Not only does FASET welcome new students to the Tech family and community, but also provides the opportunity for current students to get involved in that process. FASET is made possible by both our FASET Cabinet and FASET Leader Staff.
FASET Cabinet serves as an "Executive Board" of FASET and works on projects throughout the year to assist in the planning and facilitation of orientation and new student programs. Cabinet also mentors the FASET Leader Staff through relationship building, personal development, and social opportunities. Click here for more information on Cabinet.
The FASET Leader Staff is a volunteer position, a fact that makes Georgia Tech's orientation team unique from most schools around the country. FASET attracts the best and brightest leaders from all backgrounds to give each person going through orientation a sample of what wonderful diversity Georgia Tech has to offer. All Leaders are required to learn important campus information so they can provide the highest level of customer service to our incoming students and their guests during FASET. FASET Leader applications are available in the early Spring. Click here for more information on being a FASET Leader.
FASET Leaders interact directly with first-year, transfer, and exchange students and their parents and guests. They are trained to answer questions, welcome students, help with registration, provide important information, and assist new students with their transition into Georgia Tech. Leaders are chosen each year in the spring and work with the program throughout the summer.
Wreck Camp is a great opportunity for a student to spend their time volunteering to impact a new student's transition into the Institute. Upper-class students have the opportunity to impact an incoming student's transition into Georgia Tech by teaching them the school's spirit and traditions, all while building their own leadership skills.
Wreck Camp Directors are made up of a group of 6 student executive board members that work on projects throughout the year to plan and facilitate Georgia Tech's Extended Orientation program, Wreck Camp. Wreck Camp Directors also advise Wreck Camp Counselors on their implementation strategies throughout each Wreck Camp provided. The Wreck Camp Directors advise three different groups that allow for Wreck Camp to be successful, Recruitment and Retention, Training and Development, and Programming and Logistics.

Wreck Camp staff consists of student leaders with a variety of ages, majors, and involvements at Georgia Tech. These staff members are what makes the program successful and invigorating. Each staff member is placed on a committee to help build Wreck Camp and make it the exciting time it is for our incoming students. Click here for more information on Wreck Camp staff.
Connect is one of nine First-Year Leadership Organizations (FLOs) on campus and is designed to support student transitions into Georgia Tech. As a part of our close-knit community, Connectors will gain valuable leadership skills through event planning and team-building activities that facilitate strong connections.
First-year participants are selected at the beginning of the fall semester each year through the FLO common application. Our student advisors are past Connectors and apply for their positions during the spring semester for the following year.
