Parent's Information

Parents and Families

On behalf of the Office of Student Life, I would like to personally welcome your son or daughter to the Greek Life Community. Fraternities and Sororities were founded with high ideals and values. As your child discovers the wonderful experience of being a member of a fraternal organization, please know that he/she is not alone. Many other students are going through the education process with them, in fact, over 150 students joined last semester. 

Entering college is an exciting time in a student's life. The challenge and rewards of this new life can be enhanced through the fraternity or sorority experience at Florida Tech. Fraternities and sororities are a large component of campus involvement at Florida Tech. And as a member of a fraternal group, your child will have the opportunity to strengthen as an individual and to develop leadership skills that include leading committees, managing budgets, interacting with faculty and staff and exposure to potential careers.Fraternities & Sororities have plenty of opportunities for involvement in activities, but we stress to our members that they are students first here at Florida Tech. We have many resources available to your child to help him/her be more successful in his/her education program. The students are encouraged to contact the Student Life Office anytime if they have questions about their experience or how to be more successful.

As you and your student discuss his/her participation in a fraternity or a sorority, please feel free to contact me at any time with questions or concerns. I can be reached at 321-674-8080 or at cmcguirecarnley@fit.edu.

Sincerely,

Cat McGuire Carnley
Director of Greek Life
