to Georgia tech has been one of the best choices
I could have made. Here's why...
ACADEMICS: Awesome. Of course
there are some core classes that are not fun to
take but overall the courses are at least somewhat interesting
and often the amount of work required is appropriate. Plus,
once graduated, you have one of the more valuable degrees
in the nation. For whatever major you choose, Georgia Tech
is likely to provide the right level of challenging and
interesting work. For the more boring classes, you sometimes just
have to tough it out for the semester.
I joined one of the bigger fraternities on campus freshman
year so that certainly helped (I would recommend rushing for
everyone as there is a fit for every type at
Georgia Tech). Anyways, I often went out 4 nights a
week (and have maintained a 4.0 thus far) and always
had a great time. Campus isn't always amazing at night
but there are always people walking around looking to have
fun. Thursday night are usually the best followed by fridays.
Never schedule early friday classes if you plan on being
hungover ever! To summarize, we do have a lot of
fun at Georgia Tech and I would not trade it
OVERALL: Great academics, awesome social life, prioritize and
you will be able to partake and succeed in the
3 most important aspects of college: social life, academics, and
sleep. All three are possible I promise!
If you value
your education but still like to go out often, Georgia
Tech will not let you down.
