The Pack is Back and Smarter Than Ever

More than 7,000 students have arrived on Michigan Tech’s campus to start the fall
semester, including
the second-largest class of incoming first-year Huskies since 1984.

Following last year’s record-breaking enrollment, Michigan Technological University
welcomed 7,073
students to campus this fall, including 1,388 incoming first-year students. John Lehman, vice president for university relations and enrollment, said last year’s class of new first-year students and this year’s class represent the two largest
since 1984. He also noted that
the average GPA of 3.83 for this year’s incoming class is a new University record. Overall
enrollment grew 1%.

We’re so pleased to welcome another talented group of students to Michigan Tech,” said Lehman. “Over the course of the day first-year students move
in, I ask them and their parents, ‘Why Tech?’ I heard it’s the quality of faculty
and the opportunity to work closely with them from day one. I heard they want the
rigorous academic challenge and the preparation that experience provides. And of course I heard they want the
high salary offers that our degrees command in the employment marketplace.”

More than 2,100 of Michigan Tech’s current students are women, continuing a decade of steady increase in the number
of women ch
oosing Tech. Women will make up nearly 30% of the student body — the University’s
highest percentage ever. 

And for the third straight year, the proportion of students from domestic underrepresented
minority groups grew and now make up over 11.5% of the student body.

To Vice President for Student Affairs and Dean of Students Wallace Southerland III, these numbers suggest encouraging trends. “Once again, Tech’s enrollment numbers reveal what we already know to be true — that Michigan Tech is a flagship technological university where students of all backgrounds
want to be. We offer exceptional academic programs taught by superior faculty and
we offer extraordinarily excellent student development experiences at a reasonable
cost for families.”

“The quality of the academics we offer and the unique life experience that Huskies get while they’re at Tech continue to attract a student body that is
exceptionally smart and increasingly diverse.”Wallace Southerland III, Vice President for Student Affairs and Dean of Students

Since 2014, enrollment in programs now within the College of Computing has nearly
doubled, averaging more than 11% year-over-year growth. [

Of the University’s five colleges, none is growing faster than the College of Computing. “The demand for computing talent in the tech industry has never been stronger,”
said Dennis Livesay, dean of the College of Computing. “Our college’s growth reflects
that demand. We’re thrilled to be offering the quality of education that our students
need for success in the 21st century workforce.” 

The College of Engineering has been Michigan Tech’s most prominent college for many generations, and its reputation
for producing some of the world’s most successful engineers continues to thrive. Programs

Apple HomePod mini 2021 evaluate: Smarter, more vibrant

‘Hey, Siri what does my working day glance like?’

As I check with this, sipping coffee early in the early morning, the little blue globe on the side table springs to lifestyle, a gentle glowing on top, in advance of a male, quite Indian, voice tells me I have an appointment currently, another video clip call, around 4.30 pm.

The new HomePod mini is a tech-powered Jeeves now that Apple has extra personal queries to the 2021 model of its good speakers. And it is not just about queries. I questioned the HomePod to increase a reminder for a new group assembly and it told me I did not have a reminder record and asked if it should generate one. It did so also in a jiffy, all as the Iphone was considerably away juicing up for the working day.

The new HomePod mini is not various in appear from the earlier edition. Nevertheless, Apple has extra a good deal of colour this time and end users have the choice to opt for the color that goes with their decor, or just stands out from it. The overview device I bought was a dark blue, which form of went perfectly with the grey fabric that dominates my dwelling place.

The songs much too blends well into the place. The HomePod mini for me has the ideal sound profile and volume to not adhere out far too significantly. This is a pretty well balanced audio profile that can include oomph if the tune calls for some extra bass. And for those like me who like their audio to be sharper, the options give the solution to lower the bass, an choice I was satisfied to use.

Immediately after filling the space with A R Rahman’s superb compositions for the new Atrangi Re, the HomePod mini was much more than satisfied to engage in Sanjay Subramanian’s Suttrum Nadiye Kande… both of those quite significantly on possibly conclude of the spectrum. But the change is seamless due to the fact the Apple S5 chip inside of the speakers figures out the acoustics to match the speakers and environment. So absolutely nothing at any time jars your working experience. From 1 track to the other, the playlist just flows.

Also, the 360-diploma speakers have acoustics that make it audio the exact anywhere you location it in the house. My only grouse with the mini is that it needs to be wired at all times to work. I was anticipating the new variation would arrive with a battery to make it far more portable. And you just can’t definitely electrical power the HomePod mini from a notebook or Computer system
