Overall Experience: The school has great academic programs and extra curricular activities to join. Diversity is another huge asset. Start up program and COOP are great ways to get involved in real world business. Working experience is one of the best part of Georgia Tech.

Overall Experience: Georgia Tech is ridiculously hard, and the most rewarding experience so far of my life. Go Jackets!

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: I am so happy that I chose Georgia Tech. I couldn't see myself anywhere else. I joined a sorority and while I was unsure about it at first I am happy with my decision to join one. My classes are challenging but I know that my professors are preparing me for what I need to know and that the Georgia Tech staff provides all the resources and help I need to ensure I get a job.

5 College Senior

Overall Experience: The location of Georgia Tech in the middle of Atlanta makes it perfect for doing stuff on the weekends. I love living in a large city rather than a college town. The school is great for obvious reasons with regards to its reputation, but it is things like this that really set it apart from many other colleges.

3 College Freshman

Overall Experience: I haven't started yet. The admitted student visit wasn't very informative, but I really like the campus, programs, size & school stats (it's top 10 for engineering)

5 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: Georgia Tech is a great place to learn and is full of very intelligent students and staff. It was a little harder than I was initially prepared for, but there are tons of opportunities to help students succeed.

Overall Experience: I feel like it would be a good idea to have a better orientation for transfer students. I was told not to bring a laptop to orientation and then had to wait in a long line to see my adviser and ended up having to register for classes on my phone. It felt very impersonal and wasn't much help. If they would split up the transfer and foreign exchange orientation that would help a lot.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: My overall experience at school has been great. Although I haven't begun classes yet, my school has been active in keeping me informed about what is happening on campus, and there are so many extended orientation opportunities for me to get involved and meet other students.

3 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Housing: There are more options every semester as new student housing is built, but the cost is still pretty high. You'll sacrifice proximity for the price you save.

5 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Dining: You're in the middle of midtown Atlanta. If you can't find something you like, there's something wrong with you.

4 College Sophomore

Administration: Controlling 20,000 college kids in the middle of Atlanta can't be easy. GTPD keeps everyone safe despite a possibly dangerous environment; the rest is however pronounced you seek it out to be.

3 College Sophomore

Scholarships: As a research institution, much of the money goes to funding research rather than meeting the full demonstrated need of the students. If you qualify, you will receive some. But expect to take out a loan or two to help cover the costs.

5 College Sophomore

Campus Food: We have an incredible selection of on-campus food offerings.

4 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: Off-campus housing is astronomical, so this provides the same quality but in a much better location.

5 Recent Alumnus

Greek Life: Lived in my fraternity house all 4 years, very active with a large percentage of the school being greek.

4 Recent Alumnus

Party Scene: Welfare Wednesday's in Buckhead were cheap and popular.

5 Recent Alumnus

Off-Campus Dining: Its Atlanta so there were many options available to us.

4 Recent Alumnus

Administration: Had shot parties in our buildings, even though it was against the rules.

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.
