Membership in student organizations is open to all Georgia Tech students who meet eligibility requirements set forth in Georgia Tech Student Rules and Regulations. However, certain club activities—especially sports and recreation programs—may require demonstrated ability and signed liability release forms. Clubs may charge dues to defray their expenses.
All student organizations must comply with the alcohol and drug policy of Georgia Tech. Organization presidents must sign the “Acknowledgement of Alcohol Policy” form and advisors must sign the “Role and Responsibility of the Advisor” form.
Students may obtain current club contacts and officers’ names at the Campus Labs Engage platform.
Center for Student Engagement
Volunteerism and community service have long been a part of the Georgia Tech tradition. The Center empowers and supports registered student organizations to catalyze belonging and create an engaging campus community. The Center has a strong history of developing and working closely with Georgia Tech’s outstanding student leaders. The staff that make-up the Center for Student Engagement are here to provide service and support.
More information at the Center for Student Engagement website.
Departmental and Professional Societies
Departmental and professional societies give students an opportunity to meet others in their field and to learn about programs pertinent to their studies. Most of the societies offer affiliation with national professional organizations as well as promote a relationship between the student and his or her academic department. Through these organizations, students discover the connection between the study of theory and its practical applications.
Fraternity and Sorority Life
The thirty-nine fraternities and sixteen sororities at Georgia Tech strive to provide a different type of relationship among their members. Bound together by common ideals and values, members work together to excel academically, enjoy the development of lifelong friendships rooted in shared experiences, and make the most of campus life while at Georgia Tech. Exciting social events, highly competitive intramural sports, and alumni networking are all benefits of Greek life. Students interested in joining the Greek community should contact the Collegiate Panhellenic Council (CPC), Interfraternity Council (IFC), the Multicultural Greek Council (MGC), or National Panhellenic Council (NPHC).
All new fraternity and sorority members experience a period of orientation that includes participation in leadership retreats, community service projects, weekly meetings to learn about the Institute and Greek history at Tech, and activities to build friendships among new and current members. Fraternity, sorority, governing council, and Institute policies all forbid hazing, and all chapters are committed to a membership education period that instills a sense of responsibility and commitment in all new members.
More information at the Fraternity and Sorority Life website.
Honor societies recognize excellence in academics, leadership, and/or extracurricular activities. Most majors and classes have associated honor societies.
Leadership Education and Development
Leadership takes place at all levels on the Georgia Tech campus — it’s not just for those in formal leadership positions. The Division of Student Life's Leadership Education and Development (LEAD) office gives participating students the opportunity to learn and practice effective leadership skills that can be applied to all areas of their personal and professional lives, now and in the future. The LEAD office offers a thoughtful and intentional series of academic, experiential, and co-curricular activities to help students prepare for leadership in a rapidly evolving global society.
LEAD programs, which include everything from one-on-one leadership coaching to living-learning communities, are designed to help students:
- Gain valuable insights into leadership potential
- Improve communication skills
- Learn how to get projects done in teams
- Understand what it takes to create change and inspire others
- Chart a leadership development pathway to real results within Georgia Tech and beyond
More information at the Leadership Education and Development website.

The council comprises representatives from student organizations; presidents are automatically members of the council. The council’s governing board and advisory board are student and faculty committees, respectively, that provide guidance and direction to the council and strive to promote the council’s objectives.
