    Michigan Tech is a little pricey, but the money is more than worth it. There are tons of things to do, places to see, and organizations to join. The teachers are dedicated to the success of their students. The university provides learning centers in every subject staffed by upperclassmen to help students do homework, understand concepts, and study for tests. They offer services to help students get a job, internship/co-op, study abroad, and many other services. Tech is definitely worth the money.
