Latest News From the College of Sciences

  • Kate Napier, B.S. in Physics

    Katherine Avery “Kate” Napier had wanted to attend Georgia Tech ever since she was in elementary school. Growing up, she attended summer robotics and swim camps at Tech and participated in annual dance performances at the Ferst Center for the Arts.  “I applied to Georgia Tech for early admission,” she recalls. “I still remember opening the acceptance email surrounded by my family. I never applied to another college. It was an easy decision.”

  • Biology Graduate Continues Her Family's Georgia Tech Tradition

    When Emma Siegfried graduates this weekend, she’ll be the latest in a line of family members who have been attending Georgia Tech for more than 100 years.

  • Melat Hagos, B.S. in Earth and Atmospheric Sciences

    After arriving in the U.S., Melat Hagos's family did not own a computer, but her mother took her to the local library every day so she could read and find information for homework. “This led me to love reading and kept me interested in school,” she says.

  • Erin Gawron, Ph.D. in Chemistry

    Erin Lea Gawron came to Georgia Tech after teaching high school science for 10 years. The experience taught her valuable skills that she used as she pursued her graduate degree. “I usually encourage undergraduates to work for a couple of years before going to graduate school,” Erin says. Having work experience helped Erin think of graduate school as more of a job than going to “school.” This framework, she says, helped her succeed in tough situations; she handled hurdles with poise because of coping skills she learned in her former workplace.
