Doug: We don’t know how to have fun and all we do is study, and that’s just not how it is. The difference between us and Georgia students is that we’re smart and still know how to have fun. They don’t have our style or our flair. And there’s everything to do in Atlanta. We have all the sports teams, the best places to go, the clubs. There’s nothing to do in Athens. They have bars. They party too much. We know how to balance it.

Brooke: That we can’t interact with a lot of people. That’s a lie. I have a lot of friends, and we do things with a lot of schools and a lot of churches. With all our networking, we get a lot done. It’s a misconception that we don’t function socially. We make fun of ourselves a lot. But we have to spend a lot of time studying. We can’t just spend all the time partying. Our attitude is different. A lot of people [at Georgia] can be spiteful.

Nik: People think we’re all nerds, but our campus is full of people who love football, who love sports. I’m a student from California, so Georgia Tech was one of the few schools in the country that had that perfect balance between athletics and academics — similar to schools like USC. We are smarter and better than those guys in Athens. We’re going to be their bosses one day and that’s all that matters. And we do have a lot of girls on campus. We get girls.
