KNIT Mentorship Program
Organized by the New Student and Sophomore Programs, the KNIT (Knowledge, Nurture, Interaction, and Tradition) creates one on one relationships between incoming students and uperclassmen mentors who assist with their transition into Georgia Tech.  They focus on building knowledge through academic support and advice, nurturing the personal growth of incoming students by providing them leadership opportunities, increasing interactions with one on one mentoring, and building engagement with the important Tech traditions.

Ramblin' Reck Club's Mini-500
The Mini 500 is an annual tricycle race around Peters Parking Deck that occurs on the Friday afternoon before the homecoming football game. It is one of Georgia Tech’s most unique traditions put on by Ramblin’ Reck Club since 1969. Teams are comprised of seven members: 4 to take turns as the driver and three on the pit crew.  This year, thanks to the Parents Fund, a chip timing system was added to the tricycles to increase safety and help increase the involvement of the student body.

 

Moon Festival
Hosted by the Vietnamese Student Association, the Moon Festival is a celebration of Southeast Asian culture.  It features food, games, dance performances, fashion shows, a traditional lion dance.  It is free for students and is the primary cultural showcase for the Southeast Asian Student Association.  

 

Step Show
The National Pan-Hellenic Council’s Georgia Tech Homecoming Step Show features performances from 9 NPHC organizations, five fraternities and four sororities. The participating fraternities and sororities presented a unique 10-minute stepping/acting performance, each with its own creative theme.
