During the academic year, you can find many clubs and organizations tabling on Tech Walkway, and on Wednesdays, you can grab a bite to eat at the Farmer’s Market. There are many great dining options to try while you are on campus. Some popular highlights include the Student Center Food Court, North Avenue Dining Hall, and Brittain Dining Hall.

While you are visiting Georgia Tech, you should allow for some time to explore the great city of Atlanta. There are many ways to explore Atlanta prior to or after your Georgia Tech visit!
For visitors that want to spend some time outdoors, recommendations include exploring the Beltline, a walking and bike path around the city that was designed as part of Ryan Gravel’s Georgia Tech master’s thesis. Other outdoor activities includes exploring the Atlanta Botanical Gardens or hiking at Stone Mountain.
It can get pretty hot in Atlanta, so it is also a great idea to spend some time inside cooling off. About a mile from campus, you can visit the World of Coca-Cola, National Center for Civil and Human Rights and Georgia Aquarium.
If you are a sports fan, you can stop by the College Football Hall of Fame (is also located in Downtown Atlanta) or take in a professional sports game, like an Atlanta Braves baseball game, or an Atlanta United soccer game while you're in town.
You will definitely not go hungry while you are here in Atlanta. Ponce City Market is a great place for the whole family to find options that they like. The Ponce City Market Food Hall has over 20 different options to choose from! There are many great options for BBQ and southern comfort food choices (Take a look at some of Georgia Tech’s admission counselors’ restaurant recommendations).
