Color guard member presents flag on field



The Georgia Tech Colorguard is comprised of talented members from all across the country, with their major fields of study ranging across all Colleges within the Institute – from Computer Science and Mechanical Engineering to International Affairs and Business. Our style is contemporary with a strong basis in technique. While the choreography is always challenging and stimulating, it is also fun to perform! The GTCG prides itself on representing the Institute with enthusiasm and spirit while also providing a creative outlet through which members can grow, make lasting friendships, and enhance their college experience.
