Caleb Anderson could sign 250 words at 9 months old, and by 15 months could already name all the countries on the globe. At age two, he read the U.S. Constitution, and today he speaks three languages other than English — Spanish, French and Mandarin. Those early accomplishments helped to land the 12-year-old boy from Marietta, Georgia, where he is today — starting his second year at Chattahoochee Technical College, also in Marietta.

Anderson qualified for the high-IQ society of Mensa at age three, and joined at age five, becoming the youngest Black boy to have ever done so.

The school was founded in 1885 as the Georgia School of Technology as part of Reconstruction plans to build an industrial economy in the post-Civil War Southern United States. Initially, it offered only a degree in mechanical engineering. By 1901, its curriculum had expanded to include electrical, civil, and chemical engineering. In 1948, the school changed its name to reflect its evolution from a trade school to a larger and more capable technical institute and research university. Today, Georgia Tech is organized into six colleges and contains about 31 departments/units, with emphasis on science and technology. It is well recognized for its degree programs in computer science and engineering.

Student athletics, both organized and intramural, are a part of student and alumni life. The school’s intercollegiate competitive sports teams, the four-time football national champion Yellow Jackets, and the nationally recognized fight song “Ramblin’ Wreck from Georgia Tech“, have helped keep Georgia Tech in the national spotlight. Georgia Tech fields eight men’s and seven women’s teams that compete in the NCAA Division I athletics and the Football Bowl Subdivision. Georgia Tech is a member of the Coastal Division in the Atlantic Coast Conference.
