“I plan to become a project manager at a company involved in architecture, real estate development, construction, or software development. My favorite MTU experience so far was during Orientation Week when my roommate and I went hiking at Lake of the Clouds. It was a great bonding experience for us, and I was also able to explore new parts of the Upper Peninsula.”

“My favorite college experience so far has been meeting some of my best friends right in my hall. Michigan Tech puts a lot of effort into making campus feel like a community. I love it here! After earning a bachelor's degree in accounting, I plan to head to a city like Chicago or NYC.”

"I came to Michigan Tech needing a fresh start. As a first-generation college student, I didn't have a network to help me learn about college life. But in my first year on campus, I have found amazing people I'm glad to call my friends. They have helped me become a better student, a better friend, and the best person I can be."

Marketing and Management Dual Major

Women's Rugby Club, American Marketing Association, Impact Scholar

"After I earn my bachelor’s degree from Michigan Tech, I plan on completing the accelerated TechMBA® program. Ultimately, I would love to be in charge of marketing operations for a company and possibly specialize in social media marketing.
I chose Michigan Tech because of the strong sense of community and the strong academics. I knew MTU was the right campus for me and I am so happy to be able to call Houghton my second home.

My favorite MTU memories so far are all of the winter activities—playing on a broomball team with my Rugby Club and looking at statues during Carnival."

Accounting Major

Delta Zeta National Sorority, Order of Omega, Young Women Leadership Program, MUB Board, teaching assistant, Orientation Team Leader 

"I chose MTU because of the environment and community. I love that it is in the UP, and there is so much to do. I also enjoy the fact that campus is mid-sized, and allows me to get to know people better along with connecting with classmates and professors.

My favorite memories revolve around Winter Carnival. I was in charge of my sorority's month-long statue once and we took second place in the Co-Ed division. I also love all the memories I made from participating in Stage Revue, human dog sled races, and ice bowling. After graduation, I am still unsure of what exactly I would like to do, but I know I want to be in an accounting position that allows me to help others."

Management Information Systems Major

SENSE Enterprise, Sustainable Van Conversion Project, Swing Club, Leading Scholar

"One of my favorite Michigan Tech memories is when my friends and I went sledding during a snow day my first year and we created a bunch of different snow slides and even a snow tunnel to slide through! It was a blast to play around in the snow as if we were little kids again.

It sounds cheesy, but I chose MTU because it felt the most like home.

My long-term goal includes a career in an area of interest, possibly: brand management, entrepreneurship, mental health, naval research, a non-profit, real estate, and/or research and development."

"As my journey continues at Michigan Tech, I have been blessed to have multiple opportunities  including internships, co-ops, and student leadership experiences. During the summer following my first year, I was a production supervisor at General Motors’ Heavy Duty Truck Plant in Flint, Michigan. I love the pressure of building automobiles! In fall 2020, I headed back to Flint, working as a quality operations supervisor for the new 2021 T1 Heavy Duty trucks."
