Q: What is an RSO?
A: An RSO, or a Registered Student Organization, is a group (created by students, for students) that was designed to fulfill a specific mission at Georgia Tech and has met the requirements to be formally recognized by SGA. We have 10 categories of RSOs at GT and with around 550+ RSOs, you're sure to find your niche!
Q: How do I participate in the Organization Fairs?
A: This year, the Winter Organization Fairs will be taking place entirely online using a platform called Gatherly. Gatherly allows users to move within virtual two-dimensional conference and event spaces. On Gatherly, you can move your personal icon around 2D maps to engage with different "virtuall tables" at the Winter Organization Fair and interact with other virtual attendees.

Q: Wait, what is this about "GOLD Route credit" if I attend an org fair?
A: Designed for students who hope to hold a leadership position and for students who are active as members of officers in one (or more!) or Georgia Tech's 550+ Student Organizations, the GOLD Route program equips participants with the skills and knowledge they need to make meaningful change in their student leadership roles and in their leadership beyond GT. If you're a first-year or transfer student looking to get involved OR if you're a returning student looking to deepen your engagement on campus, the GOLD Route is a great path to guide you on your journey. Attending either of the Org Fairs earns you credit toward completion of the GOLD Route. Click here for more info.
