J.J. was in Atlanta Monday to visit Georgia Tech. "I can tell you I came away with a completely different mindset of Georgia Tech." J.J. liked Tech a lot before the visit and this trip shed new light on the program.
The campus was the one thing that surprised J.J. on his visit. He was impressed with the campus. "I just thought with Tech being in a big city that you wouldn't know the difference between the campus and downtown Atlanta." J.J. was impressed with how much green space he saw on campus.
