Background: The Georgia Institute of Technology, or Georgia Tech for short, is a public university in midtown Atlanta, Georgia with about 15,000 students. Founded in 1885 as the Georgia School of Technology, it is primarily an engineering and science school, though it is also well-known for its programs in the related disciplines of architecture, mathematics, management, computer science, and public affairs. Georgia Tech's campus was the site of the athletes' village and a venue for a number of athletic events for the 1996 Summer Olympics.

Georgia Tech was at one time often referred to as the North Avenue Trade School, although this was never its official title. The name stems from the fact that the campus is bordered to the south by North Avenue, and that the school, in its earlier years was operated much like a trade school, with students working part of the day in a machine shop, and the other part of the day in classrooms.

An additional tradition which is a hold over from the days of the trade school is what is referred to "The Whistle." The whistle blows every hour, at five till the hour from 6:55am to 5:55pm. It was originally used to mark the end of a shift in the shops in the early years of the Institute; now it is used to mark the common end of classes and as a ten minute warning to the common beginning of classes.

Campus, buildings, and other structures:
The Georgia Tech campus is located in Midtown, a primarily commercial district near the center of Atlanta. Although a number of huge buildings are visible from all points on campus, most notably the headquarters of BellSouth and a primary office of Coca-Cola and the Bank of America, the campus itself has few buildings over a few stories and has a great deal of greenery. This gives it a distinctly suburban atmosphere quite different from other Atlanta campuses such as that of Georgia State University.

The campus is organized into four main parts: West Campus, East Campus, Central Campus, and Tech Square, a newer section opened in 2003. West Campus and East Campus are both occupied primarily by student living complexes, while Central Campus is reserved primarily for buildings used for teaching and research. Tech Square, embedded in the city east of East Campus, is home to the new official bookstore, a hotel, the offices of a number of faculty, and classrooms used for management and international affairs classes.

Stealing the T: Tech's historic primary administrative building, Tech Tower, has the letters TECH hanging atop it. A number of times, students have orchestrated complex plans to steal the huge symbolic letter T, and on occasion have carried this act out successfully. The T is then returned at its traditional time, and the student's achievement is celebrated. Stealing the T is sometimes also called climbing.
To Hell With Georgia: Georgia Tech has an ongoing rivalry, mostly in sports, with another top-tier school in Georgia, the University of Georgia, often simply called Georgia for short. An annual issue of the school newspaper, The Technique, focuses on this rivalry.

RAT Caps: Although a fading history, a number of freshmen wear yellow baseball caps throughout the year. Short for Recruit At Tech, the RAT caps are decorated with the football team's scores, the freshman's major, expected graduation date, and "To Hell With Georgia" emblazed on the back of the cap.
George P. Burdell: Legendary imaginary student George P. Burdell is said to possess nearly every degree Georgia Tech offers, after many students took a variety of classes in his name.
