Student Author OverviewWhat's this?

View student contributors

It is highly recommended that all students attend the home football games, and also the basketball and baseball games when possible. Tech consistently fields one of the country's best baseball teams and has garnered four national college football championships, the last of which came in 1990. Tech's basketball program has seen the likes of Stephon Marbury, Kenny Anderson, Matt Harpring, Mark Price, and Dennis Scott come through its college program to eventually play in the NBA. The baseball team has had perhaps the most consistent success of all the sports programs and has produced modern big-league players such as Nomar Garciapara, Kevin Brown, and Jason Variteck. Sporting events are always great fun for students to attend, and they really complete the college experience for the Tech student.

In addition to varsity sports, intramural sports are made available for all students and offer great social opportunities for fun and games. IM sports are very popular among the students and include basketball, ultimate Frisbee, racquetball, and flag football. Club sports-sports teams that do not have enough support to achieve varsity status but are still funded by the Student Government Association-are also available. Club teams travel to other colleges and play against other club teams in their respective sports. Club sports at Georgia Tech include rugby, rowing, lacrosse, and wrestling.

School Spirit
School pride is rampant at Georgia Tech. The Swarm is the cheering section at sporting events of students wearing yellow T-shirts. These students are faithful supporters of Georgia Tech, and their pride has been recognized by several publications. The University of Georgia Bulldogs and the Auburn Tigers are the biggest, fiercest rivals in sporting events of Georgia Tech. The Florida State game is also a very hostile game full of collegiate rivalry.
Getting Tickets
You will need tickets for games. For all athletic events, students pay for tickets in their tuition. For football season, students get vouchers and then turn them in for tickets. For basketball, students simply claim tickets online and they are given out on a first-come-first-served basis. For all other sports, students can simply get tickets at the game with their Buzzcard, since buying tickets isn't competitive.
