Connect is a First-Year Leadership Organization (FLO) designed to support student transitions into the Georgia Tech community. Members will gain valuable leadership skills via campus collaboration, event planning, and team-building activities to facilitate strong connections across campus. As a New Student and Transition Programs organization, Connect’s vision is to ensure that new students feel confident and possess the tools to succeed at Georgia Tech.

About Connect 

Connect is one of Tech's newest First-Year Leadership Organizations that focuses on building connections and creating community among the first-year Connect participants (Connectors) as well as the entire first-year class. We understand that transitioning to college and to a new community can be difficult, so we hope by being a member of Connect, we can help make Georgia Tech feel like home, build long-lasting friendships, and provide members with the tools and resources to become a successful leader on Georgia Tech's campus. 

As a First-Year Connector you can expect: 

  • Weekly meetings
  • Group bonding in both small and large group settings including fall and spring semester retreats
  • Event planning including a spring semester "Welcome Back" event and other smaller events decided by small groups that happen throughout the year
  • Individual and group leadership development
