Tech Treks

Tech Treks are freshman orientation trips that take place in the summer. Designed to be a metaphor for entering the difficult academic rigor of Georgia Tech as well as the new frontiers of life on your own, this adventure will challenge you to do your best as well as ask you to look inward. Each day, a portion of our time will focus on an aspect of your time at Tech – your expectations, fears, and celebrations.
