The information posted here is incorrect. Georgia tech has wifi covering the entire campus, there is not a single place you can go and not get GTWireless or GTWPA. All the rooms have sprinklers, and most students stay on campus over weekends. But nice try ;)



great school. posted Oct 4th, 2010 10:55 pm
