One of the most common ways to get into the spirit of St. Patrick’s Day is to wear green clothing, in our case, socks. While expressing one’s green inclinations outwardly with colorful attire should never be discouraged, opportunities abound at Georgia Tech to act on, and internalize that spirit of green. So, perhaps St. Patty’s Day is best seen as a warm-up to a whole month of green themed events culminating with Earth Day. Take a look at all that’s happening at Georgia Tech over the next month.
