Michigan Tech Alumni Provide Useful Feedback

Alumni Association logoIn a recent survey, more than 3,000 Michigan Tech alumni shared their views on current Alumni Association programming and how the organization can provide additional opportunities for engagement.

Each completed survey generated a $5.00 donation to the Alumni Association’s Student Initiative Funding program which provides financial support for student organizations.  In the past two years, Blue Key, Pep Band, MTSF-Oozeball, Women’s Leadership Council, Keweenaw Pride, Advanced Motor Sports (AMS) Enterprise  LeaderShape, among others, have received funding from this program.  The fund now has $15,055 available to support worthwhile student initiatives.

Survey participants also had the opportunity to enter into a draw for an iPad mini™. The lucky winners were Tricia Sebes ’96, Melanie Nizzola ’04, Scott Thayer ’90 and Christina Kionka ’72.
  • A summary of the survey results will be posted on our website ( in mid-February.
