First days teaching at Georgia Tech

So, I walked into my first class on Monday morning around 8:30am. The class doesn’t start until 9:05am; but it’s in the same building as my office, and I wanted to figure out the computer, screen, lights, etc. before students arrived.

I’m going to have to start getting up earlier if I’m going to beat them into class. There were already 7-10 students present. More than half an hour early. For a philosophy class.

“Y’all are here early,” I remarked casually, trying to hide my surprise. “Yes sir,” they replied, very nearly in unison.

Think I’m exaggerating? Take a look at this from freshman convocation (thanks to @ReplyCollective for pointing this out to me).

One hell of an engineer, indeed. I’m looking forward to this year. Should be fun.
