What do you like best about your major?

I really love how Economics combines a bit of everything into one degree; some classes focus on problem solving skills, others on policy, some writing, and even psychology in Behavioral Economics. My degree offers me the ability to pursue my passions in the ways that I want to.

What do you love about liberal arts at Georgia Tech? 

I could not imagine going to Georgia Tech outside of the Ivan Allen College. Every person I interact with, peer or professor, has incredible interesting stories to tell and we can always find ways to connect with each other. The passion in the Ivan Allen College is unmatched with any other environment I've been a part of.
