At Michigan Tech, our student athletes are smart. Really smart. And there’s nothing quite like watching a bunch of really smart kids kick butt on the basketball court. And the soccer field. And the ski trail. And . . . well, you get the picture.
At Michigan Tech, varsity athletics is marked by a strong tradition of success and characterized by student athletes who understand that commitment, community, and spirit are every bit as important as a winning score. Our Huskies compete in NCAA Division I men’s hockey, and in numerous other Division II sports. And don’t forget—students receive free admission to all athletic events, giving you plenty of opportunities to cheer your Huskies to victory!
Our teams have spirit, and they have fun—but they also have results. During the 2011–2012 season . . .
- Members of the women's Nordic ski team placed in the top ten at the US Junior National Championships.
- The men's basketball team took the GLIAC North division title
- The women’s basketball team, which spent a large part of the season ranked number one, finished with perhaps an even more important number one: collectively, team members sported an average GPA of 3.547 earning them a spot in the top ten highest GPAs in the country.

Even outside of varsity athletics, our students are all about adventure, fun, and competition . . . and nowhere is that more true than in our IM programs.
We offer individual and team intramural sports throughout the year. Fall sports include basketball, water polo, softball, ultimate Frisbee, disc golf, riflery, and wallyball—volleyball in a racquetball court. Spring sports include floor hockey, dodgeball, soccer, table tennis, billiards tournament, and a swim meet.
Thanks to the Experience Tech initiative, you’ll have unlimited access to intramural sports.
