The first day of fall marks a new beginning for Tech students new and old — so why not say hello to someone new?
Omicron Delta Kappa (ODK) will host Ramble In, a campuswide event, on Monday, Aug. 19. Students, faculty, and staff are encouraged to stop by one of several locations on campus to pick up a nametag, put it on, and then say hello to someone new as they go about their day.
“We want to break down the barriers between students, faculty, and staff, and help open up communication among everyone on campus,” said Michael Xiao, a computer science major and secretary of ODK. “An overarching theme is inclusiveness and providing a welcoming environment for new students.” The event also serves as a kind of opening for Tech students’ college careers, which many conclude by celebrating at the Ramblin’ On event just before graduation.
During Ramble In, look for free King of Pops treats, Tiff's Treats cookies, and a raffle for a signed football from Head Coach Geoff Collins and a Fox Theatre ticket. President G.P. “Bud” Peterson will also speak at the event at 1 p.m. at the Kessler Campanile.
Look for nametag tables in the following campus locations:
- Kessler Campanile
- Tech Walkway
- Outside the Clough Commons turnaround
