As a former employee of the Ritz-Carlton Hotel Company, I take great pride in learning from whom I consider to be paramount in providing exceptional customer service. And while I can’t comp a Georgia Tech student’s tuition if they are unhappy with a certain service I provide, I do have the opportunity each and every day to provide unparalleled customer service and an unforgettable experience for every Georgia Tech guest.

Sibs Day at Georgia Tech was created to encourage more family involvement in the spring semester. The Parents Program invited younger siblings, cousins, nieces, nephews, and family friends of undergraduate students (ages 7-16) to visit Georgia Tech and engage in activities that were educational, spirited, and fun. Participants enjoyed eating in a dining hall, learning more about Georgia Tech through educational workshops, cheered on the men’s basketball team, participated in a community service project, and bowled a few frames with Buzz.
