jim Brandenburg, Cindy Crosby, Monte Deignan,
Ned Gannon, Ladislav Hanka, Russell Hart, Sarah Killingsworth, Joyce Koskenmaki, and
Catherine Plank
Location: Hesterberg Hall in the College of Forest Resources and Environmental Science
building at Michigan Technological University. 566-950 Macinnes Drive, Houghton, MI 49931.
Park in Lot 18

Project Coyote and CFRES are proud to present the multimedia art exhibition, The Spirit of the
Hunt, featuring many talented artists including Michigan artists: Joyce Koskenmaki and Ladislav
Hanka. This exhibit will be open to the public from August 28th through October 17th, 2021.
There will be a reception with facilitated discussions starting at 4:30pm on Friday, September
3rd. 

Our opening event on September 3rd will feature two facilitated discussions. Dr. John
Vucetich (MTU) will lead a discussion on wolf hunts and the value of keystone species. Tanya
Aldred from Great Lakes Indian fish and wildlife commission is giving a talk called “Ma’iingan
(wolf): An Ojibway Perspective”. These discussions and the overall timing of this art exhibit was
chosen to raise awareness and consideration of current proposed legislation for wolf management
in Michigan. Multiple have recently been proposed that could impact the longevity of the wolf
population by altering the Wolf Management Advisory Council. Senate Bill 486 will require
council members to be residents of the Upper Peninsula. House Bills 5078 and 5079 amend the
requirements for council members to include more representation of conservation organizations.
The proposed changes in these three bills could significantly impact the management decisions
of the Michigan wolf population.
All pieces were generously donated by artists with the goal of inspiring coexistence between
people and the wolves and coyotes in the Great Lakes region. The exhibition of their works is
curated by Catherine Plank, a graduate student at the University of Michigan studying Ecosystem
Science and Management. She arranged the artwork to highlight the beauty and value of these
native predators.
All artworks will later be sold, and the proceeds will be donated to Project Coyote, a nonprofit
working to educate and improve the conservation of predators nationwide. Project Coyote is a
North American coalition of scientists, educators, ranchers, and citizen leaders promoting
compassionate conservation and management of native carnivores. The event itself is free and
open to the public M-F 9 am – 4 pm. We look forward to seeing you there!

The Student Scoop- August 18, 2021

Comedian Eric O’Shea

Join us on Saturday, August 21st at 9 pm in the Rosza Center for the Performing Arts.

Get ready to witness not only a comedy show but an EVENT! With over 10 million hits on YouTube, and being nominated 6-TIME Campus Activities Magazine’s “National Comedy Performer of the Year,” Eric O’Shea is one of the best! Eric’s clean wit and priceless observations take you through your embarrassing childhood and hidden everyday moments that drive you insane! This event is free and open to everyone! 


Upcoming Events

Comedian Pete Lee! Check out this Late Night Comedian on Saturday, August 28 at 10 PM in the Rozsa! 
Pete Lee might be the nicest person in New York City, but that’s because it’s impossible to sound aggressive with a Wisconsin accent. Pete was raised in Janesville, WI by divorced parents and a 19-inch television, which is probably why he pursued a career in entertainment. Thanks to his highly rated Comedy Central Presents half hour special, Pete has packed venues at over 500 colleges and universities across the country. Pete has also been a standout on The Tonight Show starring Jimmy Fallon, NBC’s Last Comic Standing, and played a doctor on the CBS soap opera As the World Turns. You won’t want to miss this event!

Welcome Week! It’s that time of year again…. Welcome Week!!  There are tons of different activities and events for all students to attend!  Try something new like Ultimate Frisbee or Broomball!  Get a free snack!  Check out a sporting event!  Whatever you are into, there is something for everyone!  Check out the full schedule HERE.

Parade of Nations is Seeking Volunteers

The Parade of Nations planning committee is seeking volunteers to help support this long standing community event. This year, the annual parade will take place on Saturday, September 18 beginning at 11 a.m. in Hancock and crossing the Portage Lift Bridge to the Chamber of Commerce in Houghton.

Volunteers are needed to help with tasks before, during, and after the parade, such as flag distribution, carrying banners and flags during the parade, and cleanup after the event. We are also seeking volunteers who have a vehicle they might be willing to drive in the parade or groups who may wish to support others in creating a float. This is an excellent opportunity to connect with your local community and to partake in a one-of-a-kind celebration of unity!

If you are interested in helping to make this year’s parade a success, please fill out this form and a Parade of Nations committee member will be in touch with you about volunteering soon.
