Why GT 1000 & 2000?

GT 1000 & 2000 classes are small and discussion-based, offering first-year students a unique opportunity to take a class where they learn about the history, resources, and traditions of Georgia Tech, meet and bond with other new students, work closely with faculty and administrators, and learn important skills critical to their success at Georgia Tech. 

The goal of all GT 1000 & 2000 classes is to support incoming Tech students and to help them to have a smooth, successful transition to Georgia Tech.
