  • When registering, please use the full, formal name of your institution and not a nickname, e.g. use "Georgia Institute of Technology," not "Georgia Tech" or "GA Tech." We generate an alphabetical listing of programs coming to the fair, and consistent naming creates an easier-to-follow listing. Acronyms can refer to multiple institutions, e.g. "GSU" = Georgia State University or Georgia Southern University.
