What's the best way to make friends at Georgia Tech, or the one event on campus that students shouldn't miss?
More than 3,000 new first-year students will swarm to campus this fall, as well as many more second-year students transitioning from remote learning to in-person classes for the first time. So, we asked eight current undergrads in the Ivan Allen College of Liberal Arts to share their best tips, advice, and hard-earned wisdom with them to help make settling into the school year just a little bit smoother.
They told us:
- The best way to make friends at Georgia Tech,
- The best events at Georgia Tech that students shouldn't miss,
- How to succeed at Georgia Tech,
- What they know now that they wish they knew when they were first-year students,
- And their number one advice for new students arriving on campus this fall.
Check out all five videos on our social media channels (Twitter, Instagram, and LinkedIn) or watch them in the video below!
Thank you to all of the students who took the time out of their busy schedules to participate and share their hard-earned wisdom in our video!
