Life on Campus

One of the best parts about attending Michigan Tech is the residential experience you’ll have. We’re not a “suitcase school”—students are around on the weekends and there are tons of opportunities to get involved, stay active, and enjoy your home away from home. And to top it off, Michigan Tech was ranked one of the best small-town colleges by

Join In

Join any of over 240 student organizations and participate, laugh, lead, and change the face of Michigan Tech and the community. Whatever you’re into, there’s likely to be a group you’ll find a home with.

Unleash Your Inner Artist (Or Musician)

More than 600 students participate in music and fine arts. No music majors here, just students who have a love for the arts and want to make it a part of their lives.

Go Greek

Greek life at Michigan Tech is a tradition—and a great way to make friends for life. Join a sorority or fraternity and achieve your potential through leadership, scholarship, and service. Over 500 students are involved in more than 20 chapters on campus.

Get Your Adventure On

Michigan Tech owns and operates Mont Ripley, our very own ski and snowboard hill, and Portage Lake Golf Course—both are just minutes from campus. Our world-class Tech Trails offer endless opportunities for hiking, mountain biking, Nordic skiing, and snowshoeing. Lake Superior is just minutes away and Michigan Tech is on the shores of the Keweenaw Waterway. Our Outdoor Adventure Program offers guided excursions, workshops, equipment rentals, and clinics.

Catch the Athletic Spirit

On the court, on the field, or on the ice, we get it done. The Michigan Tech Huskies play hard, give their all, and have a way of bringing students and the community together. Student admission to games is free! If you like to play, we have a great selection of intramural programs and club sport teams waiting for you.

Experience Tech

Sure, our students are here to study, but with so many great activities right outside their door, it’s hard not to get involved. That’s how the Experience Tech initiative got started. For $90 per semester, students get unlimited access to Mont Ripley ski and snowboard hill,  Portage Lake Golf Course, Gates Tennis Center, Department of Visual and Performing Arts events, hockey games, a day of snowshoeing through the Outdoor Adventure Program, and intramural sports.

Get involved, try something new, have fun, decompress, and make a difference!
