The students are semi-nerdy (which I like) and pretty friendly. There is definitely a more modest feel- the people here are not snobs at all. People tend to mind their own business.

The people here are nice in general. Not super nice or outgoing, but just nice and easy to talk to.

I like that GT is in the city. It's clean, sorta modern looking (but not in an overdone flashy way) and simple. It's easy to get around.



Building/Facilities Maintenance/Cleanliness:
4 - Very Good
4 - Very Good
It's clean, but it's right in the city, so it's not super polished and beautiful like some private suburban or rural schools. Personally, I like it more this way.



Dormitories:
4 - Very Good

The dorms are clean and simple. I went into a freshman dorm room and it was pretty small but clean and functional- just how I like it.



Security/Safety:

It's in the heart of Atlanta so you shouldn't go wandering all over late at night, but overall you get a safe feel here.

Campus Visit Notes for Georgia Institute of Technology (Georgia Tech)


Visit Description:

I have visited by myself a few different times this year. I am a senior in high school. I like Atlanta. I think it is a down-to-earth area with lots of different people doing different things. I think it's good for tech start ups. It's probably the best place in the south for engineers, IT people, tech specialists, etc. in the South.

Other Comments (Transportation, local attractions, parking, etc.):

There is a good shuttle. Parking is pretty easy.
