Have you ever seen someone so passionate about being a student? Nick Selby gave this opening speech to the new Freshman that joined the university. His speech starts out normally but is soon accompanied by the theme music from “2001: A Space Odyssey.”

Here’s a transcript of his speech:

“Our mission as students is not to follow in the footsteps of the astronauts, Nobel Prize laureates or the presidents that graduated before us but to exceed their footsteps, crush the shoulders of the giants upon whom we stand!” Selby screamed. “If you want to change the world, you’re at Georgia Tech, you can do that! If you want to build the ‘Iron Man’ suit, you’re at Georgia Tech, you can do that! If you want to play theme music during your convocation speech like a badass, we’re at Georgia Tech, we can do that! I am doing that!”

Yup, your’re a Geek Nick, respect! Georgia Tech Student Speech Goes Viral:
