Because the program holds “no classes on Fridays,” Thursday night is a time for social¬izing. “Every Thursday there is a social event either at a restaurant, atrium in the aca¬demic building, or elsewhere where current students, alumni, and professors interact in a relaxed environment,” students tell us. Fridays aren’t for hangovers, though; students “have two or three group meetings every Friday.” The “Fridays off” policy, students explain, “is the only thing that makes group work possible” in this busy program.
Georgia Tech’s “midtown Atlanta location” “offers numerous educational, professional, and social opportunities,” although some warn that the surrounding neighborhood “has some safety issues.” Most everyone agrees that the Atlanta location is a huge advantage overall, both in terms of “keeping outside ‘real world’ connections with professionals in our industry of choice” and culturally. “It is an exciting and vibrant life at Georgia Tech,” one student reports.
Georgia Tech “attracts many people from the engineering fields, but also from financial services as well. This makes for a strong competition between teams in case reports and presentations.” The program is home to lots of “Type-A driven people who are very engaging in class discussion and projects.” Even so, “The culture is not over-competitive or cut-throat. We are like a family pushing each other to learn and to accomplish great things.”
