Georgia Tech seeks to stop 'T' thefts

ATLANTA, Sept. 28 (UPI) -- The Georgia Institute of Technology said it has spent more than $100,000 replacing the letter "T" on various signs after repeated thefts.

Undergraduate President Elle Creel said stealing the "T" from Tech Tower is a tradition stretching back to the 1960s, but it has recently spread to taking the "T" from signs all over campus, including stadium signs and library book return boxes, WAGA-TV, Atlanta, reported Wednesday.

The student government is encouraging thieves to return the pilfered letters with its "Keep the T in Tech" campaign, which is allowing those who take the letters to return them Wednesday with no questions asked.

"They can come by our student government office all day. We are also going to have the Rambling Wreck our mascot. You can come by Skiles Walkway and drop off the T in the wreck. There will be no questions asked. We don't care why you stole the T or when. We just want to know where you got it so we can restore it to its rightful place," Creel said.
