French Building Sign



  First structure erected on the Tech Campus

  Originally called the Academic Building

  Opened its doors in October, 1888

  Included a chapel that the students attended daily

  Sign with TECH appeared on Tower in 1918

  Written documentation that the sign was lighted in 1922, but it could have been done earlier

  TECH became individual letters outlined in neon in the 1950's.

  The fad of stealing the "T" was popular for about 30 years

  In the 1980's the letters were welded down and an alarm system was installed

  To even attempt to steal the "T" today can lead to immediate expulsion from Tech
