Join us for a Project Update!

The design phase for the Campus Center project is almost complete, and the Design-Build Team would like to invite the campus community to learn more about the exciting changes coming soon to campus. There will be three opportunities to learn more:

Wednesday, November 28 - 11am - Student Center Theater
Wednesday, November 28 - 5pm - Student Center Peachtree Room
Thursday, November 29 - 2pm - Student Center Piedmont Room

Each update session will last one hour. The entire campus community is encouraged to join us to learn more about how we are Creating the Next Campus Center. 

Help Create the Next Dining Experience - provide your feedback at AUDITIONS!

The teams from the Student Center and Dining Services are excited to offer the campus community a chance to choose dining concepts that will be included in the future Campus Center. Each week there will be a new concept to explore. 

In the last weeks of the semester, we will bring back your favorites from the semester so far. This week's feature is INDOI, the all vegetarian Indian food concept!

  • Showcase Georgia Tech's Accomplishments and be a Catalyst for Creative Expression
  • Foster Friendships and Bridge Across Disciplines, Cultures, and ???
  • Promote Leadership and Involvement
  • Activate the Outdoors
