For those who don’t know me that well, I started out as a student here at Georgia Tech in the fall of 1993, so this September (we were on the quarter system back in those days) will mark a quarter-century that I’ve been part of the Georgia Tech community.
It is amazing to walk around the campus now and think back on how things were in my freshman year. There is little that hasn’t changed, though every now and then I can pick out something that’s still close to the way it was back then. With so many memories and so many changes, I thought it would be fun to blog about life at Tech over the last quarter century. I’ve already picked out a few topics to cover:
- Computer technology (of course – figure on several posts around this topic)
- Buildings that have gone and come
- Food (Junior’s, Billy Bob’s, etc.)
- Student life now and then
- The 1996 Olympics
- The opening of Tech Square (and its effects on central campus)
I’ll try to dig into my personal archives for pictures and other interesting memorabilia to complement my posts.
I’m setting this blog up where anyone with a GT Account can post comments, so those of you who’ve been around for a while, please feel free to chime in with your memories. And, if you know of folks who’ve been around Tech more than a decade, please point them this way, as they might enjoy getting to reminisce about the way things used to be.
