While traveling south from Great Smoky Mountains NP toward Florida, we stopped off at Georgia Tech for Homecoming! Hard to believe Matt graduated 5 years ago! We enjoyed some special homecoming events on Friday (like the Mini 500 tricycle race) and the football game on Saturday.
Campus is partially divided by I-75/85 that goes right through midtown Atlanta. The downtown skyline makes for a great backdrop for the football games. Can you spot an olympic torch in the photo?!
"Pomping" large displays with tissue paper is part of the Homecoming competition between various campus organizations. Unfortunately high winds left this 30'+ tall display in a pile on the ground by the next morning.
New Clough building - named after a former university president. Seen the movie "The Internship"? It was filmed in and around this building!
Matt's old mailbox in the middle - only if he could remember the combination...
Glen freshman dorm undergoing a complete renovation. It's right across the street from the football stadium! Oh good memories.
Ouch, a bit morbid for Homecoming don't you think!?
The classic Wrambin' Wreck!
Nice halloween costume - it's Tech Tower and the "T" is missing!
Enjoyed a low country boil at the Delta Chi Fraternity house - great to see brothers again. Excited to see the house expansion come to life.
Zach. I need not say more.
Go TECH! Great to have a Homecoming Victory! If it just wasn't so cold...
Before leaving Atlanta we made a point to visit the High Museum of Art. Not nearly as large as Boston's fine arts museum, but still a very good experience.
Classic European fine art.
Wow, can you believe that the veil is made of stone? What talent it took to carve this marble statue.
Our favorite, Mr. Monet, proudly on display. Well, all the impressionist fine art is pretty spectacular.
