Community Life

Who We Are

At the Georgia Tech Catholic Center, community is at the center of everything we do. We aim to cultivate fellowship through student-led activities, enriching student life and providing a place to call home. We host social events ranging from bonfires to game nights to outdoor sports, and we participate in Georgia Tech events such as homecoming, football games, and intramurals. Are you passionate about creating a vibrant, energetic environment for fellow Catholics at Tech and in the Atlanta area? Do you want to share your journey at Georgia Tech with a diverse group of people you will soon call friends? Consider getting involved in community life!
