Best advice for an incoming student: 
Don’t put limits on yourself. You are about to be presented with some opportunities that you will never have again in your life. Try to be aware of them as they present themselves, and don’t hold back when something peaks your interest. College does not have to solely be a time to build up your resume. You have already proven that you are qualified, driven, and dedicated – that’s why you got into Tech. Look into the infinitely long list of new opportunities you have as a student at this school and do something that makes you happy!

Why should you come to Wreck Camp?: 
One of the biggest regrets that many of my friends at Tech share is that they never went to Wreck Camp. The power of this program is hard to put into words, but I can assure you that it is something you do not want to miss out on. I signed up as an incoming first year, not knowing anyone else who was going or what I was getting myself into. I left those few days with a loving and diverse community who supports me to this day, knowledge about how to be successful in school and pursue my interests, and an undeniable love for Georgia Tech.
