photographs, please tell me first. I will more or less grant permission

Check out the various humans I consider friends. A quick note: the
term suitemate refers to the folks who live in the other half
of the suite. Yes, suitemate has such bad connotation, but
there isn't really a better term.
- Roommate: Jason Hauser (http://www.prism.gatech.edu/~gt9677b)
- Hauser (as we all call him) lived around the corner from me last
year. He started off this year on the second floor of Woodruff North, but since then has joined me up on
the fifth floor. We've got quite a bit in common -- we're both CS
majors and we play hockey every Saturday afternoon. Look for us again
- Suitemate: Nick Michalko (firstname.lastname@example.org)
- Nick, as you may all recall, lived across the hall from me last
year. This time, he's in the other half of the suite. Officially, he's
still a Biology major, but I suspect that will be changing soon.
- Suitemate: Chris Bradfield (http://dopey.resnet.gatech.edu)
- Chris lived down the hall from me last year. Like me, he's a CS
geek. Whereas I prefer doing application and artificial intelligence
programming, he's much more inclined towards the itty-bitty hardware and
- Amanda Burns (http://www.prism.gatech.edu/~gt7356a)
Amanda is a sweet, kind person. She's the best friend
I've ever had. -- Amanda dictating her biography.
- Jeremy Buxton (email@example.com)
- Jeremy was my Peer Leader (PL) last year; next year he'll become a
full-fledged Peer Advisor (PA). Isn't that a scary thought? Seriously,
Jeremy is a great guy, and he'll do well in his new position.
- Chris Craig (http://www.cc.gatech.edu/~ccraig)
- This particular Chris goes by the nickname "LT". The
reason is that some time ago, he would always carry around his laptop
computer. (Yes, he more of a computer/Linux freak than I may ever
become.) One person started calling him "LT", for laptop; the
- Josh Crews (http://www.prism.gatech.edu/~gt7200b)
- Josh used to be Nick's roommate last year, until he moved into his
fraternity, Tau Kappa Epsilon. He drops by our suite every now and
- Burton Gray (http://www.prism.gatech.edu/~gt1277b)
- Burton is a Junior AE major. He's not much for a computer person,
but he sure does play a mean game of ping-pong.
- Will Ha (http://www.prism.gatech.edu/~gt9976b)
- Will joined us mid-season last year. He moved in with Nick after
Josh left. Despite his AE major, he's still much a computer hardware
- Bob Holt (firstname.lastname@example.org)
- Bob was my roommate last year, and suitemate for part of this year.
He's a trombone player in the Tech marching band, and has since moved
onto an off-campus apartment with his band buddies.
- Chris Lenfest (email@example.com
- Chris, like me, is a TA for CS 1502. He never
naps during lecture. Maybe that's because his first class starts at
- Shelley Rehlin (firstname.lastname@example.org
- Shelley is a Chemical Engineering major. Ergo, she is constantly
studying and/or doing homework. In her free time, one may find her
doodling horses or playing Jumbalaya.
- Peter Sassone (http://www.prism.gatech.edu/~gt7146b)
- Peter is techincally a Computer Engineering major, though
we all say he's a CS in heart. Proof:
We'll humor him and just say CmpE
- He has Linux on his computer.
- He also is a TA for CS 1502.
- In fact, he's on the program development team for CS 1502.
- He probably programs better than many other CS'ers.
- John Somalis (email@example.com)
- John was Jeremy's roommate last year. I don't see him often this
- Gwyneth Smith (http://www.prism.gatech.edu/~gt7932a)
- Gwyneth is one of the first person that I met at Tech and really got
to know. She's currently cursed with a Macintosh. Even the powers of
mklinux won't do any good --
it doesn't run on her processor. Note: do not call her Gwen, Winnie, or
any other derivation of "Gwyneth", if you value your life and
Going, going, gone!
Below are ones who used to walk among us. Alas, they have gone
elsewhere go seek their fortunes.
- Daryl Cunningham
- Daryl was an old roommate of Bob and I. He transferred to Miami
University, Ohio, to pursue a degree in cognitive science.
- Mike Gensert
- Mike used to live down the hall from me. He's off to new hunting
grounds in his native home of Midland, Texas.
