Most Helpful Review for Michigan Technological University

Michigan Tech has a reputation of being a tough school and it's reputation is well earned. Every class I've taken has been a challenge but nothing too extreme. The university takes academic dishonestly very seriously and strives to ensure that every grade is well earned and up to snuff with what's demanded in the real world. Despite all of this, it was an easy transition from high school. Michigan Tech has dedicated learning centers for each field of study, staffed with students who know the material backwards and forwards. There's always someone to help you with something. The biggest mistake...

    Michigan Tech is a fantastic school for any nerdy, snow-loving, future engineer. The medium size allows you to connect personally with professors but also access resources not found at smaller schools. The academics are challenging but will amply prepare you for a job in the real world.

    The campus, despite being freakishly far away from any major city or sign of civilization, is beautiful and every experience I have had in the community has been a good one.

    Easily one of the best engineering schools in the nation. However, even though they do have good facilities for other majors, if you're not an engineering major then you're going to constantly be in the background to the university. Don't let that sway you from coming her though, this is an excellent school.

    This place is Awful. Houghton will kill your soul and Michigan Tech will put your social life in a freezer. This school is neither elite, nor worth attending.

    Michigan Technological University is filled with opportunities to strengthen every individual who wants work hard for their degree. A research institute that has such strong bonds with companies, that they will come back to a career fair held up at the tip top of Michigan's borders, tells the story of how much industry believes in this University. The faculty inspires the future here at Tech, but they really inspire their students to become the future, and this University gives all students the opportunity to experience industry, research, and to build leadership skills and be the future.

    If you don't mind the snow and like a less crowded environment then this school would be great for you. The campus is not too large and doesn't take too long to get from one side to the other. This university is a lot of fun specially if you participate in the winter activities such as Winter Carnival while the classes are still intelligent and help is readily available at the many help centers.
