My Michigan Tech: Olivia Klevorn, Software Engineering

Olivia has loved coding since she was 10. She also enjoys sailing. She’s able to do both at Michigan Tech, studying for her software engineering degree in the College of Computing and joining the MTU Sailing Club.

Olivia’s top tips for incoming Huskies: Visit your professors during their office hours or drop in at the learning center when you need extra help. Attend K-Day—a fun Tech tradition held every fall— to find out about the 240+ organizations you can join to meet friends and pursue old or new hobbies. And, find time to get outside, enjoying nature and our friendly small-town community.

“I didn’t really know what I was getting myself into going to college. I feel like every person going into college kind of has that experience … but I found that I really, really am happy here and that I really love it at Michigan Tech,” says Olivia.
