Greek Village
The purpose of housing facilities in the Florida Institute of Technology Greek Village is to use safe, common and functional spaces specific to Greek affiliated organizations in order to promote a positive and unified fraternity and sorority community. Providing a safe environment wherein residents are able to grow and learn from their respective organization will only prove to enhance the campus of Florida Tech. Common Spaces within the Florida Tech Greek Village will help residents embrace the differences among each other and their organizations. Meeting and storage spaces will facilitate a more supportive and productive community by allowing members to join together in a central location. The overall goal of Fraternity and Sorority Housing is to promote a community of unity by providing common spaces where residents can share common ideals and goals.
