Well-being Events in March

well-being days image

Instead of the traditional one-week off Spring Break this year due to the Covid-19 pandemic, Georgia Tech has scheduled two mid-semester break days on March 16 and March 24.  The goal of these days is to provide students with an opportunity to take a break from their academic studies and relax, recharge, reboot for the remainder of the semester.

In an effort to provide students opportunities to engage with their peers and focus on self-care during these break days, many campus departments are offering virtual and in-person programs.  Students attending in-person events are reminded that face-coverings and social distancing is required at these events and many will require time-ticket registration to provide as safe of an environment as possible.  Students are also encouraged to start these days with a daily symptom check and make sure to participate in the Institute's asymptomatic Covid-19 testing program before and after participating in in-person events.
