Incoming First Year Students

“Because of OMED’s Challenge program, I met some of my closest friends and earned a 4.0 GPA during my first semester at Tech. I am successful today because of OMED and its staff.”

— Kyle Woumn, alumnus, School of Computer Science

  • Challenge – Helps prepare incoming freshmen for a successful college career, both academically and socially, during a five-week intensive summer program.
  • Edge – Offers support from upperclassmen who serve as mentors to assist first-year students academically and socially. 

Challenge, a five-week academic preparation program, introduces incoming freshmen to the Georgia Tech experience over the summer, providing the skills necessary to succeed as undergraduates.
