The Southern Social was held on the evening of Friday, September 30, 2016, at the Georgia Aquarium in the Arctic Room. The event's goal was to engage with the Parent's Board, Parent & Family Programs donors, and any potential donors during the very busy Family Weekend at Georgia Tech.
Sibs Day at Georgia Tech was created to encourage more family involvement in the spring semester. The Parents Program invited younger siblings, cousins, nieces, nephews, and family friends of undergraduate students (ages 7-16) to visit Georgia Tech and engage in activities that were educational, spirited, and fun. Participants enjoyed eating in a dining hall, learning more about Georgia Tech through educational workshops, cheered on the men’s basketball team, participated in a community service project, and bowled a few frames with Buzz.
