Notes from the President: Finally, The Game, a Last Minute Victory, and a Happy Flight Home

After a broad range of activities with alumni, friends, and partners in Dublin over several days, game day finally arrived on Saturday! We began the day by co-hosting the President’s Tailgate Brunch where we heard from a number of speakers. Later we stopped by the Alumni reception and a couple of suites, and finally headed down to the field for the coin toss! 

The game was a real nail-biter, but so worth the wait! Big plays on both sides, but in the end, just when some were thinking that all was lost, the Jackets found a way to win! We flew home with the team after the ceremonial presentations and pictures were done. What a great experience for all of Georgia Tech, our first “international game” and returning home with a victory. This was a chance for 111 players, 150 band members, the Cheer Squad, the Dance Team and coaches, fans, and other supporters to go to Ireland and experience the warmth and hospitality of a gorgeous country, with which we have so much in common!  We very much appreciated their friendship and hospitality. While we were all glad to have been able to go, all of Dublin seemed genuinely excited to have us there, and it is great to be on our way home with a win! Read more...
