FASET is an acronym for “Familiarization and Adaptation to the Surroundings and Environs of Tech,” an orientation program for new students, their parents, families, and guests. FASET is a Georgia Tech required orientation for all incoming first-year students. The FASET Orientation is a full one-day program designed to orient students, parents, and guests to the Georgia Tech community. FASET is designed to acclimate new students and their guests to what it means to be a Yellow Jacket. During the session, you will become better acquainted with the academic environment at Tech, the support services available, the rich traditions, and the campus itself. You will receive all of the information and resources to help you make a successful summer transition.
Congratulations to all Fall 2021 admits!
