The robust academics, the welcoming community, and the beautiful setting of Ruston spurred my interest in Tech. After coming to Tech I can confidently say that it has excelled my expectations. Amongst several great aspects of the university, the one thing that I would like to highlight is the opportunity to get involved outside classrooms. Tech has over a 100 clubs, societies and organizations. Personally, joining these organizations was the best decision I made, and it helped me meet new people, and pushed me to become the best version of myself.
