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 powered by PlayFair, a silent disco, 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.

A Focus on Student Community Building


Week of Welcome events give students a chance to build strong connections with friends and community, so they are open only to students. Opportunities for parents and loved ones to learn more about campus through New Student and Transition Programs and Parent & Family Programs will be offered virtually throughout the summer and will have limited in-person programming August 14 – 16. Visit the Parent & Guest FASET Canvas page here for more details on the parent-friendly events.
