WHAT I LIKED

The location is fantastic! The campus is right in the heart of Midtown Atlanta, so it's really easy to interact with the rest of the city, while still feeling like you live on a college campus.

WHAT I didn’t LIKE

Classes are super hard.

WHAT I LIKED

Generally, it is a very welcoming environment once you find people who share your interests. Finding your niche may be difficult at first, but try to join clubs that interest you and befriend your roommates if you choose to be randomly assigned. I have found that talking to people in class is a good way to make acquaintances and find people that can help when you are stuck on homework or projects, but my best friends have come from my living arrangements and clubs. The classes are very hard, I won't lie. Especially for STEM majors, and ESPECIALLY for engineering majors. I started in Industrial Design, and then switched to computer engineering, so I like to think I have a pretty objective perspective on the workload of both STEM and non-STEM programs. As long as you manage your time (relatively) well and are interested in what you are studying, you will do fine.

WHAT I didn’t LIKE

Since the courses are so difficult, it is easy to feel out of place. As someone who came in with little to no coding experience especially, many of the classes that heavily relied on coding (CS 1331, 1332, PHYS 2211-M, ECE 2040) were extremely difficult. It can also be hard to find resources to catch up in your classes without feeling like you're just "not smart enough". It can feel very isolating, and often stress-inducing. This, to me, is why finding a good support system at school is so important. Try to diversify your friend group so that you can go to people with different experiences when you are struggling. The academic coaching staff is also an excellent resource, and I highly recommend working with them.

WHAT I LIKED

I look forward to everything about Georgia Tech, it is a great campus and I cannot wait to go there!

WHAT I didn’t LIKE

They should be aware of time. Every person there is an intelligent individual, so do not spend time being too self-absorbed about how smart you are. Spend all your time focusing on your studies.

WHAT I LIKED

I think I love the community of people here the most. I have met many driven individuals who inspire me to be the best version of myself, encouraging me in my academic and personal life. The academic rigor of the school had been pressured for a long time. In the end, it was for my benefit; it has helped mold me into a more refined individual. I am more proactive in my life and schoolwork, and I have developed stronger time-management skills and more discipline.

WHAT I didn’t LIKE

Don't underestimate the importance of taking care of your health as a person (mental/physical/spiritual). This school doesn't do the best job of encouraging the faculty and staff to be aware that many students struggle with mental health issues.

WHAT I LIKED

I love the open feel of the campus even though you are right in the city.

WHAT I didn’t LIKE

The only thing I didn't like was the relative size of the rec center, it needs to be a little larger to accommodate more students.
