"The mission of the Freshman Activities Board is to provide excellent programming for the first year class, while at the same time developing our first year members into leaders of the Georgia Tech Community."
Freshman Activities Board or FAB was founded in 2002. It is a Department of Housing Student Organization that is funded through resident student activity fees. It is also recognized as a chartered student organization through the Office of Student Engagement in the Division of Student Life.
We strive to build leadership in our members through planning and promoting social events and services that are geared towards creating a shared first year experience. Our team of professionals and student executive leaders emphasize teamwork, communication skills, budget management, planning, and marketing techniques to engage the first year students at Georgia Tech.
Although the name Freshman Activities Board implies only a devotion to the first year class. FAB's impact on campus reaches far beyond the Freshman Experience Program. With 30 bright, enthusiastic, first year students and a pretty sizeable budget provided by the Department of Housing Freshman Experience Program, FAB sets out to make Georgia Tech a better place. Members are developed into campus leaders as they gain experience planning successful events, interacting in a teamwork environment, and collaborating with other organizations.
