Georgia Tech Minute: Here’s what’s happening on campus Georgia Tech Minute: Here’s what’s happening on campus…

Happy New Year … Welcome back to school! If nobody has said that to you yet, I will let you determine if it’s because of your particular school calendar or if you just work with unfriendly people.

Today, Aug. 20, was our first day of classes at Tech. It is always exciting to see the names from spreadsheets actually show up and move into their residence halls.

As our team heads back out on the road for recruitment travel, our goal is to serve as a resource for you about Georgia Tech and the college admission process, in general.

To that end, I wanted to share two items we hope will help you counsel students:

  1. Our new first-year class profile. This provides you with current and historical information on Georgia Tech admission and the academic performance of our students.
  2. Our College Selection Guide. We created this general resource to help you facilitate productive conversations and potentially reframe a student’s college search and selection experience.

We deeply appreciate what you do each day in your school community. If we can help in any way, please reach out to our communication (calm-unication) center.

Our staff is excited about having a great year ahead. Let’s do that together.

Go Jackets!
