Special Events & Protocol


All incoming students are invited to attend New Student Convocation on Sunday, August 18, from 5:00 - 6:00 p.m. at the McCamish Pavilion. New Student Convocation serves as the Institute's official welcome to the campus community. In addition, the event will inspire our students to work to reach their highest potential while at Tech, acquaint new students with Georgia Tech's mission and traditions, and build camaraderie amongst the newest class of students.

Parents and guests are also invited and encouraged to attend and celebrate their student's entry into Georgia Tech. A special reception for parents and guests will be held immediately before the Convocation ceremony at the Georgia Tech Hotel & Conference Center. Parking will be available at the venue and a shuttle will provide transportation to the McCamish Pavilion. For more information, visit the Parents Program website.

Immediately Following Convocation

Students will attend a special welcome party sponsored by Auxiliary Services - Rock, Ramble, and Roll - which celebrates their first night as a Georgia Tech college student. Held in the Student Center, students may take a shuttle or walk over after the Convocation ceremony. This is a free event for new students.
