Meet College of Sciences Spring 2018 Graduates

Congratulations to our College of Sciences graduates; we can't wait to see what comes next for you!

They chose to study at Georgia Tech. Once here, they discovered that the academic rigor and leading-edge science research they’ve heard so much about is true – and demands their best. Some felt intimidated, but all succeeded.

Whether their journey started in Georgia or in another state, our graduates discover something else in the heart of Atlanta: the Tech experience, which involves forming new and lasting friendships, stretching out of their comfort zones, becoming part of the Georgia Tech family, and more.

This week, meet nine graduating students from the College of Sciences. Headed in various directions – graduate school, medical school, jobs, in the U.S. or overseas – each feels well-prepared for the next step in their professional life because of their Georgia Tech education.

“These students came to us needing our dedicated guidance and outstanding research and educational laboratories to help them achieve new heights of learning and uncover their powers of scientific investigation,” says College of Sciences Dean and Sutherland Chair Paul M. Goldbart. “Georgia Tech helped them achieve those goals, but we also helped them join a larger community – one that values friendship and collaboration as well as scholarship. Congratulations to our College of Sciences graduates; we can't wait to see what comes next for you!”
