Pops with the President

Around 2,000 members of the campus community gathered at the Kessler Campanile this week to visit with President G.P. "Bud" Peterson and first lady Val Peterson as they near the end of their time at the helm of Georgia Tech.

Clear skies combined with music, games, pops, and an appearance from the Georgia Tech Marching Band made for an festive Wednesday afternoon at Pops with the President, where the Petersons shook hands, took photos with students and employees, and were thanked for their service to the Institute.
