Health & Safety: The GT police do a tremendous job patrolling the campus and trying to keep us safe, but the danger lies in how close the campus is to downtown Atlanta and how people will rob students when it's late at night. The daytime is safe but there have been cases of robbery at night. GT alerts are sent out when a robbery happens and they set up an investigation to look out for the suspects.

Overall Experience: The professors, well most of them, are quite engaged in what they teach and excited to be there and that helps me learn better. There are so many courses to take, even for English. The class sizes differ based on the class. The CS classes are usually quite full but LMC courses like Creative Writing aren't so much. I really enjoy the class environment and the professors as it serves as a helpful learning environment.

Overall Experience: Graduating from Georgia Tech is not only quite the achievement but opens a doorway to many career opportunities. They have a few career fairs each year and many companies come because of how prestigious the school is. Many students are able to get internships and co-ops even if they're freshmen. All in all, it's amazing the opportunities given and how often they're given.

Campus Housing: Living on campus is nice since I'm close to all my classes and great food options. My dorm is an all girls dorm and if quite cleanly and nice compared to many of the freshman dorms on campus. Though we don't socialize much on my floor, the girls are really nice and my RA is very sweet. Overall, the dorm life is great and convenient being near classes and other sources.

Greek Life: I'm not fully aware about how the Greek scene works nor do I care since I'm not involved with it. I hear many people who are part of sororities or fraternities say that they are massive fun and how much of a family it is. I don't think we non-Greeks look at Greeks any differently than how they view us. To each other, we're really nothing more than classmates and I think that's all that should matter. We support one another, not neglect because we're from different social groups. The Greek housing is fairly nice depending on what frat you're in. Many have the funds for a nicer house and keep then well kept. Otherwise, many are just like normal houses.

5 College Freshman

Athletics: The athletics are highly praised and many people attend them. The football games are especially popular and the student body is very involved and supportive. The CRC is a very nice facility and offers many fitness classes and equipment. Not only students work out there but other residents nearby.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: My experience so far has been great. I've definitely been given a huge opportunity to work with some of the greatest minds of this generation. The football games are fun and there are many events that really bring people together and spread school spirit. Georgia Tech is not only prestigious but a great place to learn and get the resources you need to succeed. I would do whatever it took to get into this school again because of the opportunities it offers and where it could take me in my future.

3 College Junior

Greek Life: The Greek society of GT is viewed as a bit cliquey but still a integral part of the student body.

4 College Junior

Athletics: Athletics at my school are important, but it does not heavily revolve around campus. The Campus Recreation Center is perfect for any student or faculty of any physical fitness level. With a variety of equipment, gym space, courts, pools, and class areas, there are multiple options for a person to take part in physical fitness.

Academics: Classes are very difficult, forcing you to work hard. By the end of the semester, you are surprised by how much you have learned. However, there are some teachers that are very tough, bad, or just don't care.

Health & Safety: Since we are in downtown Atlanta, there are many hazards. Tech tries very hard to keep us safe, with Georgia Tech police on campus, safety apps, etc. However, since we are an open campus, it is hard to prevent a lot of things. There are lots of counseling services for victims of sexual assault and rape. Tech stresses recognition of these issues.

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.