- James Johnson
- Was it his fear of study, an allergy to homework, or fanatical
playing of Dungeon and Dragons on weekends? Either way, this former
roommate is no longer a student at Georgia Tech.
A collection of pictures from around campus.
- Area I Housing (the northern half)
- Nicknamed the Freshmen Quad, this is where many of Tech's
incoming will spend their first year. From left to right: my old
building, Towers dorm, Harrison dorm, Brittain, Cloudman dorm, and Glenn
dorm. Not pictured: Smith, Brown, Howell, and Harris dorms.
- Brittain Rec and Dining Hall
- Yipee, cafeteria food! We had many interesting dinner conversations
last year; most of those could not be reprinted here without getting
- College of Computing (CoC)
- Home sweet home for me. I spend too much time in the main cluster
inside. Beware of the profs who dwell inside, especially Big Bad
Kurt. Take a skip over to http://www.cc.gatech.edu.
- Robert Ferst Center for the Arts
- The Fersr center is, among other things, home of DramaTech,
our student run theater group. They must be good because they've been
around for over fifty years. I believe the white sculpture in the
foreground is supposed to be an abstract Olympic flame.
- Student Services Building
- Within Student Services is Central Housing and this ceiling full of
flags. Each flag represents the home country of students at Tech.
- Grant Field and Bobby Dodd Stadium
- The Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets football team play on Grant Field,
the largest on-campus stadium of its kind in the nation. To catch up on
Yellow Jacket football and other sports, take a look at http://www.ramblinwreck.com.
- Mason Civil Engineering Building
- The white walls of the Mason building offer a sharp contrast to the
other brick buildings on campus. The story goes that the construction
firm hired to build this building also was to build a similar one at
Duke. However, the plans somehow got mixed and Tech ended up with a
white building. Somewhere on Duke's campus is a brick building standing
out in a field of white ones. I'm not sure how much of the story is
true. Oh yeah, I work in here as a system administrator.
- A View Outside of Towers
- Here's a picture I took of outside my old room in Towers. To the
far left is Harrison; the middle building is Britain; to the right is
- The Student Center
- One of the most important components of the Student Center is the
Rec Center -- a really nice pool hall, Olympic bowling lanes, and a
so-so video arcade.
- Student Athletic Complex (SAC)
- The SAC is the main workout center on campus. The Georgia Tech
Aquatic Center was the home to all Olympic swimming events. To the
right (not pictured) is the huge SAC Fields -- four football fields in
- The Kessler Campanile
- A lot of people, including somebody named Kessler, donated much
money for this newest symbol of Georgia Tech. On top of the sculpture
is a stylized version of Tech Tower. This
entire plaza area was built just for the 1996 Olympics and served as NBC
Today Show's backdrop during Olympic coverage. Nicknamed "The
Shaft", the Kessler Campanile even has "worshipers" See
the Cult of the Shaft's web page.
- Tech Tower
- Perhaps the best know symbol of Georgia Tech is the venerable Tech
Tower. Built over a hundred years ago, Tech Tower is one of the two
original building of the Institute. One tradition is that students
attempt to steal the T from TECH. However, administration cracked down
and has implemented hi-tech security devices including motion sensors
and surveillance cameras. Thus, potential robbers have resorted to more
fiendish methods of larceny.
- Towers Residence Hall
- Towers is where I lived freshman year. My old room is on the very
top floor, on the far right corner. I had a nice view of the
courtyard. When it was warm, one could often find me sitting in the
windowsill, studying or reading a book.
- Van Leer Electrical Engineering Building
- The building way off in the background is the Electrical Engineering
(EE) building. The proper way to pronounce "EE" is
"Double Eee"; "Eee Eee" just doesn't sound right. Often
heard joke: you can't spell geek without
- Skiles Walkway
- The walkway connects Skiles classroom (left) with the Student Center
(background). People often chalk messages on the walkway, to promote
- Woodruff Residence Halls
- The two wings, North and South Wings, comprise of Woodruff. Between
the two is Woodruff Dining Hall. I live on the very top floor of
Woodruff North (right), way in the back. Although there is an elevator
in the building, it is very slow and often times out of order. Oh well,
I need the exercise anyways.
YES! These pages are Lynx-friendly.
