Georgia Tech Engineering Student Offers Up Epic Welcome Speech

Posted: Updated:

Incoming freshman at Georgia Tech got quite the welcome speech.

Watch as one of the school's students pulls out all the stops.

"In the words of Sir Isaac Newton, 'If I have seen further, it is by standing on the shoulders of giants.' Georgia Tech is proud of its many traditions, but the one I find most exciting is our tradition of excellence. Our mission as students is not follow in the footsteps of the astronauts, Nobel Prize laureates and presidents who graduated before us, but to exceed their footsteps, crush the shoulders of the giants upon whom we stand. We, here, are all such innovative people. So, I am telling you if you want to change the world, you're at Georgia Tech. You can do that! If you want to build the 'Iron Man' suit, you are at Georgia Tech. You can do that! If you want to play theme music during your convocation speech like (beep), we're at Georgia Tech. We can do that! I am doing that!"

That was Nick Selby, and he absolutely did do that.

He's part of the mechanical engineering class of 2015 at the Georgia Institute of Technology.
