Best advice for an incoming student: 
If you feel like someone has it all together, you probably don't know them well enough. Georgia Tech is hard, but what's cool is that even though we might not have it all together, we're all in it together. So don't be afraid to ask for help. My favorite part about Tech is that the competition is so healthy and people around you are happy to see you succeed. Welcome to the Yellow Jacket family, I hope you find your home at Tech like I did!

Why should you come to Wreck Camp?: 
Wreck Camp will introduce you to student leaders who are passionate about welcoming you to Georgia Tech and helping make your transition process easier. It's also an amazing way to make close friends even before you start college! Before I got involved with Wreck Camp, I didn't understand how people could become close friends in 3 days - but, Wreck Camp will do that, and so much more, for you. Going to college can be scary because almost everything is changing. Wreck Camp pushes you to open up, accept your vulnerabilities and be proud of who you are. More than anything, come to meet the most passionate and fun family at Tech! We can't wait to meet you!
