Senior Raunac Khandaker grew up in Denver.
But when it came time for college, she moved with both her parents to Dacula, Georgia, outside Atlanta so she could attend Georgia Tech.
Why Tech? Because, she says, it was one of the nation’s top engineering schools and specifically has one of the best civil engineering programs.
Watch the audio slideshow above to hear more of Khandaker’s story and her experiences at Tech — which will continue now that she’s been accepted to the BS/MS program in the School of Civil and Environmental Engineering.
