Xxtraordinary Women of Michigan Tech

No question, there are plenty of xy chromosome pairs on Michigan Tech’s campus. But don’t underestimate the more than 1,700 women who come to Michigan Tech and love everything about it. They’re crazy smart—and really nice. Who knows, they might just become the best friends of your life!

As an accepted female student, we know having a group of girls to hang out with, talk to, and study with is important—and is a big part of your college decision. Rest assured, most of our students come to Michigan Tech without knowing people here from high school. Get a head start on meeting some of the extraordinary women of Michigan Tech!
