Georgia Institute of Technology

Mascot : The Yellow Jacket

Campus History and Origin

Georgia School of Technology was opened in 1888. In 1948 the original named was changed to Georgia Institute of Technology. As the name implies Georgia Tech was focused on the development of technology and scientific research. Also that it was focused as a trade school to a recognized technology university.

While as time passed by in 1952, women were admitted in attending to Georgia Tech, but that was not the only accomplishment Georgia Institute made. Georgia Institute of Technology became the first university in the deep south to admit African- American students without a court order.

Fall semester of 2014, freshman who applied to Georgia Institute of Technology was 25,884, there was a 33 percentage rate of the freshman who got accepted. Only 8, 641 freshman applied and got accepted in going to Georgia Institute of Technology.

As Georgia Tech grew it has been a national leader in managing the global transition from an industrial economy to an informational technology. In being part of Georgia Tech you will see how the school prepares it students to use their innovative skills and strong work ethic to solve real-world problems and improve the lives of people around the globe.

Campus Life: When the Whistle Blows

It has been the target of many pranksters and is probably the second most desirable prize on campus behind the Tech Tower ‘T’. The whistle is the oldest recorded tradition at Georgia Tech.

When the whistle blows is a ceremony that honors and celebrates the memory of those who have passed over the past year.

Persuasive Essay

Everyday is a new day, where life gives you another chance in life, and it gives another person to be reborn. The day my father bought our Volkswagen Beetle, in my first year of middle school was the day I wanted to become an mechanical engineer. When I said I wanted to become I had no doubt about it, as a child growing up, I loved putting pieces together, creating new ideas, finding problematic solutions and looking for my solution to my problems.

For example, as starting out my freshman year, I was in another school before I went to El Dorado 9th Grade Academy(ED9). That school I went to did not really talk about getting ready for college until you were a sophomore or a junior. When I went to ED9 that is when my life flipped around and started digging more into collages and what I wanted in life. Throughout my elementary,middle, and high school years of life I have always had my head in the game. I always kept my good grades, I took extra curricular activities like choir,sports, robotics and ROTC, and I always kept excellent behavior, but doing those things were said that would help me get started with the education I wanted.

When I signed up for the magnet engineering school, I was overwhelmed that I would start to experience the career I wanted in life. The day school started to the day it ended I knew my life would change. As I was introduced to the Inventor CAD programming, I knew that was what I wanted in life. Inventor is not the only program I also have worked with a variety of different auto CAD programing.

As the days came closer, to finding collages I wanted a place to be by my hometown and where my father began his work in mechanical engineering. That is why I choose Georgia Institute of Technology.

Furthermore, as life goes on, we should always "keep looking forward." The reason why I should be accepted in your school to is to pursue a dream that comes into reality. The reality I have been wanting to see is that women can do just as well, what men can do.
