I love my school because it has a way of bringing in every single culture but still making it feel like home on campus. Meals in the dining hall are always featuring international dishes, there are endless cultural clubs on campus, and every year it hosts its own international festival with food, music, and games. The curriculum is rigorous and makes you work hard to obtain a decent GPA. It's huge on research and almost every major is required to do a senior design project where it's presented to various companies for job recruitment purposes. It's a challenging school but very fun and rewarding at the same time!

I myself am not a part of Greek life but have many friends that are. They host many events including fundraisers, advertising the university to the community, and tons of community service whether it is through the college or outside. Greek life is present at all school event's whether it is an athletic program, giving tours to incoming freshman, the President's Picnic, etc. Greek life is a very positive contribution to Florida Tech!

Go Greek! Didn't think I was going to join a fraternity when I was picking out schools but I happened upon quite the Greek scene when I pulled up at Florida Tech (literally,greeks helped me move into my room). There are currently 8 fraternities on campus and 3 sororities(There is a &quot;service fraternity&quot; but they are co-ed and not recognized by Inter-Fraternal Council). Rush is an experience everyone should go through, if nothing else just to say you've done it. Being a tech school you do not have your typical greek scene. There is no &quot;Greek row&quot; (though there have been talks of a variant of one to be built soon). The vast majority of members are not &quot;fratstars&quot; shall we say but more a collection of people that share a common set of ideals that just like to hang out together.Another difference from your typical University Greek Life is that Greeks at Florida Tech aren't all about partying, we are in college first and foremost to achieve academic excellence, having older members that can help you study and answer questions is an invaluable resource. Joining Greek life was one of the best decisions I've ever made, helped me immensely get my 4.0GPA
