Connected but Protected




While this isn’t the first week of college most imagined, we’re doing our best to safely provide you with rich opportunities to find connection and feel welcome at Georgia Tech. With the health of our Yellow Jackets in mind, most elements of the Week of Welcome will be virtual or have virtual alternatives, self-guided, or small group activities done with hall groups to minimize contact. Additionally, our custodial teams have outlined a comprehensive plan to keep common surfaces clean throughout the week of welcome and beyond. All residents will receive a wellness kit in their rooms with a mask, hand sanitizer, thermometer and more to support their health. Residents will also have access to a mobile app to help space out move-in and dining opportunities with specific time slots.
