The Class Tribute program offers you the opportunity to publicly recognize and honor someone who has played a special role in your life and in your Michigan Tech education, while supporting student scholarships. Proceeds from the Class Tribute program fund a scholarship for an incoming student in the fall.

Class Tributes

A tribute is a great way to say thanks to

  • mom and dad,
  • grandparents,
  • a spouse,
  • a favorite professor or advisor,
  • a good friend or roommate,
  • a campus student group, or
  • someone else who has had an impact on your time at Tech.

For $15, you can have a person or group, and your tribute to them, printed in the commencement program. The program becomes a keepsake for both you and those recognized, and all proceeds from the program are used to support  scholarships for incoming students. Spring graduates will also have their tributes (along with a photo if they choose) displayed on the ice arena's video scoreboard.
