Spring 2012 Michigan Tech Magazine

  • New on Campus

    Fresh programs and places enhance Tech academics and quality of life.
    Go outside and play! As great as the great outdoors may be, plenty of Tech students never got to enjoy it. The Outdoor Adventure Program changed all that in 2006. Now students (and other people, for that matter) can rent all manner of outdoor equipment, from mountain bikes to sleeping bags to kayaks, at affordable prices. Students can also take advantage of low-cost canoe trips, snowshoe hikes, and more.
