"Art classes at Michigan Tech changed my life for the better. Balancing engineering with art gave me the time to step away from technical studies, think differently, and come back with fresh eyes. It allowed me to intuitively and creatively solve problems, and express my emotions and interpretations of life. My art classes opened up many opportunities that I otherwise would not have been aware of or thought possible: showing my works in a real gallery, working hands-on with visiting artists, and participating in artist residencies. At Michigan Tech, art became and still is a major source of enjoyment in my life."Hannah Fisher, Biomedical Engineering (art minor), 2017
