ATLANTA -- Georgia Tech sophomore and mechanical engineering major Nick Selby provided what The Wall Street Journal calls "an absolutely enthusiastic and motivational welcome" for the entering batch of students at the 2013 Freshman Convocation.

Selby's speech, set to "Also sprach Zarathustra," the music used in the opening sequence of 2001: A Space Odyssey, ignited Tech's McCamish Pavilion.

Georgia Tech is home to plenty of smart, creative types. Parker Pitisci, Luella High School's famous "dancing salutatorian," just began his freshman year at the Atlanta school.
