What is your overall opinion of this school?

Michigan Tech is very hard academically, but very rewarding in the future. The job placement rate is unbelievably high, and the professors know what they're teaching inside and out. I wouldn't trade my school for any other, and the community is one that you can't find anywhere else in the world!

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Michigan Technological University may appear to be off the face of the Earth, but going to the "isolated" campus in the Keewenaw Peninsula is worth it. Michigan Tech isn't as big as Michigan State University or the University of Michigan, but it is still large enough to present a friendly and engaging campus to students and professors alike. At the same time, it is also small enough to feel like a small town of its own, and not a city like U of M. The student population and faculty are always engaging in a variety of extracurricular activities, clubs, student government positions, sports, and research alike, as Michigan Tech always as opportunities available for the entire campus to partake and enjoy. With the biennial Career Fair that takes place directly on campus, Michigan Technological University also provides a vast variety of companies that students can approach for an internship or post-graduate job. With all the resources and academic programs provided, attending Michigan Technological University is both highly recommended and worth every penny.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I listed myself as a visitor, as I have visited campus and will soon be a student. I am so excited for this coming fall when I will finally be an official Husky, and I think many other visitors to Michigan Tech feel the same way. I cannot describe enough how amazing I feel this school truly is.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

My experience at Michigan Technological University has been mostly positive. The strong academic culture and the opportunities for career growth are some of the largest positives of this school. However, the cold winters are often difficult to deal with for residents of the more distant dorms such as McNair, and the social culture is lacking in some areas.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

All the students here are huge nerds and gamers. They are also extremely unfriendly and antisocial, don’t expect to make any friends. Normal people are hard to come by. Classes are ungodly hard, which leaves 0 free time to explore the area. There are 2 things every Tech student has in common, we are all crazy book smart and we all drink. Party’s never get busted. MIP’s are not handed out on campus. You can get pulled over going 25 over and get off with a verbal warning. Cops here don’t care at all, neither does the university or RA’s. Alcohol is allowed in the dorms. There are no girls. The 3-1 ratio is a lie, it’s more like 20-1. Perfect for smart, alcoholic, gay gamers and if you’re not that you will be by the time you graduate.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I overall love the school and the overall culture. I feel very welcome on campus. The classes are challenging but also very manageable, even when one is taking 17 credits and participating in extra curricular activities. I feel very at home on campus and all the faculty are very helpful and willing to aid with any issue or question brought to them.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Michigan Technological University is a great place. I am definitely glad I came here over schools like University on Michigan and Michigan State. Here academics is definitely the most important thing. But there is also tons of other things to get involved in and had fun.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

It's a great place with good academics and plenty of outdoor activities to explore. Heck, it even has a ski hill on campus! We have a golf course and a shooting range, so whatever hobbies you're into, we've got it. I'm personally on the ultimate frisbee team, which is a lot of fun.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

It's hard, but it's fun. There are an unlimited amount of clubs, (not really, but it feels like it.) You have to be crazy and smart to be there, and maybe crazy smart. Everyone is friendly and pushes you to do your best, even if they drink or do drugs. When I applied, I knew this was my dream school, and it has not failed to deliver.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

A great university for academics and outdoor adventures. Leave the city downstate and enjoy the upper peninsula. A great school for engineering, one of the top in the nation. A nice small town with lots of history and character. Housing could be better but does not degrade the experience
