Campus Life

SGTC has a wide variety of student activities!Here at South Georgia Technical College, we know that you not only want a quality technical education, but you also want to experience the real college life. That is why we offer on-campus housing and many student activities. South Georgia Tech is one of only two technical colleges in the state of Georgia to offer on-campus housing and a full-service cafeteria. Private rooms and semi-private rooms are available. So, if you are looking for a home away from home, you will find it here.

After class, there are many opportunities for students to gain vital leadership skills and socialize with other students by being involved in Phi Beta Lambda (PBL), Student Government Association (SGA), Skills-USA, DECA, Veterans’ Club  and the National Technical Honor Society (NTHS). Most organizations offer the chance to compete with other technical college students at local, state and national levels.

You won’t get bored at South Georgia Tech. There are many fun events to keep students entertained. The SGA schedules different activities on campus, such as movie night, student/faculty softball, blood drives, outdoor spring fling, and other student-related activities. Also, the Campus Life department offers intramural sports throughout the year. You can find students participating in flag football, basketball and softball. Also, students enjoy the softball field, tennis courts, weight room, and gymnasium between classes.

Speaking of sports, did you know that South Georgia Technical College is the premier technical college to compete in the Georgia Junior College Athletic Association? Angela_Tompkins-24

and the Lady Jets, SGTC’s intercollegiate basketball teams, are also members of the National Junior College Athletic Association. The men’s team was established in 2001 and the women’s team was established in 2004. Both have reached national rankings in the NJCAA.

If you need a little rest and relaxation after all of this activity you can retreat to Hicks Hall which houses a newly renovated student center and lounge area. You can play cards, billiards, work out in the exercise room, or just hang out and relax.

For more time to yourself, relax by the fully stocked fishpond on the south end of the campus or have a picnic in Tom Gailey Park. The choice is yours!
