While many students excel on the football field or basketball courts, others have different talents that may not be as well recognized. One of those talents is music, and whether it be in the choir or band, students with musical abilities also share their talents with everyone in their life.

Director of Orientation and Special Programs Andy Cline said the university has more than 2,100 housing and orientation applications on file — which is the largest orientation group in the history of Tech.
