Full Summary: Grounded in many of Georgia Tech's richest traditions, this annual ceremony honors and celebrates the memory of those who have gone before us over the past year.

The Georgia Tech community is always deeply saddened when it loses one of its members. In 2001, a group of concerned students, faculty, and staff realized the community did not have a way in which to collectively honor those whom we had lost. Thus, a campuswide remembrance ceremony was created to honor the memory of those enrolled students and employees of the Institute who had died during the previous year. The event, titledĀ When the Whistle Blows, is our way of honoring those who meant a great deal to the campus community.
