    You can find just about every type of person at GaTech. The culture ranges from fraternities to geeks and everything in between and catering to both at the same time. Most people are studious in one way or another.

    2 Rated January 2016
  • Alumni
    BS in Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering, Class of 2009

    Aside from (and I suppose due to) the ever present construction on-campus, there are excellent facilities. There are many computer labs which have excellent systems. Classrooms, dining halls, and dorms vary widely based on when they were designed.

    5 Rated January 2016
  • Alumni
    History and Sociology, Class of 2013

    Dorms and apartments are tolerable at best, the rest of Tech was awesome. The computer labs and library were great. Dining halls were okay.

    I don't have anything to contrast it against; about average, I guess?

    I took bellydance classes there at the CRC, and that's pretty unique. Just like the people, you can find almost anything you could want to be involved in from solar-cars to intramurals.

What's the dating scene like in this city? Will I meet my perfect mate?
1 Answer
  • Atlanta attracts a diverse population, so odds favor finding your “type” somewhere in this bustling city. However, stats show that single women outnumber single men by about 80,000 (one of the largest such gaps in the country), which can be good news or bad depending on your preferences.
