Student Testimonials

Shavonne Henry, Mechanical Engineering

"In addition to mentoring, the center is also involved in community outreach and recruitment and gives minority students the tools and resources that they need to be successful in a challenging academic institution. It also offers financial support through scholarships. I am a LSAMP scholar and a Caterpillar Scholar recipient through the College of Engineering. The financial support has been extremely helpful. It's scary when you find out that you cannot go back to school because your family can no longer assist you. With CEED's help, I successfully completed my junior year of college WITH a GPA boost."

Kyle Woumn, Computer Science

"CEED has impacted my journey throughout Georgia Tech tremendously. There were those times when I was letting school get the best of me, and CEED was there to give me great encouragement and motivation to power through. In addition, they have provided me with countless opportunities including scholarships and internships that I will forever be thankful for. Thanks CEED for all that you do!"

"Along with scholarships, research opportunities, and mentor and advising the CEED staff has has treated me like family. They have provided with me insights on resources to help make my journey through school and my transition into industry as smooth as possible."


Alexis Coates, Mechanical Engineering

"CEED has been an instrumental part of my life, years before my undergrad even began. Through the experiences, knowledge, and network that I gained through this program, opportunities opened themselves up to me. With assistance from CEED, I was awarded scholarship money that made it possible for me to afford attending Georgia Tech. My time at Tech, thus far, has only been enhanced by my experiences with CEED. The women in the office genuinely care about every student that walks through our doors, where ever that may be. Anywhere the CEED Team is located is home for me." 


​Fabien Durand, Mechanical Engineering

"The CEED staff has been a great influence in my academic career, and I will be forever grateful for their support and the countless times that they put me back on the right track and gave me a moral boost. They have given me guidance, moral support, motherly friendship and financial support. They are amazing people that do amazing things to help students achieve their dreams. I am sure they have touched many more lives on a personal level, as they have mine. I consider them my guardian angels at Georgia Tech because they always watch out for me and make sure I am getting everything I need. I cannot thank them enough for all they have done for me. They do great work."
