Shadow Day: Experience Liberal Arts at Georgia Tech

2025 Shadow Day | Dates Coming Soon

Welcome to the Ivan Allen College of Liberal Arts!

Spend the day with us. Shadow Day is an opportunity for both admitted students (first-year and transfer) and prospective juniors and seniors to test their fit as a Liberal Arts student at Georgia Tech.

We want to emphasize that there is no other program like Shadow Day at Georgia Tech. While there are other visitation programs offered, the Shadow Day event is unique! Our focus is about providing you an inside look into your major and life as a Liberal Arts student at Georgia Tech.

Here's What People are Saying About Shadow Day:

“I spent an hour walking around with a first-year liberal arts student. I fired question after question at her and each time instead of giving me rehearsed responses, she shared her honest opinion. She told me about her classes, her goals, her social life, and how Georgia Tech had played a huge role in all of that. I discovered a whole new side of Georgia Tech that I hadn’t even known existed. That day I went home and gushed to my parents about how I could see myself at Tech!" - Daphne, Ivan Allen College Ambassador, Shadow Day 2023

“My senior year Shadow Day is what solidified my decision to come to Tech; I felt comfortable in the environment yet challenged by what it had to offer.” - Addie, Ivan Allen College Ambassador, Shadow Day 2022

“The [Shadow Day] programming was tailored to my child’s interests and far better than any other school visits we’ve had.” - Parent, Shadow Day 2020

”Shadow Day is one of the best opportunities for students interested in enrolling in the IAC" - Allie-Grace, Ivan Allen College Ambassador, Shadow Day 2022

"As a high school student, Shadow Day was the final push to get me to decide to attend Georgia Tech. It was really impactful to hear from current GT students about the Liberal Arts College and picture myself here. Now, years later, I have volunteered with Shadow Day, mentored younger PUBP students as a TA, gushed about Georgia Tech Liberal Arts as VP of Recruitment for my sorority, and encouraged younger students from my high school to come here. " - Dani, Shadow Day 2023
