Three Minute Thesis (3MT) Event

3MT, Three Minute Thesis

Community

Three Minute Thesis

NMU began its annual participation in the Three Minute Thesis (3MT) competition in 2018 and continues to expand its programming. Each year, NMU students will compete for recognition, prizes, and a spot in the regional competition. Three Minute Thesis was developed by The University of Queensland (UQ) in 2008. "3MT cultivates students’ academic, presentation, and research communication skills. The competition supports their capacity to effectively explain their research in three minutes, in a language appropriate to a non-specialist audience."

Each candidate is limited to three minutes and one static PowerPoint slide to aid in the presentation of their thesis research. Students must be actively enrolled in a graduate program and must present original research.

This year's Three Minute Thesis (3MT) competition will be held on Tuesday, February 20th, 2024 in the  Northern Center Ballroom IV from 3pm-5pm.

Skerryvore Returns to NMU

5 male musicians playing various instruments on a stage

Community

By popular demand, the Beaumier Heritage Concert Series will be bringing the Scottish folk-rock group, Skerryvore, back to Northern Michigan University. Skerryvore will be playing Thursday, March 14 at 7:30 p.m. in Forest Roberts Theatre. This concert is also part of the annual Winter Roots Festival, which is co-sponsored by the Beaumier U.P. Heritage Center, Hiawatha Traditional Music Festival, and the Ore Dock Brewing Company. Tickets for the concert are available at the Berry Center ticket office or online at nmu.universitytickets.com. 

Ticket prices: General Public - $20 advance/$22 door; NMU Students and under 18 - $10 advance/$12 door. 


What is Skerryvore? They’re like no one else. Epic of melody, intimate of feeling, and plugged into the roots of Scotland but blasting out to the world. 

Three-time winners of Scotland’s ‘Live Act of the Year’ award, Skerryvore have evolved from their humble beginnings to become one of the country’s leading forces in a thriving live music scene. At the forefront of a movement that has reinvented and reignited a traditional Scottish scene for a modern, multicultural audience, the band has brought their high-energy performances to audiences across the globe. From their early days in Scottish West Coast halls and bars to festival crowds in the USA, Canada, Australia, and throughout the UK and Europe, Skerryvore’s wide range of influences and talent produce a musically expansive, immersive yet intimate set that excites and captivates audiences.

With a mix of bagpipes, fiddles, accordions, and whistles, alongside guitar and vocals, underpinned by driving bass, drums, and keys, Skerryvore represents the best in contemporary Scottish traditional music. Their now 7 studio albums demonstrate the wide range of influences the individual musicians bring to the mix – a unique fusion of folk, trad, pop, and rock.

Three singles from the latest album ‘Tempus’, released in April 2023, all featured on the BBC Radio 2 new music playlist, and the album went to number 1 in both the Official Scottish Album and UK Folk Albums charts and entered the top 40 in the Official UK Charts. Skerryvore took their Tempus Tour to audiences across the UK, Europe, and the USA, with their unique fusion appealing to a wider mix of age groups and tastes.


“Skerryvore have crafted a world beating fusion, which takes pride in their heritage and above all else is a pure joy to listen to.” – Folk Radio UK 

“The highest rated show we have ever had on our post-concert surveys… people LOVED the show.” – Anchorage Concert Association, ALASKA 

“Such a fresh, real, new sound… I love it” – Jeremy Vine, BBC Radio 2 UK 

“Skerryvore has evolved to become one of Scotland’s greatest musical exports.” – Wickham Festival, ENGLAND
