  • Humans of Michigan Tech—Adam Loman

    I chose Michigan Tech because it is close to home—I’m from Ishpeming—and the Air Force ROTC program offered something other schools didn’t. I like being close to my mom and five sisters. I came in knowing I wanted to do Air Force ROTC because I have a lot of service members in my family and I want to do something I care about. Right now I'm kind of in the dark about where I'll go after I graduate and commission into the Air Force. It's exciting I guess. It's hard to say if I'll be career (military); career is typically 20 (years), but I'm 22, so I can't really fathom that right now. I have a four-year commitment and I'll see what happens after that.

    I run a Physical Training (PT) program five days a week to prep other cadets for Phase I and Phase II exercises (Air Force programs). Exercises, like a Phase I, prepare airmen for battlefield positions. It takes a much more capable individual to be qualified for those positions. I like training people. I like pushing people and helping them become the best versions of themselves; a lot of times, people won't push themselves until they get a little exposure to training at that level and then they'll just fall in love with it. Most people don't enjoy being at that level of discomfort but some do. I like getting people to that point, and you know once they hit that point because I don't have to check in with them and make sure they're coming to PT in the morning because they'll be there five minutes early; that's my favorite thing to see—somebody that's killing it all the way. I picked exercise science (as my major) because I was an athlete in high school and I always enjoyed physical fitness. Exercise science is really useful. I'm able to help out a ton of my friends, the cadets come to me for health programming, and I've made a bunch of programs for them to help them prep for different PT tests and that sort of thing.

  • Humans of Michigan Tech: Adewale Adesanya
    Environmental and Energy Policy PhD student

    I like making an impact. I got my BS in industrial and production engineering; as an engineer, I always wanted to do something new, something innovative. And as the fourth of six children, I looked to what my older siblings were doing to make sure what challenged them, didn’t challenge me.
    After graduating, I worked in oil and gas, which is serious business in Nigeria. But I started having different feelings about environmental pollution, the global temperature increasing, the vulnerability of some highlands, and the damage being caused by conventional energy, so I felt I couldn’t continue to be a part of that anymore—I don't want to be part of the problem in energy, I want to go to green energy—so I started reading about that and doing some certificate courses online.

    My interest in renewable energy is how I hope to make an impact. I know my strengths and boundaries, and things that really concern me I try to go for. So I think that's why I care so much about energy policy and sustainability. Perhaps another factor is my religious background. I'm a Christian and am motivated by my faith.

    I came to Michigan Tech from Germany where I did my master’s in energy and environmental management; I was involved in several renewable energy projects in Scotland, Germany, Kenya, Ghana, and Uganda. I saw that Michigan Tech faculty were interested in a broader view of environmental policy and so am I.

    My family and I moved to Houghton in the summer of 2018. My kids like playing in the snow and eating snow. I'm passionately into music: I play the drums (drum set and local drums), bass guitar, and I sing, too. I play in bands, with locals, and I played at Africa Night. I also attend salsa dancing class where I network with other MTU students and faculty.

  • Humans of Michigan Tech: Lauren Fallu

    I'm a fourth-year biomedical engineering student. I chose Michigan Tech because I knew I wanted to be an engineer. I saw Tech had a really high rate of employment and that was really attractive. And the small classroom sizes. I'm an introvert, so it was more appealing to me. And Michigan Tech has just worked out awesome. I'm from a suburb in Detroit. Nine hours from here. I'm so glad I stayed. I've made really close friends and all my professors I'm super close with—because of small class size, I can form great relationships with them, and I just feel really welcome here.

    I'm on a club volleyball team so that's another group of girls I'm close with; I've been playing volleyball my whole life, I'm so glad I could continue playing while at Tech. I'm close with a lot of the brothers in the fraternity that sponsored me as a Winter Carnival Queen candidate. They asked me if I would want to represent them and I was excited and a little scared because, like I said, I'm an introvert, so putting myself out there and being on stage in front of everyone is really scary to me. But it is something I can be proud of that I did and got over. Also, it's my last semester so I want to keep making memories before I leave campus. I think it's really important to put yourself out there and see what you like and don't like; while you have the time on campus, it's really important to expose yourself to anything you can because now is the time to figure it out. I've been able to do that here.

    One of the memories I'll take with me when I leave campus is snowshoeing. Downstate we don't ever get enough snow to snowshoe. There are so many beautiful trails here. And Mont Ripley. There's no ski hill back home so it's the only time I can go. I also love to go to the Copper Country Humane Society. It's super small so I can play with all the cats and dogs. Where I'm from I could never do that. Everything is much more personal up here.

    I thought I wanted to go into research after I graduated. I got involved in a professor's biomedical engineering research and I found I didn't like it. That experience helped me narrow what I am interested in: industry, actual devices instead of the work to develop the devices. I think Tech makes it a priority to give students diverse classes. I've had a class on cardiovascular engineering, ethics, and medical devices. I've been able to see what specific field I want to go into, what's interesting to me. Cardiovascular engineering is definitely what I want to go into. But if I wouldn't have taken that class, if it hadn't been offered, I would have never known. It's so awesome that the department and professors expose you to different areas.
