Undergraduate Office Celebrated Suite Updates with the help of SunTrust Trusteed Foundations

When undergraduate students returned back to campus this month, things were a little different in the Odie P. Galt Undergraduate Office Suite. In the spring, special guests from SunTrust, Georgia Tech colleagues, and students gathered to celebrate the Undergraduate Program’s completed office renovations.  

The gift for the office renovations was made possible by the generosity of the following SunTrust Trusteed Foundations: Thomas Guy Woolford Charitable Trust and Florence C. and Harry L. English Memorial Fund.

SunTrust representatives included Kirby Thompson, senior vice president of community and government affairs; Jolie Maxwell, vice president of community and government affairs; and Georgia Tech alumna Molly O’Neal, BSIE 2003, first vice president and university relations manager.

Jonathan Clarke, associate dean for undergraduate programs and associate professor of finance, expressed thanks on behalf of Scheller College, “Today’s celebration has been a much anticipated event by students, faculty, and staff alike. We are grateful for SunTrust’s continued support and are pleased to partner in these exciting educational endeavors.”

SunTrust was the top recruiter by number of undergraduate students hired for the Class of 2016.

Clarke reminded that a top objective in the College’s strategic plan, is focused on enhancing the student learning experience, growing student placement and career options, and increasing undergraduate student quality.

He continued, “Our undergraduate team will thrive in this beautifully renovated space and will be enabled to better serve our students. Students will benefit from the expanded common area to informally meet with faculty and staff outside of the classroom, additional private space for academic and career advising, and increased opportunities for building productive mentoring relationships.”


The undergraduate suite reopening was a much anticipated event by students, faculty, and staff alike.

The undergrad office supports 1,300 students within the Scheller College throughout their undergraduate experience. The office’s mission is to “collectively offer high quality services through transparent communication to our Georgia Tech community, providing exceptional and individual academic career services, efficient and effective use of current technology, a thriving community of business leaders, and holistic development.”

The Galt family originally named the space in honor of Odie P. Galt Jr., IM 1957.
