Tired of fast food joints, chain restaurants and tourist traps on your college road trip? Well, if you're planning a visit to the Georgia Institute of Technology in Atlanta, you can dine out on these recommendations -- from the best tacos and pizza or Thai and Italian to solid Southern fare like fried chicken and sweet tea. In the best tradition of southern hospitality, Georgia Tech Admissions has played favorites and offered their seal of approval for the place for that special evening out, breakfasts with biscuits, a steak place called "Bones", and a BBQ joint that serves "Tomminator tater tots" -- which we are definitely intrigued by. See all of their favorites here.
Rick Clark, Director of Undergraduate Admission at Georgia Institute of Technology joins us this month to answer five questions about one of the country's leading public research universities. GT or Georgia Tech, as it's known, opened its doors in 1888 with two buildings -- one for classrooms, the other housing a foundry, forge, boiler room and engine room. It was the culmination of a plan spearheaded by two former Confederate officers to found a school that would move the south from an agrarian past into the industrial age.
