Representing Georgia Tech
All students representing Georgia Tech in co-curricular activities, such as athletic competition, band concerts, or conferences, must be eligible for participation according to Georgia Tech Student Rules and Regulations. If a student attends a co-curricular event (competition, conference, etc.) and will be absent from class, the student can obtain an Institute-approved excuse. For Institute-approved absences, the organization advisor or a representative of the department sponsoring the function makes the request to the Registrar's office.
The following list provides departments and organizations which provide leadership and engagement opportunities for students. This list is not exhaustive and it is recommended students speak with staff in any of these areas for additional suggestions on getting involved and engaged at Georgia Tech.
Office of Leadership and Civic Engagement
Leadership and Civic Engagement is located on the second floor of the Student Center Commons in Room 2211. The Center is staffed by students and staff who serve as resources for students and student organizations. The Center also houses numerous student organizations and provides computers, meeting space, and resources for organization leaders.
Office of Greek Affairs
The office oversees fraternities and sororities that involve students in leadership development, philanthropic, athletic, educational, and social activities. Many of the organizations maintain housing facilities that provide living, dining, meeting, and social facilities.
Student Center Programming Council (SCPC)
A part of the Student Center, the Student Center Programs Council is a student led programming community that brings more than 50 exciting programs to campus each year. These programs can be entertaining, thought-provoking, educational, energizing, or anything in between. Signature events throughout the year include Georgia Tech Night at Six Flags and Sting Break.
Student Government Association (SGA)
The purpose of the Student Government Association is to enhance the quality of student life at Georgia Tech by providing student participation in the governance of the Institute.
The mission of the office is to provide the Institute and Atlanta communities with news, information and a forum for the exchange of ideas, while providing an educational learning environment for students interested in creative expression and media management. Student Media is home to five publications and the Georgia Tech radio station (WREK 91.1 FM). Publications include the Blueprint (yearbook), Erato (literary magazine), The North Avenue Review (an openforum magazine), the Technique (newspaper), and T-Book (online magazine).
