Tech's historic and primary administrative building

Tech's notable and essential regulatory building, Tech Tower, has the letters TECH hanging on it on each of its four sides. Since 1969, understudies on a few events have organized complex arrangements to scale Tech Tower and take the colossal typical letter T off the building. The "T" was first stolen in April 1969 by a mystery gathering of Georgia Tech understudies calling themselves the "Heavenly Seven." The people, who were propelled by a comparative trick that had occurred in 1968 at Harvard University, arranged the robbery as a method for honoring Institute President Edwin D. Harrison's retirement. The "T" was given back a few days after the fact by means of helicopter at the command of Atlanta leader Ivan Allen.

Emulating effective robberies, the T might then be returned at the halftime of the homecoming football diversion or might be come back to the yard of the president's chateau, and the learner's accomplishment might be praised. Custom manages that the first T to be stolen ought to be the one confronting east, as this can most effectively be seen from the I-75/I-85 Downtown Connector. Despite the fact that the organization used to choose not to see to this practice, it is currently formally demoralized, because of the danger of deadly falls and the potential for harm to the building, and compared to criminal movement (trespassing and robbery). Lately, this has turned into a genuine offense, and culprits today might confront a powerful fine to repair harms done to the building and at least a semester-long suspension for endeavoring the deed, if not out and out ejection.

Security characteristics, for example, security Polaroids, weight touchy top tiling, and fiber optic cabling running all around the letters have been added to the T to help keep its robbery and support in getting the culprits. In 1999, the T was effectively stolen by a gathering of "six or seven individuals" on the morning of June 3. The area of that T is still obscure. In 2001, two parts of the crew Beta Theta Pi were gotten and suspended trying to take the T. In October 2005, an imitation of the T was stolen from the Student Services Building and gave back two days after the fact. Notwithstanding the absence of physical risk included in taking the extra T, the robbery was still decidedly censured. The latest fruitful burglary of the T happened throughout Georgia Tech's spring break on March 18, 2014, which was the first run through since 1999 that it had been effectively stolen.
