Greetings from the Office of Admission!

My name is Tera and I am Assistant Director of Admission here at Georgia Tech. I will be blogging throughout the year letting everyone know what is going on in the Office of Admission. Some of you may have submitted your application for our October 1st application date and I am sure many of you are working hard trying to complete your application by November 1st. Regardless of what stage you are in, the best advice I could give you is to RELAX! I know applying to college can be stressful, but don’t forget to enjoy your senior year.

This is the time of year where our admission counselors are out and about visiting high schools and attending college fairs. When our travel is complete, we will be back in the office reading all the applications that have been submitted by students. Our first round of decision notifications will be released November 18th. We are here to help so if you have any questions about the process or your application, check Buzzport or contact our office.

One of the best things about my job is interacting with all the students and parents I get to meet along the way. Another perk is I get to travel! I love Atlanta but it’s nice to escape every once and a while. I just got back from Cincinnati, OH and Chicago, IL. I was a little concerned about the weather in the Midwest, but it was perfect fall weather the whole time I was there.

It’s Homecoming Week here at Georgia Tech so there will be all kinds of fun activities happening on campus. Our office participated in the Door Decorating contest. We participated in a category titled “Buzzin’ thru the French Quarter: Unmasking the Spirits of New Orleans.” We have a “Fun Committee” to make sure every once in a while we take a break from work.

I’m here to keep you updated on everything happening in our office so if you have any questions, feel free to comment on the blog!
