Schedule of Events

DEALING WITH COVID-19 -

  • Sick/Symptomatic
    We ask that anyone that is feeling ill/symptomatic hold off from attending the reunion. Refunds are available.

  • Bring face coverings / masks.
    Presently this is required by the State of Michigan when visiting any indoor business. 
    Wearing masks will be each individual's responsibility as we visit indoor facilities. Evaluate your surroundings and adapt/respond accordingly. Especially if you are wearing DU letters and representing us in the local community.

  • Please do not visit the MTU Campus without first reviewing the University guidelines (https://www.mtu.edu/flex/operations/levels/).  As of August 05, the university is at a Level Three status which means "Visitors must fill out symptom tracking form and follow campus protocols". The link above has all information for this.

  • Copper Country Cruise

    • Each bus will be limited to 30 passengers (half capacity) and masks will be optional, however, they are recommended.

    • Wash hands often throughout the day. We will have hand sanitizer and wipes available on each bus.

  • *** Requirements subject to change given current State, Local and University guidelines. ***
