Georgia Tech boasts eight interns at the Gold Dome

The 2016 legislative session of the Georgia General Assembly kicked off downtown at the State Capitol on Jan. 11. Each spring, through the Georgia Legislative Internship Program (GLIP), students from across the state are selected to serve full time as interns to legislators, legislative committees, or legislative offices. This year, Georgia Tech is proud to have eight undergraduate GLIP interns from a variety of majors and backgrounds working in offices in and around the Gold Dome for the 2016 session.

To demonstrate their appreciation for ongoing support from state lawmakers, Georgia Tech students, faculty, and staff will convene for the annual Georgia Tech Student Day at the Capitol on Monday, February 1. Learn more and sign up >
