Admitted Freshman

As an admitted freshman, your perspective on the campus visit will change as you try to envision spending the next several years of your life at Georgia Tech. The goal of our admitted freshman events and information sessions is to provide you with information specific to your needs, to discuss next steps, and to help you to see why Georgia Tech is the right choice for you!

Please note: the reservation form will ask how many guests are in your party. The number of guests should NOT include the student, as the student is the primary registrant for the event.
