Hard, but Great!!!

More than I Expected

The school turned out better than I thought! The rumors are true about the difficulty, but there's so many things in and off campus that can relieve the stress. I'm in the middle of Midtown Atlanta, so I never get bored unless I'm broke (It's a little expensive around here). The student organizations are very welcoming and helpful, and there's hundreds of clubs to choose from for every kind of interest. The dorms aren't that great, though. I was a little disappointed about how bland and small the rooms are, although I lived in a suite-style room which are bigger. The dining halls are hit or miss, especially Woodruff, but it's usually good food. Of course, Atlanta has many other options for dining. There's also free transportation around the campus and through parts of Atlanta, and I'm happy that there's a grocery shuttle that goes to Atlantic Station on the weekends. Overall, it's a great school with an intelligent but fun atmosphere.

Describe how your school looks to someone who's never seen it.

My school is a great school, with awesome academics, athletics, and campus involvement, but wears down student moral with its huge demands.

What should every freshman at your school know before they start?

I would tell myself to prepare for the workload. You need to study hard and go to class. Get involved and don't be afraid to branch out. Wait to see if you need books, before you buy them, and take advantage of professors' office hours.

What's the one thing you wish someone had told you about freshman year?

I wish I would have known more about the stress level that most students face. I also wish I knew that the social scene was mostly Greek/alcohol focused.

Describe how your school looks to someone who's never seen it.

From Antarctica to Tanzania, Everest to Oxford, Georgia Tech realizes that our passions will take us far and wide, so it gives us the opportunity to pursue them, in the form of study abroad, internships, research, or outdoor adventure.

Describe the students at your school.

Some people plan to change the world after they graduate, which is a fantastic goal, but time is of the essence—students at Georgia Tech, we are changing the world now.

What should every freshman at your school know before they start?

Don’t come to college with the idea that you’ll float around and eventually make plans for your life. Enjoy your summer. Be prepared to hit the ground running. For four years, you will be going nonstop. Don’t expect it all to be fun. You’re driven, so it won’t be. You will be miserable at times, but the highs outweigh the lows. People who say college will be the best time of your life floundered around while they were here. College won’t be the best time for you. You will work hard and have a great time. Your life after college won’t steadily decline, but exponentially rise. Work hard so that no matter what point you are in life, you can say, “This is the best time!” Life is too great a gift to waste it longing for days gone by. I’d like to say that life will get easier after graduation, but it won’t. However, you’ll be making a difference and pursuing your passion. You know this is the only way to achieve true happiness. Don’t be afraid to make memories in college but never forget your ultimate goal.

Describe the students at your school.

Everyone continuously challenges themselves to learn more, even through the toughest classes. During shop hours, some people are better at certain tasks and they're all collaborative.

What kind of person should attend this school?

To attend Georgia Tech, you need to be intellectually curious and be able to appreciate understanding how things work. You will need to study and always remain focused on doing your best in every class.

What should every freshman at your school know before they start?

Looking back on my years as a college undergraduate, I would tell myself to be prepared to enjoy some of the most memorable, challenging, and inspiring years that will shape your character for the years following. The people you meet and classes you take will be one of a kind. Be as immersive in you learning experience as much as possible. You will push youself past the boundaries of your current intellect and be intrigued with new passions. College is a time that you will find out more about yourself; your likes and dislikes may change. As long as you strive for the best, you'll land exactly where you want to be. Enjoy college, but be ready to take it all in and make the most of it.

What should every freshman at your school know before they start?

A college degree should set you up with a career that lets you get what you want out of life. To fully understand this advice, you first need to understand what a college degree is. It's a significant monetary and temporal investment in future opportunities. Those future opportunities directly constitute your career, but indirectly relate to whatever it may be that you want to do away from work. I'm a firm believer that most high school seniors don't know exactly what they want to get out of life, which leads to my advice on how you should spend your time in college. You should ensure you have as many opportunities as possible, when you leave college. This is done by working hard in the classroom and coming away with the best knowledge base you can. However, you should also ensure that upon your graduation you have a much better idea about what you want to get out of life. At the end of the day, college is about opportunities. Your time there should be spent taking advantage of as many of them as possible, but also used to ensure that your future is filled with them.

What do you consider the worst thing about your school? Why?

Georgia Tech lacks a bit in overall school spirit. Don't get me wrong, there are plenty of students who are passionate about Georgia Tech athletics, but a large portion of the student body seems to think college is only about academics. It would have been nice to see a few more fans on gamedays and a few more people at parties. Nevertheless, I came away with an almost entirely positive college experience.

What kind of person should attend this school?

Someone interested in Math and Science should absoultely consider Georgia Tech. It provides incredible opportunities within any notable engineering discipline. People who will do well here are those interested in putting in a quite bit of effort over the course of their time in college. Don't let that deter you, though. Those who graduate with Tech degrees boast some of the best returns on investment when compared to any other school in the country. This is particularly true if you live in Georgia and have received the HOPE scholarship.
