Welcome to the Michigan Tech Family!
As president of Michigan Technological University, I am delighted to welcome you and your student to the Huskies community. From the hometown feel of Houghton to the close-knit campus community, we hope your student will quickly become a part of the Tech family, finding their niche in which to thrive.
At Michigan Tech, we place great value on student success in and out of the classroom, and we know that parents, guardians, and family members play a vital role in supporting their student throughout the university experience. With the extensive academic, professional, and extra-curricular opportunities provided on campus, students are able to explore new interests, solidify existing passions, and take part in activities that promote a promising future.
As a parent, guardian, or family member, you are an advocate for your student and should encourage them to take advantage of the many opportunities available here at Michigan Tech. By becoming an informed partner, equipped with some basic knowledge of campus resources, events, and policies, you will be able to coach your student toward success.
That is exactly why we have designed this resource especially for you. I invite you to read the Parent and Family Handbook and discuss it with your student. Communicating with your student is integral in promoting their growth. Our partnership can help ensure their success.
We are excited your student has chosen to attend Michigan Tech, and I wish you both the best during their transition to university life.
