4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: Some professors care more than others and some have a better knack for teaching, just how it works. But overall, everyone is extremely proficient in their field and wants to talk about what they are doing and the enthusiasm is good.

5 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: The ROI (return on investment) is insane here. Even your average students in the major are heavily recruited to work for top companies, like Deloitte, because even an average student at GT is one of the best that there is.

4 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: Atlanta, especially the midtown area, has improved alot in the past few years. However, it is still a very unsafe area. The GTPD does an excellent job of patrolling and making sure students get home safe after late nights studying. Additionally, during finals, hell, and dead weeks they provide additional services to return students home safely at night.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: It can be a hassle and its a toss up of whether you get what you want, but it's not that bad overall. Relatively cheap compared to what you would find in most of Atlanta

3 College Sophomore

Greek Life: I don't know much about Greek life, but everybody is very chill. Mainly they throw parties and have date nights.

5 College Sophomore

Athletics: As a student athlete, I love our facilities and our teams!!!! The student athletic staff is very helpful and open about helping you get tutoring and managing your courseload. However, also as an athlete, the time demands can be very difficult to manage. Additionally, even with title 9 there are very few female athletic scholarships which means that I receive nothing (financially towards my education) for my athletic ventures.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: It is very stressful, one slip up and all your grades are in the toilet for the whole semester. I lost my last scholarship because of an abusive relationship that got in the way of my study's. I have learned from my mistakes and I just need a second chance.

5 College Freshman

Overall Experience: Georgia Tech is a school where you are challenged every day to do your best. There is a lot of studying to do, but there is also so many opportunities for outside activities. The university strives to develop the whole person.

4 College Junior

Campus Housing: I love being in the city. Easy access to classes from almost anywhere if you have a bike.

3 College Junior

Greek Life: I'm not a Greek. I think it's a waste of money.

4 College Junior

Athletics: Georgia Tech is serious about it's sports!

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: I haven't been to Georgia Tech yet. I start in the fall, but I previously attended Armstrong State. It was a great school, and I love the people!

4 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: I'm a commuter student, so I have never lived on campus. The other students have said living off campus is slightly cheaper.

4 College Sophomore

Greek Life: I'm not in Greek life and most likely will not join once I get on campus in August, so I can not yet speak to the Greek life.

4 College Sophomore

Athletics: I'm not a sports fan and have not been in any of the athletic facilities yet.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: I've transferred into my current school and am attending orientation next week. The knowledge that my school is a leader in the STEM fields will make me always come back.

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: Quality and content of courses changes drastically from professor to professor. It helps a lot to do the relevant research before taking a certain course from a certain professor, in order to accordingly adjust expectations of grades from said course.

5 College Junior

Overall Experience: A lot of schools only provide you with an education, but Georgia Tech makes sure that the education it provides you translates into a job in the real world.

3 College Junior

Health & Safety: Since it's in the middle of a city, it is not the most secure place to be out and about by yourself at night. Campus health resources (Stamps health center) are great.

3 College Junior

Campus Housing: I lived on-campus my first year and off-campus the next. On campus housing is a pretty big lottery; a lot of the dorms have been renewed in recent years and so the facilities are very nice, but a lot are very old and in need of renovation. As far as value is concerned, I would definitely recommend living off campus. There are many apartments that are being constructed that are a walking distance from campus that are way better than living in on-campus housing

4 College Junior

Greek Life: Definitely not your typical "frat bro - srat girl" type of greek life. Even though there are those greek houses that only exist to throw parties all the time, most of the greek community actually has a great impact on campus, whether through leadership or through philanthropy.

4 College Junior

Athletics: Housed the 1996 Atlanta Olympics, and sports are very important, so athletics facilities are top notch

5 College Junior

Overall Experience: If you're like me and like to be academically challenged and pushed to achieve your best, Georgia Tech is for you

4 College Sophomore

Athletics: Now, I am not a big athletics individual, but I do know that Georgia Tech has incredible school spirit and some of the best facilities in the country. I have participated in intramural soccer, and I would definitely say that it is a competitive and thriving aspect of Tech life.

5 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: Georgia Tech has simply been the best learning environment I have experienced so far in my life. My fellow Georgia Tech students exhibit a contagious passion toward not only their classwork and assignments, but also exhibit incredible open-mindedness towards cultures and traditions different from their own. Such an environment breeds an unparalleled level of acceptance and understanding, while also providing numerous opportunities to branch out and experience new activities and cultures. I would not trade this environment for the world.

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.
