One College of Sciences student is a rising fourth-year, but she spent some of her non-research hours helping incoming first year students navigate the newness of Georgia Tech. Another became the Georgia Tech hockey team’s first woman player in school history. (Yes, Georgia Tech has a hockey team.) Yet another is helping a professor build an organic meteor database.
