With lessened restrictions due to lower COVID-19 numbers in the Keweenaw, Keweenaw Day returns to Chassell’s Centennial Park this Friday. For those unaware, Keweenaw Day (or K-Day) is where student organizations gather to discuss their groups and speak to the student body. It’s also a day to celebrate the outdoor wonders and activities offered on campus. For the event itself, it’s a way for people to easily get involved with groups on campus, some of which offer free merchandise or food!
Michigan Tech has over 200 registered student organizations, with several new ones forming each year. Almost every interest is represented, from board games to rowing, theme park engineering to economics, even fishing and mushing dog sleds! If there’s a club you feel should exist, you can register at Involvement Link, gather ten prospective members and a faculty advisor, and complete the necessary paperwork. In the meantime, you can attend events like K-Day to understand how these clubs function.
The Lode will also be attending K-Day. Stop by to chat with our editors and writers about our newspaper and student organization. At the Lode booth, you’ll also have the chance to take home a K-Day memory in the form of a photograph with our Polaroid photo booth!
Celebrate K-Day at Chassell Centennial Park on Friday, Sep. 10 from 12 to 2 p.m. For more information about student organizations, Involvement Link connects students directly to the organizations. Make sure to get out and enjoy this beautiful peninsula that we are lucky enough to call home, and if you get the chance, stop by our booth on K-Day!
