Students paddling a cardboard boat

Life at Tech

Think Michigan Tech is all study hard and no fun? Nope. Actually, Huskies know how to have a great time. The campus is located on Michigan’s most beautiful playground—the Upper Peninsula—and borders the Keweenaw Waterway which connects to Lake Superior. Huskies spend a lot of time outside exploring, skiing, swimming, hiking, biking, and even dogsledding.

Favorite student activities include:

  • Broomball and ice bowling—you have to see it to believe it.
  • Playing along with the world-famous, one-of-a-kind Huskies Pep Band.
  • Designing, duct-taping, and racing 50+ cardboard boats.
  • Building world-record snowballs and snow statues during Winter Carnival (The Weather Channel comes up to cover the fun.)
  • Checking out the Northern Lights (shimmering light shows are right outside your door.)
