Woah! I totally go to school there. They've actually got a really good engineering program and its a sweet place if you like lots of hot girls and big parties but the skiing is very sub par. I go about 3 hours north every weekend just to get decent skiing. If you want to go to a really good engineering school and have sweet skiing (for the midwest at least) I would suggest Michigan Tech. Its in the town that I am originally from and as long as you don't mind a little smaller town and not a whole lot of girls it is a sweet school. Check out www.skimontripley.com
(5ish minutes from campus) and www.mtbohemia.com
(45ish minutes from campus). And about 2 hours away is Marquette Mountain which has no questions asked the best all around midwest terrain park. Any other questions about Western or Tech feel free to hit me up.
