Major: Industrial Design (This Major's Salary over time)
I graduated from Tech many years ago, but I think most have the same sentiment that I took away with me.

Tech will stretch your abilities so far that what ever you experience after graduation will seem easy..

The problem with tech is that they don't get it.. They have all of the things you would need to have a great college experience. Plenty of students, a game room, extra-curricular activities, job support, etc. But it always seemed that there was no heart in any of them.

Too much of it felt clinical. Like a friend that was paid to be your friend. They can do everything right, but you know it isn't sincere, and they're more concerned with the money than being your friend.

I don't have any regrets for going to Tech, and it's a great education, but if you're looking for a life experience, and aren't sure exactly what you want to do, tech will be a depressing place for you. No one will hold your hand until you're comfortable.

I was in the Industrial Design program, which is in a studio setting where you complete your four years with pretty much the same group of people.. Our studio formed very tight bonds that have lasted until this day..

But I didn't have even one friend that I met outside of my major.. Can't even say I knew anyone outside of my major. But I'd say this, Atlanta is a big city. and you can also meet non-tech students with like interests.. That's what I did, and I had a great time my last two years.

But tech is seriously cheap, and it's a great degree. And I'll say this..
