At MSOE, that combination makes it easy to enjoy every minute of downtime. And that’s important, because let’s face it: College is about more than just studying. It’s also about making memories.  

Maybe you’ll spend your weekend exploring our lively East Town neighborhood, just blocks from Lake Michigan and walking distance to Bucks games, concerts, restaurants, coffee shops and other downtown fun.  

Maybe you’ll get involved in campus activities, from open skating at the Kern Center to a mashed potato war during St. Patrick’s Week to building replicas of famous buildings out of thousands of Legos.  

Maybe you’ll find your fit in one of our 100+ student organizations — including Greek life, student government, and special interests ranging from gaming to unicycling (yes, really!).  

Maybe you’ll join or cheer on Raider athletics — we offer more than 20 NCAA Division III teams, plus numerous club and intramural sports.  

So what will you do after class?
