We’re also discussing the wait list on the admission blog this week, and we encourage you to share this information with students and families, as you see fit.

Virtual Campus Tour

We know it isn’t always possible for interested students to visit our campus, so to bring our campus to students, we have partnered with YOUVisit to create a virtual tour. With 360-degree views, elaborate photos, and quick videos, we truly believe the Tech spirit is evident in this virtual reality.

Summer Camp Opportunities

Do you think you would have had a better start in life had you known a little more about money and investing? Do you know high school students who would benefit from a week of financial training at Georgia Tech’s Scheller College of Business?
Encourage them to join us this summer — especially if they live locally or have family in the Atlanta area! Five sections are available beginning in June, and registration is open now.
Topics include: investment strategies, personal finance, hedging, and trading.
