Challenge Counselor Applications Close

The Challenge Counselors serve as role models and peer mentors to incoming first-year students and assistants to OMED staff throughout our signature summer academic preparation program.

To apply to be a Challenge counselor, visit:

Challenge is OMED’s signature summer five-week academic residential program for incoming first-year students. In Challenge, students are immersed in the Georgia Tech environment: they live in on-campus housing, take classes provided by Georgia Tech professors, and participate in cultural, professional, and academic workshops and activities.

Challenge is designed to help prepare incoming first-year students for a successful college career by equipping them to address the 7Cs: Computer Science, Chemistry, Calculus, Communication, Career development, Cultural competency, and Community Service. Challenge participants develop a strong Georgia Tech peer, resource, and corporate network before entering into their first academic year. The program also offers students enhanced skills over other first-year students by illuminating challenges they may face at Georgia Tech and by providing an arsenal of tools to excel.

As of now, Challenge 2021 is scheduled for June 26 – July 30.  We will continue to monitor the global health crisis and we will adhere to all institutional, University System of Georgia, and state guidelines in the best interest of public health and safety.
