We had a great Grandparents and Friends Day, April 13, 2024!


Georgia Tech Parent and Family Programs was excited to host our 3rd annual Grandparents and Friends Day!  For this event, grandparents, family members, and friends of Georgia Tech students are invited to campus to spend a Saturday together learning more about Georgia Tech history and traditions over lunch before cheering on the Yellow Jackets at a baseball game. Everyone makes family memories that will last a lifetime!

Grandparent and Friends Day registration is available on a first-come, first-served basis. The registration fee covers the costs of all activities including the baseball game, food, music, an entertaining speaker, parking, and transportation to and from the game.

NOTE: All family members and friends are welcome at all events, but ALL attendees must register as participants. Anyone can be a participant as long as they have a Georgia Tech student as a member of their group.
