OMED hosts and sponsors events that celebrate the academic achievements of our students engage the campus community, including:
Tower Awards - Celebrates the academic achievements of underrepresented students who have attained a 3.15 GPA or higher.
Due to increasing concerns over the spread of COVID-19, it is with great regret that OMED: Educational Services has decided to cancel the 2020 Tower Awards originally scheduled for April 2 at the Georgia Tech Hotel.
The OMED office and the 2020 Tower Awards corporate partners and sponsors fully acknowledge our students’ hard work and academic achievements. Therefore, all students who previously registered for the event will receive their Tower Award at a later date. Emails will follow with instructions about awards distribution at a later date.
Academic Empowerment Fair- In celebration of Black History Month, OMED/AAMI hosts The Academic Empowerment Fair to recognize, support, and enhance Black Excellence on Georgia Tech's campus.
OMED Carnival - Every Fall OMED hosts a Welcome Back Carnival to help empower incoming students with the tools they will need and encourage networking.
