@MTUCarnival March 13


My daily post theme for 2017 is on Colleges and Universities.

The plan for starting my blog back in 2014 was at the urging of fellow coaching colleagues to share posts on leadership and/or motivation. Somehow that idea got derailed and  turned into daily posts on one theme for an entire year.

In 2014 my daily posts were on the “Beer of the Day”, 2015 it was “A Friend of a Friend”, 2016 I wrote about “North Carolina”, and for 2017 I will focus on “Colleges and Universities”.

I have been associated with colleges since I was 18 and I love them. I have coached/worked at four different universities and in my professional and personal travels visited 100’s more. Each college has something in its history that I want to share that to me make it unique or personal.

Name of University: Michigan Tech

Location: Houghton MI

On Sunday March 11th the campus of UNC Pembroke received a dusting of snow.

March Snow UNCP

Any amount of snow is unusual in southeastern NC but snow in March after the azaleas, dogwoods, and daffodils have bloomed is really rare.

I got thinking about what campus really gets socked with snow each year. I guessed Syracuse but they were just second tied with SUNY Osewgo. Topping the charts as the snowiest university in the U.S., located in Houghton, Mich., along Portage Lake, Michigan Technological University receives almost 200 inches of snow every year.

MTSU

However, there have been many years in which the school has exceeded this; in the winter of 2000-2001, the university received nearly 303 inches of snow.

For Michigan Tech students, alumni, and friends the region’s prodigious snowfall is a point of pride and a rite of passage. Every Husky has at least one great snow story, from digging out the wrong car in the parking lot after a blizzard to somehow making it to class during an epic whiteout.

The record-high seasonal total—a whopping 355.90 inches—came in the winter of 1978–79. The least amount of snowfall, in the winter of 1930–31, is 81.30 inches. For the current year Michigan Tech has only seen 175 inches of snow.

The campus has a winter carnival with snow sculptures.
