With Homecoming Week fast approaching, two College of Computing students are among 10 semifinalists vying for the title of Mr. Georgia Tech.
According to the Georgia Tech Homecoming Facebook page, Kyle Woumn and Andrew Perry, both computer science majors, have been nominated to represent the Institute next week during the Homecoming celebration as Mr. Georgia Tech.
Voting for Mr. and Ms. Georgia Tech, which is only open to students, opened today and runs through October 26.

The winners will be revealed during halftime of the Homecoming Game against Duke on Oct. 29.
