Fall 2021 Move - In and Retreat


The Fall First-Year FASET Orientation program for first-year students is a full one-day program designed to acclimate new students to what it means to be a Yellow Jacket and welcome them to the Georgia Tech community. During the session, you will become better acquainted with the academic environment at Tech, the support services available, the rich traditions, and the campus itself. You will receive all of the information and resources to help you make a successful summer transition. In addition, you'll meet other new Tech students, campus student leaders, faculty, and administrators. You won't want to miss out on FASET. Please email transitionprograms@studentlife.gatech.edu or call 404-894-6897 with questions.
