FASET has been a Georgia Tech tradition since 1972. Orientation sessions are offered at the start of each semester for transfer students and during the summer for incoming freshmen (for freshmen starting in either summer or fall semester).
During orientation new students will receive academic advisement, register for their first semester of courses, and complete other business items. In addition, Georgia Tech faculty, staff, and administrators will discuss important campus services, student organizations, the undergraduate curriculum, and academic programs. Most importantly, students, parents, and guests will have an opportunity to meet and interact with current Tech students as well as to get to know other new students, parents, and guests.
