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.
Who could forget Humphrey Bogart’s famous last line in Casablanca? Bogart’s character Rick Blaine gave us so many memorable quotes within the 1942 romantic classic, but his final one resonates most with me in reference to both my personal and professional life. While planning events here at Georgia Tech, I am continually inspired by how the development of “beautiful friendships” can significantly impact the outcome of my events and the guests’ experiences.
Since we know it’s helpful to receive clarification when changes occur, The Event Coordinators’ Network had the pleasure of hosting Sharon Myers, campus space coordinator, at a Q&A session on Wednesday, July 22.
An intimate group of 20 Event Coordinators’ Network members had the opportunity to visit the College Football Hall of Fame in downtown Atlanta on May 20, 2015.
Originally residing in South Bend, Indiana, the Hall moved to our beloved Atlanta in fall 2014 to a new 95,000 square-foot facility, of which 50,000 square feet are available for event space.
