Video: Georgia Tech student delivers epic welcome-back speech


This could be the most incredible welcome-back-to-college speech of all time, and the looks on the faces of the new Georgia Tech students listening to sophomore Nick Selby are priceless.

"In the words of Sir Isaac Newton," Nick began as the rising notes of Strauss' Also Sprach Zarathustra began to play. "If I have seen further it is by standing on the shoulders of giants. Georgia Tech is proud of its many traditions but the one I find most exciting is our tradition of excellence."

It's an inspiring video we can watch over and over.
