I couldn't resist posting this [19 May 2009|04:29pm]

From FMyLife:

Today, I was feeling rebellious, I decided to procrastinate instead of studying for my really important English test tomorrow. I was having a pretty good time until I realized my idea of procrastinating was cleaning my TI-83 graphing calculator with rubbing alcohol and Q-tips. FML

Just seems like a very Butcher thing to do :P

I was doing my bio homework and I came across this sentence:
"While other materials contract when they solidify, water expands."

And it reminded me of Sophomore year research and how Supal kept asking why ice could crack cement...

Is there anyone in High School in this? [09 Dec 2008|12:51pm]

ok, so I know it's been ages since anybody thought about this group, let alone posted in it
BUT I COME BEARING SOMETHING USEFUL!! (for the seniors/alumni at least)

no really...


It's a free online integration tool.
I just saw it and thought about this group and I thought it might be of use to someone.
Happy Integrating.
And remember, never drink and derive

happy mole day and happy chemistry week everyone!!!

remember, if you're not part of the solution, you are part of the precipitate! (<posted all over campus =D)

Some of you may be in Butcher these days going, why the hell am I doing this to myself. The lessons are tough, the demands difficult and the homework ridiculous. But trust me, hold on. I probably was in the bottom percentile of the Butcher class (note: even the bottom percentile was still a 3.5 average) but none the less, I was near quitting time and time again, so I feel it necessary to post this one piece of advice. HANG IN THERE. I know it can get challenging and overwhelming, but surprise surprise, it becomes handy.

I'm in a Chemistry class where no one has ever written a lab report. I'm in a math class where we spent the first 3 days reviewing common denominators.

As a freshman of MSU, I'm just telling you guys, hang in there. Because as much as I'd hate to admit it a year ago, this stuff will come back to you.

Good luck guys :)

Senior Physics Research [18 Jun 2007|11:00am]

[ mood | annoyed ]

My partner and I already talked to McMillan about starting Senior Research over the summer, and he told us to hold off on starting it.  He plans on talking to the IDS and Math teachers and perhaps starting a common theme to physics research this year.

Just a forewarning, so you don't have to do everything over again.

Ok everyone, I need you help. So complete this sentance.

You know you go to MMSTC when...

Have fun.

Visiting Tech [05 Apr 2007|09:24am]

If you are planning on visiting tech this weekend (and I don't know who of you are) this would both be the best weekend and the worst.

Best: It is acting like the weather we get all winter. So it is more like the Tech most people talk about when they talk about snow.

Worst: You don't get to see the wonders that campus has, you get to see the campus up in a fury, you don't get to do a proper tour, and driving up here is not safe.

So please, although I would love to advertise for my school, if you are planning to come up to visit this weekend, (I don't know why someone would visit on Easter Weekend...) check the weather.

I wish all people to be safe.

The same applies to those wishing to check out NMU or LSSU. Please be safe and be careful.

With MUCH regard for life,

P.S. I also wanted to brag about our snow. ^_^ I've seen a drift three feet high.

Out of curiosity, what science do the afternoon kids plan to take next year?

MTU has a Snow day. [02 Mar 2007|08:35am]

This is a once in a lifetime event.

All you butcher kids that had your wind chill day. And your snow day. you haven't seen anything yet until you see Michigan Technological University close.

And today it did.

For all of you who don't know where MTU is located. Google Map Houghton, Michigan.

We are used to snow. We are used to snow drifts taller than us. We are also used to giant yellow construction equiptment clearing off campus. But today the county cannot clear all the roads. I heard the beeping of the construction equiptment clearing off areas around my dorm. (They ususally get to around my dorm at 5 in the morning, they only recently got here... its almost 9)

This hasn't happened in over 20 years.

I would also like to make a reccomendation about places that you look to go to college. Check out their weather patterns. If you really HATE snow and don't think you could ever get used to it. I'd suggest not going to anywhere in Wisconsin, Minnesota or the U.P.

Thank you all.

4 factor DOE question:

When we do the two factor interactions part of the DOE, what exactly does it tell us?  I'm working on the lab report and I completely blanked out on what it is even there for, obviously they are important, but I do not know what the graph and effect say about the factors.

getting more scholarship money through threats [22 Feb 2007|05:28pm]

[ mood | don't want to end up in Dallas ]

Hi. As a senior, I'm probably not the only one freaking out about finances. I've been accepted to U of M and I would love to go there. (I could elaborate, but you don't need to hear it, I'm sure.) The only thing keeping me from being absolutely positive it's where I'm going to go is scholarship money-- or lack thereof. They haven't offered me anything, and I really can't afford $20,000 a year despite what the FAFSA says. Here's the thing: I know I have the credentials. As of today I've been offered full rides to the University of Oklahoma, the University of Texas at Dallas and now Alma College-- and I haven't even applied to any of them. Part of me wants to just go up to Ann Arbor and throw a hissy fit and say "I'm a National Merit Finalist, pay attention to me!" and start to cry. I don't think it'll work so well, though.

So the next step is emailing them.

1) Who do I email? The department of financial aid, or the admissions office?

and 2) How does this sound?

To whom it may concern:
As of February 22, I have not received any notice of financial aid. The University of Michigan is my dream school-- great academics in a diverse atmosphere, set in the wonderful town of Ann Arbor. However, if I do not receive any financial aid, I cannot afford to attend the university. As a National Merit Finalist with a 32 ACT composite, I have been inundated with offers for fully paid tuition and room and board. I believe these qualities, along with the merit shown in managing both a general high school and a highly selective math, science and technology high school (the Macomb Mathematics Science Technology Center in Warren, MI,) show I have the drive and determination necessary to make a difference in the world. I am the kind of student the University of Michigan is seeking.

Please let me know if I am simply acting prematurely, or if I will have to accept an offer from another college solely due to financial reasons.

Too braggy? Not enough? Does it emphasize how much I want to go there? Any glaring grammatical errors? Or am I good to send it off to whoever gets it?

Thanks- I realize this was rather lengthy, but I really appreciate it.

That time of year! [20 Feb 2007|03:45pm]

Greetings one and all from the cold wintery north.

Yes I'm saying "Hi" from Michigan Tech.

As many of the seniors anxiously awake early April when all the private colleges and pretending to be private universities to respond to their application, most of the juniors should be looking into schools.

And now enter some shameless advertising for Michigan Technological University.

The advertisementCollapse )

Hey to any people not looking at Tech, feel free to ask me any questions about anything in general college life. I'm will to answer ANYTHING pertaining to life at college as I know it.

Not that long ago I had posted an entry about things that could be helpful for college.


Time for some more awesome advertising for Tech.

cut because these are pictures the last one is VERY detailedCollapse )

So that's my deal. I know... advertising. But they are all behind cuts.

Have fun! Enjoy life! And most of all, don't stress yourself out too badly yet. ^_^
