I think it is difficult to say what the typical Georgia Tech student is like as there is a significant amount of diversity on the Tech campus. The student body includes a large number of minority as well as intentional students. While a significant portion of the students come from Georgia, there are students from all 50 states and scores of other countries outside the US. The diversity has created a melting pot of cultures and characters. If there is one common aspect of the Georgia tech student it is the common experience of attending the best and most challenging colleges in the world.

A typical Georgia Tech student is an introverted and awkward young adult that will typically avoid contact with others except for their close friends.

A nerd. Preferably a slightly awkward one. But not TOO awkward, because, awkward... A love of anime is also recommended for conversational purposes. The same goes for video games, reddit, and any aspects of computers.

We're really nerdy but in a good, lets share nerdiness with the rest of the world, way! We're also pretty open and accepting. Anybody who is looking at any sort of technical degree should look into it.

A Georgia Tech student is driven. Georgia Tech is an incredibly rigorous school and academics are top par. In order to make it in this environment, Tech students must focus on academics but also know how to have fun. Georgia Tech students play video games in their spare time, build computers, and celebrate their individuality. My college is unlike any college I have ever had the privilege to experience. We are a group of quirky kids, and we are proud of that fact.

Anyone that has an interest in the STEM fields that also loves to learn and be challenged should attend GT. It is a competitive, fast paced, and challenging place to be but you learn new things all the time!

A typical Georgia Tech student is a well rounded individual who knows how to prioritize their tasks well while still being able to relax and have fun.

Determined and smart. Willing to put in a lot of work for classes. After that, the typical student varies greatly. Many students participate in sports, while many others find their niche playing instrument at "Under the Couch." Some find their time spent most enjoyably in their dorm rooms with their friends playing video games. Others try and join as many clubs as possible. Regardless of the person, everyone has to work hard whether they want to or not in order to survive.

Georgia Tech is such a diverse campus with many international students, it is hard to describe a "typical Tech student". The type of person that should attend Georgia TEch should be smart, hard-working, organized, and should love the history and traditions of the school.

Smart, passionate about engineering, must be willing to work hard. Also usually nerdy and into nerdy things, but also down to have a good time in the process.

Georgia Tech is super diverse so this question's a bit hard, but the stereotypical GT student is a nerdy engineering student who likes to stay in his dorm room and play video games.

There's a huge population of Greek life (so, yes your typical fraternity/sorority kids) and GDIs (god damn independents) aka hipsters and normal kids. There's also a big international population, so you can immerse yourself in Chinese, Korean, Indian, French, German, Mexican, Colombian, etc. cultures very easily (most probably stick to their own groups a lot) - personality wise, interest wise, culture wise, we're all very different.

However, we're all passionate about one thing: education. Everyone is intelligent, super driven and willing to help each other out.
