“Michigan Tech is the best kept secret in Michigan!”
We’ve heard that a few times. A lot of times. But, with the largest incoming first-year class in Michigan Tech history, maybe we’re not such a big secret after all.
Actually, we do get a lot of great press, and having a lot of great stories to tell never hurts.
You can catch our press through our social channels (see the last edition of TechAlum), and on our new News Site but in case you missed it, here is some of the good news about Michigan Tech that’s been read and seen around the world.
