Welcome to Georgia Tech and the Yellow Jacket family! We’re your Student Government Association (SGA) President and Executive Vice President, Rohan Sohani and Grace Swift.

We’re so excited to have you here and advocate for your needs throughout the year along with the entire SGA team. You’re going to do amazing things at Tech and beyond, so make sure to take advantage of the opportunities Tech presents you and this year will be one of growth, learning, and amazing experiences.

SGA does a lot for students, so read on to learn a little more about the group that represents you!

SGA works to represent the student opinion to the Georgia Tech administration, start our own initiatives, fund and empower student organizations, and generally enrich the student experience.

Some areas of interest include campus services such as dining and buses, sustainability, arts, Georgia government relations, and more! SGA consists of three branches: Executive, Legislative, and Judicial.

The Executive branch is composed of the President, Executive Vice President, and the Executive Cabinet, as well as committee chairs and committee members. Committees each work on a unique niche of campus, and they are a great place to start if you want to get involved at a low time commitment level. You can apply through Tech’s Engage page, gatech.campuslabs.com/engage!

The Undergraduate House of Representatives (UHR) is the Legislative branch.

UHR consists of representatives for each class, each academic major, and special interest groups like transfer and international students, which all work together to directly represent student needs.

Finally, the Judicial branch is the Undergraduate Judiciary Cabinet (UJC), whose two main purposes are to hear cases of non-academic misconduct that involve undergraduates and interpret SGA policy to determine if any actions of the other two branches are unconstitutional. If you are interested in any of the three branches, apply to join at sga.gatech.edu/getinvolved/.

No matter if you choose to get involved with SGA or not, please know that we are here to support you and your various communities.

Whether you have an issue with a professor, or an idea about a way to improve the GT registration system, or need help with a housing issue, or anything else, please don’t hesitate to reach out!

First-year students are typically the most present and engaged within our campus and your insight is truly invaluable. We compiled a list of helpful resources on our website here, so sga.gatech.edu/resources/ should be a good place to start. Our First-Year Leadership Organization, FreShGA, compiled a document with additional useful resources, which can be accessed via the Linktree on our Instagram page at @gtsga.

You can contact us by emailing [email protected]ch.edu or reaching out to us on social media. Our Instagram handle is @gtsga and our Twitter is @gatechsga. You can also post your questions on the r/gatech Reddit page or reach out to us directly at u/GT_SGA. Follow our Instagram for updates on our advocacy!

Good luck with your first year as a Yellow Jacket and we can’t wait to meet you!
