WHAT I LIKED

Michigan Tech is a tight-knit environment of like-minded individuals, making it easy to fit in and feel welcome. The academics are rigorous, but that's how you know you're getting a good education.

WHAT I didn’t LIKE

My only complaints are that the residence halls are super hot (bring a fan) and some of the food served in the Wadsworth dining hall is fairly average.

WHAT I LIKED

The community of Michigan Tech is a small but mighty group of individuals. There are many people who are willing to be part of a friend group, student organization, or study partner.

WHAT I didn’t LIKE

It is a really really cold campus. If you are not too fond of the cold, Tech would not be the best consideration.

WHAT I LIKED

The location is super unique in the far north of the upper peninsula of Michigan

WHAT I didn’t LIKE

It is far from a lot of civilization and social life can be lacking at times.
