Men of Delta (Mu Omega Delta)
The purpose of Men of Delta is to provide motivation and a positive social network for male students who want to be academically successful and financially stable. This program uses the professional and life experiences of Delta professors and staff to coach college men of all ages who may need support toward their academic success. We believe that academics may not be the only reasons why students walk away from their academic goals. We know that challenges outside the classroom can disrupt academic success inside the classroom and that's where we want to help.
We are accepting 20 applications for the Winter 2016 semester. Men of Delta Online Application

CMU Student Transition Enrichment Program (STEP) and Pathways to Academic Student Success Program
Transitioning to college can be challenging for most students, but it can potentially be even more trying for students who are the first in their family to attend college or who are struggling with resources to pay for their education. These important groups of students have two new programs available at CMU for help in succeeding in higher education.
Staff from the Student Transition Enrichment Program will visit once a month throughout the academic school year. Come visit us to ask your questions, learn more about CMU, talk with an advisor, and more! Each month, we will also host an educational workshop. Check out this months flyer for time and location!

The MICUP/MI–LSAMP program, coordinated by Michigan Technological University’s Center for Diversity and Inclusion, offers low-income, first-generation and underrepresented minority community college students a summer research internship and a first-hand experience of what life at a four-year institution is really like. The program teaches students how to navigate challenges and make the most of opportunities through networking and relevant research.
The internship also includes social events and recreational activities along with tutoring sessions and weekly meetings with MI-CUP directors in an effort to combine fun with the discovery of knowledge.

What were you up to this summer at Michigan Tech?
I was a part of MI-CUP, a paid-internship program in which I lived at Michigan Tech for 7 weeks. Over the course of my northern tenure, I got a chance to travel somewhere I’ve never been and get a chance to experience university life away from home. As a part of the program stipulation, I also took a drawing class and conducted research on my major of art.
What is your research about?
My research was on poster design and how to market events within a college setting.
What have you discovered about yourself, the field you are exploring, and Houghton/Michigan Tech?
I’ve discovered that although Michigan Tech in itself isn’t an art school and only has a handful of courses to offer in that field, there are ways to incorporate art in other focuses. Art is universal and while I know of how limitless the reach of art is, that fact was solidified with me after my time in the MI-CUP Program.
What did you do to wind down and relax while you were in Houghton?
For the most part, whenever I had some down time or in need of a break, I would just relax in my dorm and listen to music, watch videos, read, take a nap or simply think and gather my thoughts. Other times I would take part in colleague-planned activities such as swimming, lifting weights, playing soccer or simply hang out with everyone else at the dorm.
