Welcome to the T-Book (On-line). This page marks the evolution and adaptability of both Tech and its traditions to accommodate changing times and technologies. To find out more about the original T-Book as well as other Tech traditions visit our chapter on traditions.

Our hope is that this T-Book will be as useful to future Tech Freshmen as the original one was. In keeping with tradition this site has been organized just as a book would be, with chapters, appendixes, and a Glossary.
