"My favorite memory at Michigan Tech was during Winter Carnival when I was building a snow sculpture. It was dark outside and pretty cold, but students were laughing, cheering on the broomball teams, and putting their creativity to use on the amazing sculptures. It made campus seem like one big family reunion, and it made me realize how awesome of an opportunity it is to go to Tech. While receiving one of the best educations possible, I'm also making friends that will last a lifetime."
