Swing dancing lessons. Plays. Choir concerts. If you enjoy the arts, there are plenty of on-campus options for indulging in a bit of culture when you’re not in the classroom or lab.

Read on for seven ways to infuse the arts into your day-to-day life at Georgia Tech.

  1. Find out what’s at Ferst. Tech’s on-campus theater, the Ferst Center, offers all kinds of shows at a student discount. You can check out Kid Koala's Satellite Turntable Orchestra, an "ambient vinyl orchestra" show, for just $10. Or, get the holiday experience at the Moscow Ballet’s “Great Russian Nutcracker” on Dec. 14 for $35. Check out the Ferst Center website for tickets and more available shows. 
  2. Visit the black box. Did you know that Tech has a student-run theater group? Tickets are $8 for plays and $3 for improv shows. Next semester, check out Wiliam Finn's A New Brain, boom, Tribes, and more. Plus, if you buy a ticket for a Friday night show, you can get into the improve show afterward for free.
  3. Dance the night away. If swing dancing sounds fun, check out one of the Tech Dance Association’s monthly dances. The group offers free lessons before the event, and there is a student discount for tickets to the dance. Visit their website for a calendar of classes, social dances, and more swing dance events in Atlanta.
  4. Read up on student art. See what your peers are writing or drawing about in the latest copy of ERATO, Tech’s literary and art magazine. You can submit your poetry, prose, paintings, and more on their website, or pick up the latest issue twice a semester on the first floor of Clough Commons.
  5. Join the waltz. Even if you have two left feet, don’t miss out on the social dances held by the Ballroom Dance Club. These dances are held in the Student Center Ballroom, and you can gain access by becoming a member for a $55 fee. Membership also gets you access to weekly lessons and tickets to the club’s holiday events.
  6. Catch a choir concert. Thanks to Tech's two choirs, you have double the chances to listen to a group of beautifully blended voices. The Chamber Choir is a group of students who have auditioned and is known for singing classical music. The Tech Chorale is made up of singers from any part of the Tech community and are known for singing a mix of contemporary and classical music. For information on upcoming concerts, check out each choir’s website.
  7. Use your discounts. In addition to the on-campus options, your student status also gets you access to discounts at art spots across Atlanta (think 25 percent off, $5 tickets, and even free admission). When you use the Tech Arts Pass program, you can attend shows at venues including Dad’s Garage Improv Theater, the Atlanta Contemporary, and the Atlanta Ballet. To access the discounts, simply show your BuzzCard when purchasing tickets at participating organizations.
