I had an amazing time here. The school is very isolated and that can be tough. If you are willing to embrace the winters, outdoor activities, and the intense school work, you will have a great experience. MTU is a winter wonderland. Every winter out door activity is at your finger tips. Hockey, down hill skiing, xc skiing, snowshoeing. I never did most of those before Tech, but I got the opportunity to at tech. I continue to do most of those to this day! The summers are second to none. MTU also has world class mountain biking (see copper harbor too). KBC is world class beer! I didn't know how good I had it up there until I moved to other parts of the country. As I mentioned before, the school work is intense. It takes a crazy/smart person to survive at tech. Right out of college, I made $50k. 8 years out, I make $90k. My civil engineering degree has given me the opportunity to live and work all over the country. MI, LA, FL, PA. My job also requires me to travel all over the country!
