Michigan Tech’s accomplishments have always been reflected in its alumni. It is only fitting, then, to celebrate that legacy with a distinctive campus mall – Alumni Way.
An Alumni Association–led effort is underway to fund Alumni Way entirely through private contributions from alumni and friends.
For many of our alumni, the walk on campus elicits clear memories.
With Alumni Way, you can remember those best of times permanently, on behalf of yourself, your family, your mentors, and/or your graduating class.
Celebrating Our Heritage
The Alumni Way campus mall project unifies the east and west ends of the campus corridor to create a beautified, pedestrian-friendly environment.
The newly established Rovano Plaza on the east end of campus, offers outdoor seating to study, visit, or enjoy refreshments from the Library Café. You will have a great view of the new Husky Statue, with surrounding engraved pavers, that is located across from the Library. Legacy Markers and commemorative benches will also be found in this area and will continue west on the campus.
A Bell/Clock Tower will be located at the center of the campus mall.
At the western gateway, an arch will be held aloft by two towers symbolic of mine structures and reflecting our beginnings as the Michigan Mining School. The gateway plaza will be accented by benches, seatwalls, and landscaping.
Trees, new sidewalks, and reconfigured streets and parking will round out the project.
So take a virtual stroll through the Alumni Way campus project. We invite you to participate with the Alumni Way project and create your legacy at Michigan Tech.
