    When I was a student, there was not a lot going on as it was transitioning from a commuter school to a more traditional setting. The students were (are) diverse and come from a variety of backgrounds.

    I was a first generation college student, so I wasn't aware that with my good academic background, I should have targeted GA Tech/UGA. I didn't feel like I was in a culture, though there were frats/sororities, student groups, etc. There is a large prescence of black students, and the school almost seems like an HBSU.

    Criminal Justice , Class of 1997

    Some parts of the school were designed from an old parking deck built many, many years previous to the school using them. The halls were slanted but I'd say they were pretty inventive! The classrooms were always big enough for the class size. And the dining hall was fairly large when I went there.

    some class and office buildings are new and up to date with technology, newer paint and flooring, etc; others are old and need to be remodeled. I never used the dining or dorm facilities.

    I was commuting 38 miles one way to take classes and had a serious boyfriend who is now my husband so I didn't participate in any extra school groups. But I had heard that they were very organized and fun.
