Best advice for an incoming student: 
Don't let the transition to college scare you. I know coming to Georgia Tech can be a daunting task and overwhelming at first. Just take a moment to stop, take a deep breathe, and start chipping away one task at a time. You will find that you're in a very special place, surround by people who want, (and are willing to help), you succeed.

Why should you come to Wreck Camp?: 
Wreck Camp has had one of the biggest impacts on my Georgia Tech Career. It is where I learned that there's more to me than just the rigid high school stereotype I either was or wanted to be. I learned to branch out and be myself and found that that was what people respected the most. It is where I found mentors I can confide in and close friends that I hold even to this day. My camper year at Wreck Camp is still one of my favorite Georgia Tech memories.
