Position: Senior Admission Counselor
Years at Tech: Less than 1.
Favorite thing about Tech: I absolutely love Georgia Tech’s campus! It is incredibly beautiful with so much green space. You almost forget you are in a big city until you look up and see the amazing Atlanta skyline. Since Tech was founded in 1885, there is so much history here and many traditions that have remained strong over the years from Sideways the Dog to the Freshman cake Race.
Favorite place on campus: Harrison Square. This is the grassy area right outside of Tech Tower. It is very beautiful when the spring flowers have bloomed. You also have a great view of the city. It is a great place to have a cup of coffee or tea in between classes.
Favorite place in Atlanta: Piedmont Park! This park is in the heart of Midtown Atlanta and is great place for a walk, bike ride or picnic. You can often times find some sort of festival or market taking place here. I highly recommend checking out the park and then venturing to Beltline where there are many great restaurants.
Favorite restaurant near campus: I really enjoy going to Superica in Krog Street Market. They have fantastic steak fajitas! For dessert, check out Jeni’s ice cream. My favorite mix is coffee and dark chocolate in a waffle cone.
What I recommend to do while in Atlanta: I love being outside! If you do too, I would highly recommend visiting Botanical Gardens. If you are here for a few days, you could explore East Palisades Trail as well. It is a beautiful hike along the Chattahoochee River that is not too far from campus. If you enjoy biking, I would recommend checking out the Silver Comet Trail.
