LIFE AFTER TECH
Graduation from Montana Tech is naturally bittersweet; the excitement of starting a new chapter in your life mixed with the sadness of leaving an old one behind. This place where you will live, laugh, learn, and grow with all of your friends will become home and although it may be hard to leave, there will always be ways to stay connected.
The Montana Tech Alumni Association works hard to keep you informed of campus happenings and connected to classmates and other Tech grads. You can join them at any of the Alumni Events they hold throughout the country, and by joining the association you will receive the MNews magazine with updates and highlights of current activities happening throughout the alumni community.
Another great way to stay connected is by assisting with our ongoing recruitment efforts. Our Alumni are always eager to spread the word of Montana Tech to their friends, family, and colleagues and many of them come back for the annual career fair to hire new Tech students for full-time employment and summer internships; some even go as far as spreading the word in their local high schools by visiting their chemistry and math classes.
If recruitment isn’t your thing you can always share your enthusiasm for your Alma Mater by giving to the Montana Tech Foundation. Student scholarships, new laboratory equipment, and supplemental funding for excellent faculty recruitment are all efforts funded through Alumni donations. By giving back to the school, our Alumni are helping future generations of diggers, like yourself, to enjoy the Montana Tech experience and receive an excellent education. We hope that when the time comes, you too will give back and help make another future Oredigger’s dream a reality.

"My proudest moment athletically was representing Tech in the NAIA National Championship Football game against Oklahoma State. Professionally, I joined the sports medicine group which focused on ACL repairs. It was pretty gratifying to know that if a professional ballplayer had a torn ACL, it was likely the repair work was done with our equipment."
