While the Georgia Tech Student Center is well known for planning events for students, it also has a lot to offer Georgia Tech employees.
Upcoming Events: Georgia Tech Night at Six Flags
Georgia Tech Night at Six Flags is one of several events put on by the Student Center and Student Center Programs Council that are open to faculty, staff, and their families. For employees who are Six Flags fans, there is no better time to visit the park than the annual Georgia Tech Night.
Six Flags over Georgia will be open exclusively to Georgia Tech students, faculty, staff, and guests on Friday, September 14, from 6 p.m. – 12 a.m.
Faculty, staff, alumni may purchase tickets for $30 per ticket here: http://tickets.studentcenter.gatech.edu/
Forward questions to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Stay tuned for information on Georgia Tech Night at The Aquarium, Flicks @ Tech, and more.
Georgia Tech employees may also find lifestyle balance during the day, at nights, and on weekends – all at the Student Center.
Employees who like to bowl, play billiards, enjoy ping-pong, and have gaming skills should check out Tech Rec, especially on Mondays when all games are free. Free Play Mondays run between 10 a.m. and 5 p.m., so take an early or late lunch and enjoy all Tech Rec has to offer. Be sure to bring your BuzzCard.
If music is more your scene, go to Under the Couch. Reserve the space for your own music or drop by to enjoy other people’s musical interludes. Under the Couch is open daily 10 a.m. to 6 p.m.
Got an artistic streak? Make art and meet people at Paper & Clay, Georgia Tech's on-campus creative studio.
Each semester a variety of classes are offered, including introductory and intermediate pottery, painting, knitting and sewing classes. Classes are open to the public and all fees are discounted for the Georgia Tech community (students, faculty, and staff, alumni). Classes are announced as scheduled on the Paper & Clay website.
