Amid midterms, exams and projects, some Georgia Tech students may overlook all the cultural and arts opportunities that exist outside their dorms around Atlanta. For the third year, the Woodruff Arts Center is making it easier for students to enjoy its offerings with a night dedicated to Tech students enjoying its various offerings for free.
On Thursday, Sept. 27, students may attend this semester's Georgia Tech Night at the Woodruff Arts Center and visit the High Museum and enjoy a performance at the Alliance Theatre. Due to recent negotiations between the Atlanta Symphony Orchestra and the Musicians' Union, there will be no symphony performance, but there will be an opportunity for a backstage tour of the ASO. Alliance Theatre performances are ticketed, and tickets are available upon arrival at the Arts Center on a first-come, first-served basis.
Stingers will run between the Student Center and the Arts Center from 5:30 p.m. to 8 p.m., with a final departure from the Arts Center to campus at 10:30 p.m. Parking is available at the Woodruff Arts Center parking deck, or students may take MARTA to the Arts Center transit station.
Students will also have the opportunity to purchase a student pass to the Woodruff Arts Center, enabling them to attend unlimited events from the High, Alliance and Symphony for just $20 a year. This semester, the Student Government Association began funding a weekly shuttle from campus to the Arts Center on Thursday evenings, departing from the Student Center Transit Hub.
