Take a Tour

Visiting the College lets you gain a sense of what it's really like to study here and be part of our community. The Ivan Allen College of Liberal Arts is pleased to offer tours and information sessions every other week throughout the year. Special group tours can also be set up by contacting Elizabeth Miller (404.894.0513). Tours are led by our knowledgeable Ivan Allen College student ambassadors. Prospective students and parents will have the opportunity to meet current students, visit academic buildings, and enjoy a vibrant, up-close look of our six schools. Our sessions take place every other Friday in the Stephen C. Hall building on Bobby Dodd Way in the heart of campus.

Please note: Our tour and info session is for the Ivan Allen College with a larger focus on the undergraduate experience, but prospective graduate students are most welcome to participate. If you are interested in learning about admissions, housing, and Georgia Tech in general, we encourage you to supplement your visit with a Georgia Tech Undergraduate Admission Info Session, as well. If you are a prospective graduate student, we strongly recommend you arrange a meeting with your intended department to supplement our info session and tour and to gain the most relevant information.

Shadow Day

Friday, January 28th and Friday, April 1st, 2022

Shadow Day is an opportunity for prospective juniors and seniors to test their fit as a Liberal Arts student at Georgia Tech. This event has been such a success that the College has made Shadow Day an annual event. It is produced by Elizabeth Miller, Director of Enrollment and Student Affairs, and the Ivan Allen Student Ambassadors.

We want to emphasize that there is no other program like Shadow Day at Georgia Tech. While there are other visitation programs offered, the Shadow Day event is unique. Our focus is about providing you an inside look into your major and life as a Liberal Arts student at Georgia Tech. The entire day you will be surrounded by Liberal Arts students, faculty, and staff eager to answer your questions and to make your visit as productive and worthwhile as possible. If you are traveling from out-of-state and want more than a day's worth of activities, call us and we can work with you to plan a schedule.

Please note: We are still in the process of determining if this event will be offered in person or virtual. Stay tuned.
