An energetic Georgia Institute of Technology student is getting a lot of attention online for his super-enthusiastic welcome speech to the university's incoming freshman.
 
Addressing them during a convocation Sunday, sophomore Nick Selby unleashed a passionate speech set to the music from "2001: A Space Odyssey," in which he encouraged students to "crush the shoulders of the giants of whom we stand" and told them "if you want to build the Ironman suit, you're at Georgia Tech! You can do that!"
 
The speech has had more than 300,000 views since it was posted online Monday.
