funny that you say this, because my aunt and uncle live in TC. They are both doctors and have 3 little kids haha. But I can say that marquette offers an ample night life, and there is actually a lot of things going on down in the harbor during the summer months... kind of like TC. I would also say that MQT is as much of a family community as TC, you just don't see that aspect of the community when your in the dorm. Give it another year and a half plus a summer spent up here working someplace in town, and you will get a really good taste of what actual community members are like, not just kids in the dorm and on campus.
