Are you ready for the Fall 2024 Week of Welcome? Week of Welcome is August 12-18 and you’ll find all the details here.

Georgia Tech invites students to move in early to get more acquainted with campus, their peers, and Atlanta in the week before classes start. The goal is to have a stress-free transition to college with a week of fun and engaging opportunities before starting a career at Georgia Tech. Follow this year’s fun on Instagram and Facebook!

All Week of Welcome activities, as well as maps, resources, and other helpful items, are available through Guidebook.

Connect to Community

The week will be filled with opportunities to meet and connect with your fellow Yellow Jackets. Look for nightly social events like the Yellow Jacket MegaMixer, dance party, outdoor movie night, and more. Residents will have several chances to build community with their hallmates. Additionally, there will be programs and events throughout the week for transfer, upperclass, and graduate students to enjoy, as well as events for specific groups.

Explore Campus & Resources

This is the perfect time to get to know our beautiful campus and all the helpful resources we have to offer. Plan to attend helpful workshops from student groups and campus departments on everything from time management and nutrition to how to play American football or build robots. Students should also make time for the self-guided Traditions Tour that guides you to the most notable places at Georgia Tech. Beyond campus, there will be shuttles to nearby stores and Atlanta points of interest to help you further explore and find what you need.
