    Tech traditions are awesome to say the least. From football games to midnight breakfast during finals week, there are many events that I have attended that all students even from previous generations of alumni can partake in and feel like a community.

    Personally, I am not enjoying my time here. I have realized that a military college is more of my style, and I do plan to transfer after my spring semester. However, if you love the city, Georgia Tech is located in the heart of Atlanta. There is a ton to do on campus, like intramurals and hundreds of clubs and activities. The surrounding city has tons of great restaurants and malls. MARTA is located right off campus, so the city is practically limitless. However, once you leave campus, you're on your own; Atlanta is dangerous.

    I am loving my time at Georgia Tech. My best advice is to join a sport. I jumped right into the Crew team. The team took me in and now I am fit and my stress levels are low. With the high intensity homework load, a stress reliever is definitely necessary. Along with our amazing sports teams, we have the entire city of Atlanta to enjoy. Good food, good friends, good times.

    To really enjoy your time here, you need to get involved as soon as you get to campus - do not wait because you're worried about how hard it will be or how much time class/homework will take up.

    I have to admit being a bit biased as Tech has been my dream school for some years, but it has not let me down. The people here are extremely kind and polite, the professors are capable and engaging, and there's never a shortage of things to do either on campus or in the Atlanta area. The Tech populus is diverse, open-minded, and highly innovative.
