It takes a certain kind of character to be a Yellow Jacket.

Every day presents new challenges and new opportunities to stand up for what is right. We will own our mistakes, learn from them, and always seek ways to improve. Georgia Tech will grow and evolve, but our commitment to cultivating character and preserving the public trust remains at the core of what it means to be a Yellow Jacket.
