Welcome Parents and Guests!
FASET is not just for students, it's for families as well! Whether you have been on the Georgia Tech campus before or not, there is always something to learn, something to experience, and someone to meet. The Parent and Guest Orientation Program is an excellent opportunity for parents to become familiar with Georgia Tech. Parents continue to play a role of the utmost importance in their college student's development and education, and Parent and Guest Orientation helps parents and guests create realistic expectations for their student and offers a great deal of information to assist both parents and students in making the transition to Georgia Tech.
Please note for Parents & Guests who have attended FASET before, this coming summer will look different than years before as our sessions will be online in a virtual format.
Parent and Guest Orientation runs separately from the student program, focusing on a variety of topics of interest to parents of new students. Throughout the program, you will have the opportunity to:
- Attend presentations on academic success, financial matters, housing, parking, campus safety, and much more
- Attend departmental orientation/academic advising session with your student
While attending FASET is not required, it is a great way for parents and guests to learn ways to support your student through their various experiences they will encounter at Tech. NSTP strongly believes that family participation during your student's transition to college is invaluable, and we hope you will choose to attend FASET.
Parents and guests will not be allowed to attend class registration with their student.
Please only attend the live sessions that coincide with your student's orientation session.
