Apodo

A los deportistas de Georgia Tech se les denomina Yellow Jackets al parecer porque los aficionados de principios del siglo XX iban al campo con camisetas y chaquetas de color amarillo. La primera referencia al nombre aparece en el año 1902. Yellowjacket se le llama también en inglés a un tipo de avispa común, por lo que es ese animal el que sirve de mascota.[1]

Buzz, la mascota.

Otros apodos que ha recibido la universidad son los de Ramblin' Wreck, un coche modelo Ford T que todavía se usa como mascota, y antiguamente Engineers, Blacksmiths y Golden Tornado.
