31 minutes ago - I came to Michigan Tech with an open mind and a goal to reach academic excellence. I have discovered this community is welcoming and respects what is new or divine. Bridging cultures is a two-way street. I learn about life here, and people here learn about my life, too. This summer, I presented to a local cooking class. Everyone was in the middle of cooking and they all stopped what they were doing to listen to me. I spoke about culture, community, and civilization back home in India. After my presentation, the class invited me and a few others to lunch. They prepared the meal for us. It was quite an honor. I am a chemical engineering graduate student. When I first came here, I only had academics on my mind. I wanted to complete my coursework, finish, go back, and do my job. Michigan Tech has a great infrastructure, not only for academics and research, but for service, too. I am involved in 31 Backpacks and Houghton Energy Efficiency Team. I have found community service is the best way to learn and experience a new society. Interacting with people and learning new things satisfies me. Everywhere I go to present or work or talk, as soon as they hear I’m from Michigan Tech, I can feel through their behavior that they truly respect me. It is an awesome feeling. Academics. Research. Community. These things go together. Life couldn’t be more fulfilling than it is here at Michigan Tech. #mtuhumans
