    Great Idea!!!!! I’d love to see the arena with the Michigan Tech Sports logo also.
    How about a great pic of the ME-EM with the clock-tower also?

    Yay! I’ve been looking for a Zoom background.
    The sunset lift bridge pic will work great.
    Thanks.

    Would also love an image from across the portage when the leaves are at peak color — one of my favorite times at Tech!

    These are great. Thank you for sharing and I hope you publish some new ones in the future. Since a number of my coworkers are MTU alumni, I am sure they will appreciate seeing these.
