Years at Georgia Tech: 4 as an Undergraduate Student and 9 in Admission

Favorite Thing About Georgia Tech: My favorite thing would have to be all of Tech's quirky traditions. Whether it's the Freshman Cake Race, RAT Caps, or singing "I'm a Ramblin' Wreck" after every touchdown, Tech students are very proud of their traditions and love to keep them going strong!

Favorite Place on Campus: The Tech Tower Lawn is beautiful year-round, whether you're studying in the sun during the Spring or playing in the snow during Winter. With both Tech Tower and Bobby Dodd Football Stadium adjacent to the lawn, it's easy to forget you're in the heart of Atlanta!

Favorite Restaurant Near Campus: Flip Burger is a great restaurant that is run by a Top Chef contestant. Their food is definitely one of a kind!

Favorite Place in Atlanta: Peachtree Street is one of my favorite parts of Atlanta. If I'm just driving through or going for a run, there's always so much going on with the restaurants, shops, and offices that line the street.

What I recommend to do while in Atlanta: If you have a few days to just be a tourist, I recommend getting a City Pass for Atlanta. You'll be able to visit the Georgia Aquarium, World of Coke, and Zoo Atlanta with a discounted pass. Even as an Atlanta native, I really enjoyed touring the city and getting a glimpse into a little bit of everything!
