The GT campus is abound with such emergency callboxes. A complete guide to callboxes on the GT campus is available from the GT Police Department. These devices are arguably one of the most useful fixtures to be found most places on campus, for a few of them also allow local calls in the Atlanta area.

The actual phones tend to be speakerphones of a fairly high quality, with three control buttons and a DTMF control pad. The controls are on, off, and emergency. The emergency button just calls the GT police, while the on and off buttons do what you'd expect. Most of the phones have some sort of timeout, so that they'll reset to the on-hook state after a certain period of inactivity.

Although not advertised on the front panel, most of the call boxes will accept incoming calls and answer them after a ring or two. After the box answers, it will send out a DTMF sequence (presumably to identify itself) and then initiate a speakerphone session. This means you can call one up from somewhere else and speak to those in the immediate vicinity.

Phones with a * in the comment field allow local phone calls. I haven't had a chance to run around and verify each one yet, but I'll do it someday. In any case, if you've verified the status of one recently, please send me some email and I'll update it in here.
