Welcome!

The mission of the GTFWC  is friendship, scholarship, and service. We hope that you will enjoy discovering the programs, community service projects and interest groups we offer. Membership is open to all who want to join us in supporting the Georgia Tech community.

In addition to the scheduled events listed in the directory, we will announce fun pop-up events on our Facebook page. There is so much to do in Atlanta, and it’s always more fun with friends.  To keep up to date on all our activities and club news, please become a member of our private Facebook group. https://www.facebook.com/groups/GTFWC/

Please consider making a donation to our scholarship fund. Last year your contributions allowed us to award five scholarships totaling $10,000 to students who have a parent employed at a Georgia Tech. This year we hope to increase the amount of scholarships we award.

We look forward to seeing you at one of our events this academic year.

Go Jackets!
Sylvia Romeijn and Jeannie Lightsey
Co-Presidents
