Student Spotlight

Kyle Murphy
" I chose Tech because of its reputation and because members of my family are successful Tech alumni. I like the small-school atmosphere at Montana Tech. It's easy to talk to any professor, and the classes are taught by faculty members -- not lab aides. I like the Mining department because of its hands-on attitude, and every professor has an open-door policy.  And, where else would I get to play with large equipment and explosives?"
