College Life Rating

Campus is very safe but it can be scary walking alone at night and is generally condoned. The GT police do their best to keep campus safe but there are occasional robberies. There are always fraternity parties, weeknights and weekends. The school does not excessively party, though, as many people are very serious about their academics. You can always venture into Atlanta if campus is not exciting enough for your taste.

College Life Rating

There's always something to do since GT is in the middle of Atlanta, though it does make it feel unsafe at night, especially if you're alone. Clubs and organizations are welcoming and plentiful. It's nice to know that you're in control of how much you're willing to give in effort to a club.
