Off-Campus Dining: I do not have a car, so I do not eat off campus very often, except for random trips to Cookout from frats.

4 College Freshman

Administration: Most of the time administration allows students to exist on their own terms so long as nobody is breaking laws or endangering anyone.

Scholarships: I was not eligible for financial aid from Tech.

College Freshman

Party Scene: I cannot drink due to an allergy, and I tend toward introversion, so I do not really like parties. However, almost every frat house on campus parties on Fridays, and most people go fropping.

3 College Freshman

Campus Food: Meal plans are way more expensive than they should be, because unless you eat four meals a day, its not really worth the money. But the ready to eat food you dont have to make is a perk.

4 College Freshman

Campus Housing: The dorms are all pretty old, but most have been renovated. Like most upper level colleges, the dorms aren't the main perks (education is) but they are still comfortable.

4 College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: With new housing projects such as University Housing and Square on Fifth going up in tech square the options and prices have improved.

Health & Safety: Good security system, but spooky to walk alone at night

Athletics: Good school spirit, our team had a wonderful game with UGA

Greek Life: I'm not involved in Greek Life so I don't know much about it. However, the Greeks that I know are usually really friendly and welcoming. They host a lot of cool events that most people can go to.

Local Area: It's Atlanta! There's always something going on and if there's a chance to get off campus then you should definitely try to!

3 College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: Living off-campus definitely has a lot of perks and if you're picky about your living situation, it's probably best to live off-campus. I definitely advise that you stay close to campus though. Off-campus housing is expensive and you don't want to miss out on all the stuff that happens on campus.

5 College Freshman

Administration: I like the strictness. I think it's fair and ensures the mass safety of students at our school.

4 College Freshman

Athletics: Football games at Tech get pretty huge. Everyone is heavily immersed in the rivalry between Tech and UGA. It's really fun to go to games.

3 College Freshman

Campus Housing: Campus housing isn't too much to be excited for. You won't spend that much time in the dormitories though, so it's okay. It's expensive and you might as well take the cheapest options available on campus. Definitely try to be on campus though, there's a nice sense of community with the people who live in your halls.

3 College Freshman

Party Scene: I personally don't attend parties because I don't have time between school and work. But I hear that the party life is generally restricted to the fraternities on campus.

4 College Freshman

Guys & Girls: People are not as awkward as the rumors go! There are a lot of social events and between schoolwork and studying, people are always around having fun with their friends.

Overall Experience: Classes are certainly difficult. You really need to focus and prioritize your studying in order to perform well. However, there are ample tools to be successful and it's definitely possible.

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.
