Intricately carved jack-o'-lanterns, a costumed run through campus, and
dropping flash-frozen pumpkins off a building.
We celebrate fall in ways you'll only see at Georgia Tech.
For three years running, Georgia Tech industrial students have been getting an
assignment to carve pumpkins. The end result is an artistic display unlike
anything else on campus. This year, students were asked to design and carve
pumpkins in honor of the 100 years of Bauhaus, a school and style with roots in
Germany that has had a profound influence upon art, architecture, graphic design,
interior design, and topography.
It gives new meaning to "smashing pumpkins," and is quickly becoming a Halloween
tradition at Georgia Tech.
Our College of Sciences flash-freezes pumpkins in nitrogen and allows students to
drop them off from the roof of the Howey Building, one our of our tallest
buildings in the heart of campus. The result is fascinating to watch. The proceeds
raise funds used that allows students to travel as part of the research and study
experience at Georgia Tech.
