Michigan Tech has a lot of recognizable buildings; some good, some bad. We see them every day, we give them cute little nicknames, and we know some of them like the back of our hand. But, some of them are really weird. Like, really weird. Like, what was in the water in Houghton in the 60s and 70s when they redesigned campus? What kind of drugs were they on, and where can I get some to finish my physics homework?

The staff here at the Lewd knew there was a lot of discourse on campus concerning our beloved buildings, so we reached out to the Lewd community for your opinions, and boy, we were not disappointed. Take a look below for some of the best comments by students on Michigan Tech’s buildings.
