Atlanta's symbol is the phoenix—in Egyptian mythology, the bird that rises from the ashes in rebirth. As the city emerged from the destruction of the Civil War, local leaders recognized that Atlanta and Georgia needed a school for teaching the skills that rebuilding would require. Georgia Tech was started for that reason, and the Institute and the city have grown together since then.
Today Atlanta is a thriving metropolis—an international city where students have access to a vibrant city life. It's a city with a strong economy, a high-tech core anchored by Georgia Tech, and a unique culture and feel of its own. In Atlanta, the people are friendly, and you'll find skyscrapers and major city amenities just around the corner from historic tree-lined neighborhoods. Georgia Tech is playing a vital role in an ongoing renaissance as the city of Atlanta comes into its own.
