The College of Management is on the east side of I-75/85 which makes it a leap from the traditional borders. This buzz is all office, but his tie has become unglued and I had to prop it into place for the picture.

Buzz Cards are the combination student IDs and debit cards that all students have to carry. The yellow parts of this Buzz are covered in tiny pieces of Buzz Cards.

This Buzz is painted with beautiful vignettes of Georgia Tech including the Tech Tower. It's one of the most beautifully rendered and artistic buzzes, but the images are just a little busy to figure out without getting real close.
I've gone and posted two pictures of this one so that you can see both sides since they are very different.

I really don't get this rather abstract pattern. It must mean something to somebody.

To fit the recycling theme of this Buzz, his shirt is covered in small glass beads and his tail has some sort of fluffy fabric on it. And of course, his wings are green.

This is my favorite Buzz of them all. It's sponsored by the College of Engineering and they tried to make him a tough nerd. He has the buzzsaw mohawk and leather studded wrist cuffs but he also wears a white short sleeve shirt with a pocket protector. To see the welding glasses he had on before I managed to take the picture, see this other Flickr picture.

Missing In Action. This Buzz never got installed.

Another abstract pattern, but at least it is in the official school colors.

I have never hear of this organization which stands for Association Internationale des Étudiants en Sciences Économiques et Commerciales and is some sort of student exchange program. Their Buzz is just as baffling as their organization. It seems to be some sort of globe covered with stamps.

This Buzz named after fictional student legend George P. Burdell has one of the prime locations on campus, right in front of the stadium. His GT pennant went missing by the time I stumbled across him.

Another premium location Buzz, right in Callaway Courtyard. The guy that did this Buzz has pictures of it under construction.

|A Buzz Aquatic|

[artist] Julia Berman
Just as the name suggests, it is an aquatically themed Buzz with lots of fishies all over it. I assume the name is a play on that very bad Wes Anderson movie.

I have no idea what the "The Hamilton" is supposed to mean. It doesn't call up and Tech lore that I'm familiar with.
I'll post the rest another day when I'm fresh out of other blog ideas. Meanwhile enjoy the pics.
