Each year, Georgia Tech student-athletes are well represented in the community. Under the direction of Leah Thomas, Director of Total Person Support Services, every team participates in various community service projects. Whether it’s working with GTAA’s annual Michael Isenhour Toy Drive, the Special Olympics, Habitat for Humanity, the KIPP schools, or visiting local hospitals, Tech student-athletes are constantly getting involved and trying to make a difference.

    “At Georgia Tech, the day the cheering stops will still be a time of celebration.  An athlete’s playing days will end, but the Total Person Program ensures that Tech student-athletes will be prepared for their career and personal challenges ahead.”  Dr. Homer Rice, former Georgia Tech Athletics Director, originally conceived the Total Person concept on his belief that excellence is a result of a balanced life that encompasses academic excellence, athletic achievement, and personal well-being.  Georgia Tech’s Total Person Program encompasses the following areas of concentration:  Personal Growth & Emotional Stability, Academic Growth, Career Planning & Placement, Spiritual Growth, and Health & Nutritional Wellness.
