When the Whistle Blows

Primary tabs

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.

Held near the conclusion of spring semester in the shadow of the Tech Tower, in Harrison Square, the simple ceremony combines Tech’s richest and oldest traditions to create a solemn tribute. For more information, please visit here.
