Session Overview

FASET offers two session options for our Fall Transfer students--a Two Day session and a One Day session The  two day session is an overnight orientation session. This session will provide our incoming Transfer students an extended view of the culture and resources that exist at Georgia Tech. Transfer students will have more networking opportunities with multiple small group sessions, be able to participate in a campus organizational fair, and get an extended view of what to expect at Tech in the fall. 

FASET also offers a one day session on that offers a condensed version of community and resources available at Georgia Tech. This session still provides information on involvement opportunities, connections with incoming and current students, and various presentations from campus departments and academic advisors. 

Both options will provide you with important perspectives of Georgia Tech and what to expect when you step on campus in August.
