When I first went off to college, it was but a mere 35 miles from my home. I started at Montana State University. I was a bit to insecure about myself to venture to far from the “nest” I guess! And I think I was still trying to figure out what I wanted to be when I grew up. (And maybe I still am?) But after 3 years, I made a HUGE leap, and transferred to the University of Houston and the Hilton College of Hotel and Restaurant Management. Obviously, since you are on a real estate-related website, I’ve since changed careers.
But I do remember many choice moments in my college days. I took the extended plan (6 years) to get one degree, but I had a blast doing it. My profession, unlike most of those you will pursue at Georgia Tech, was not 100% based on your GPA, but also on your work experience. I remember the interview that landed my first job, and I know it was as much my out-of-classroom experience as it was my in-the-classroom experience that got me that job.
One thing I DON’T remember about either college was anything special happening when I arrived. Of course, MSU was my Freshman college…I had three years under my belt when I transferred to UofH. But I can say, I don’t think I was welcomed to MSU quite the way the Freshman class of 2013 was welcomed to Georgia Tech.
Enjoy the college experience. At some point, you might want to escape the dorm life and look for a Georgia Tech off-campus housing option . When you and your parents make that decision. it most likely will involve purchasing a Midtown Atlanta condo.
I’ll be happy to help you and your parents find a great condo and can tell you about ALL the options available to you when you start to explore Midtown Atlanta.
I can’t promise you any theme music, but, I’ll be here to help!
