Ellery Kirkconnell

Position: 
Senior Admission Counselor

Years at Tech: Less than 1.

Favorite thing about Georgia Tech: This is a hard one to narrow down, but one thing that comes to mind immediately is the integration of technology in nearly every classroom experience. It teaches our students to think and do far beyond both in and out the classroom. 

Favorite place on Campus: Tech Green instantly became one of my favorite spots on campus! I love being able to say that I work in a campus centered in a city yet surrounded by green spaces. You will find students and guest relaxing outside, a lineup of food trucks, hammocks and of course one or two footballs being thrown around. 

Favorite Place in Atlanta: Little Five Points has become one of my favorite spots in Atlanta due to its artistic vibes, mom and pop shops and of course the great food selections. 

Favorite Restaurant near Campus: Negril Village Atlanta.

What I recommend to do while in Atlanta: Spend a good portion of the day at Ponce City Market and if you’re into farmers markets, checkout DeKalb Farmers Market. DeKalb Farmers Market is truly an experience and it gives other farmers marker a run for their money!
