3 College Junior

Overall Experience: It's easy to see that professors are pretty excited about their topics, but not every one of them is the best at communicating. Teaching isn't just about knowing facts--it's knowing how to present them.

5 College Junior

Overall Experience: There are tons of opportunities, from career fair, talking with professors and reaching out to alumni. It's hard to find someone on campus who isn't applying for internships/co-ops or research opportunities.

4 College Junior

Health & Safety: I usually feel pretty safe on campus. There are times at night when it can be sketchy to walk around the perimeter of Georgia Tech, but as long as you're not out at 3 am, you're probably gonna be okay.

3 College Junior

Campus Housing: Freshmen dorms are alright, some better than others. Apartment housing on campus tends to go downhill a little, but GLC brings it back up. West campus is generally quieter than East campus (mostly if you're into Greek life). Housing is a bit pricey, though.

3 College Junior

Greek Life: I'm a non-Greek who pretty much knows nothing about Greek life. Sorry.

4 College Junior

Athletics: The Campus Recreation Center is fantastic! Olympic pool, high quality gym equipment, turf fields. Pretty much anything you could ask for. The football & basketball teams are doing pretty well too, which makes me proud to be here.

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: One of my favorite experiences was studying abroad in France. I love that Georgia Tech is challenging, but the strong sense of community in our school motivates me to keep going. I would definitely choose this school all over again--I just wish it wasn't so expensive out of state!

5 College Freshman

Overall Experience: This school is fantastic. Everyone is extremely friendly and the clubs are very incorporative. One night a couple friends and I ran through the dorm and started a spontaneous midnight soccer game. At tech, most of the clubs are targeted at synergizing your favorite activity with what you are being taught in classes.

Greek Life: Not my thing but ok

5 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: Amazing, any top company that comes to mind attends our school for career fairs, random company talks, etc.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: Simply, the school is challenging becuase Georgia Tech is a place where slackers do not go. It's a place that is trying to prepare it's students for success in the workplace.

5 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: The Georgia Tech administration take the health & safety of all of it's students very seriously. Especially GTPD, which provide proper support and protection for students across the campus.

5 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: The housing that I stayed in last year and will be staying in is one of the newly renovated buildings on campus. So, my dorm experience has been great so far.

3 College Sophomore

Greek Life: I am not apart of Greek Life, but it is a big part of Georgia Tech's social scene.

4 College Sophomore

Athletics: Athletics at the Georgia Institute of Technology are great and shows that smart people can be athletic as well.

5 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: Georgia Tech is a very challenging school and is not for anyone looking to coast through college. Although tough, the lessons that you learn will prepare you for an amazing life.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: Like I said before, Georgia Tech is a tough school to attend, when it comes to balancing rigorous academics, social life, and time to get some sleep. But it takes being in tough circumstances to exhibit the most growth, so long as one maintains the tenacity to achieve within them. I have been going through such strife at Georgia Tech, and as a result, I have grown much more academically and morally mature. This institution, for what it is worth, has taught me incredibly valuable lessons in my life as a student and as an overall human being.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: I want to get a degree in Chemical Engineering from Georgia Tech and gear it in the focus of Renewable Energy Systems such as photovoltaic and solar-thermal technology. I may spend a few years working in the energy sector straight out of school as a way to gain real world exposure and earn income to fund my research and further learning. But eventually, I would like to earn a doctorate pertaining to Energy Systems, focusing on the direct implementation of carbon-neutral energy solutions in the infrastructure of a society.

4 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: There is a sexual violence awareness and prevention organization on campus called VOICE, and they make a very powerful emphasis on their support and outreach services.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: I lived in a decent dorm last year, and the community was very large and open. It was not one of the best dorms on campus, but it was definitely spacious enough to enjoy.

3 College Sophomore

Greek Life: The Black Greek Letter Sororities and Fraternities, from what I have experienced, do a great service within the Georgia Tech black community, academically, as well as recreationally.

4 College Sophomore

Athletics: There's nothing like Southern College Football!

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: Georgia Tech's academic curricula is incredibly rigorous, and it brings stress and strife. But it takes equal amount of grit to overcome the challenges the school offers. And in all honesty, I would not it any other way.

3 College Senior

Party Scene: Most parties take place during the weekend. A lot of the parties are greek, but there are a few floor parties in the dorms.

Party Scene: Most of the parties are frat parties, and we're kind of cut off from the rest of Atlanta, so most of the clubs/bars are too far away.

Overall ExperienceWhat's this?

View student contributors

It is true that many Tech students might sometimes wish that they had chosen another, less demanding school for college. Georgia Tech is very academically demanding, to an extreme that alienates many students and parents. Many see the school as a sort of "proving ground" for professional life.

However, the size of the student body is not overly large, and it is easy for one to get involved socially and academically without straining your GPA. The rigorousness of academic life at Georgia Tech instills a rare motivation in the students there that will prepare them well for professional life. Most students feel that an education at Tech was worth all the work.
