michigan tech stc


The Student Technology Conference has grown from, and seeks to nurture, a very strong sense of community among its attendees. From Birds of a Feather sessions to half-day networking activities, community is a constant theme of the STC. One of the more tangible ways this manifests itself is in the strong social bonds formed among those who stay together on campus.

It all comes together in the residence hall each evening: discussing the events of the day, sharing the ups and downs of our work experiences, and forging the relationships that are a hallmark of this conference.

Within Hillside Place, four participants would have individual bedrooms, sharing a kitchenette, living room and two bathrooms. Linen service will be provided (bedding (sheets, pillow/pillowcase, blanket), towel/washcloth).
