Fraternities Today Academics At Georgia Tech, the Greek Community consistently maintains a higher GPA than non-Greek undergraduates. Fraternities provide their members with programs such as study hours, major mentoring, and tutoring.
Costs New students are often worried about the monetary costs of a fraternity. This is something you should discuss with each fraternity individually. Many times it is possible that joining a fraternity can lower costs over the course of your college tenure.
Athletics Fraternities compete against each other in fraternityonly leagues in intramural sports but also compete against other groups, particularly in playoffs. Most of the time, the competition is fierce, but more importantly, it is always fun and a great way to relieve stress.
Friendship College represents an opportunity to make friends that you will have for the rest of your life. Whether or not you join, the Georgia Tech IFC community offers you an awesome opportunity to make new friends, both freshmen and upperclassmen, through the experience of Rush Week
Every fraternity has outlawed hazing in any form. In the State of Georgia, hazing is a criminal offense. IFC and the Georgia Tech administration are unconditionally opposed to any situation created to produce mental and/or physical discomfort, embarrassment, harassment, or ridicule.
Fraternities offer both internal leadership opportunities because they themselves need strong leaders, but also external leadership opportunities. Greek men & women represent the vast majority of campus leadership positions. As such,Greek Life can sometimes be a springboard for other involvement opportunities on campus.
The fraternal values of our community lead us to many philanthropic and service endeavors within the Georgia Tech and Atlanta community. Fraternities provide a great outlet to continue or build a passion for serving others and making a difference in the world.
During the week of Rush, all fraternity houses and events are required to be free from any alcohol and IFC patrols each chapter to ensure compliance with this rule. If you do join, you can look forward to a rewarding social life integrated with the culture and traditions of the Institute. IFC fraternity parties are regulated by clear and reasonable policies that keep our community safe.
What is IFC? The Interfraternity Council (IFC) at Georgia Tech leads and directs the 32 member fraternities on campus. Each of the thirty-two chapters represented are members of the North-American Interfraternity Conference (NIC), an national governing body. The Interfraternity Council promotes the interests of fraternities in general, and insures cooperation among the different fraternities on campus. The members of these 32 fraternities make up the IFC and represent the largest population of students within the Georgia Tech Greek Community by a substantial margin. These men come from all across the country and the globe to study at Georgia Tech, and have found the fraternity experience a welcome complement to their academics. For more information, please visit fraternity.gatech.edu!
What is Rush? Rush is a week-long opportunity to learn about the Georgia Tech community and meet many of your fellow Ramblin' Wrecks. You might already know you want to join a fraternity. You might have never even considered joining a fraternity, and that's OK. Rush begins with a kickoff event in Ferst Theater, after which you will have the opportunity to meet all of the chapters at a tabling event. After this, and for each night afterwards, you are free to walk around and visit each of the chapters individually. This is time for you to get to know the brothers of each chapter, and you are free to spend as much time as you like at each chapter location and visit as many chapters as you like. Most chapters will be serving dinner, and you can expect casual conversation and chapter-specific activities to give you a chance to meet the brothers and vice versa. Of course, with 32 chapters, there is a lot of variety in the Greek community at Georgia Tech. When you find a fraternity you like, and that fraternity likes you, you might receive a bid (an invitation to join their brotherhood).

Before You Start School Recruitment Events If you are in or near the Atlanta area this summer, you may be invited to formal recruitment events by fraternities. This is a great way to get a head start on Rush Week and start getting to know some fraternity men. We encourage all potential new members to meet multiple fraternities before making a final decision. Please note that it is strictly against IFC bylaws for these events to have alcohol or illegal substances in any way.
IFC @ FASET You can meet IFC and learn more about us, and all of Georgia Tech Greek Life, at FASET Orientation. Come to our "Fraternity & Sorority Life" breakout session to learn more background information and helpful statistics. You will hear about GT Greek Life right from the source! Also, please visit our tables at the involvement fair and during class registration. This will give you the chance to meet us on a more individual basis and ask us more specific questions.
Required Registration You are required to register for Rush Week online at fraternity.gatech.edu. It is completely free and it can only help you by giving fraternities a way to learn more about you and potentially contact you. There is no obligation to participate after you have registered, but is a great way to get information and updates about the process.
Tips for Rush Week
IFC GPA Rankings
1. Keep an open mind. Many people end up joining a fraternity when they did not plan on it before they came to college. Rush is a great opportunity to see if joining a fraternity is a good fit for you.

2. Be yourself. Each fraternity wants to get to know the real you. Don't feel overwhelmed if they ask you a lot of questions. They want to get to know you as much as you want to get to know them. 3. Do your homework. Check out fraternity.gatech.edu, this Guide, & individual chapter websites. Being prepared for Rush will help you get the most out of the week. 4. Don't get discouraged. There are 32 IFC fraternity chapters. If you haven't found one that you like, keep looking. You do not have to make a decision this week or even this semester. 5. Use the narrow-down approach. First, select 10-15 chapters through research & the Kickoff tabling event. Then, visit between 5-10 chapters during the first two days of rush. In days three and four, invest more time with the ones you really connect with. This will help you narrow down your choices for the last few nights of rush.

Frequently Asked Questions How does the bid process work?
What if I don't have time?
A bid is an official invitation to join a fraternity as an associate member. A fraternity can give a bid at any time of the year according to their policy. Chapters will generally give a bid if they feel you could be a good fit for their organization. You may receive bids from many fraternities and then decide where you fit best. Do not feel pressured into accepting the first bid you receive! You don't have to accept a bid if you don't feel a particular fraternity is right for you, and you do not need to accept a bid right away (even if you plan on accepting later).
While you are expected to become involved and participate in events with the fraternity, they realize that you are also adjusting to college life. If anything, a fraternity will help teach you valuable time management and study skills to adjust to life at Tech. Fraternity members can offer you help with your classes and will make sure you are studying to get the grades equivalent to your abilities. After investing time and effort into you as a new member, the fraternity is committed to helping you succeed.
Do I have to become a brother if I accept a bid?
What if I can't afford it?
No! The new member process is a time for you to get to know a fraternity and for them to get to know you more. Both have options of ending the new member period at any time if the fit is no longer working out. New member periods vary in length, but are generally two to three months long. During that time, you will learn the history of the fraternity, bond with the brothers and other new members, and participate in service projects, intramurals, socials, date nights, mixers, and other aspects of fraternity life.
It is important for you to make sure you can fulfill the financial obligations of new member process and being a member, However, being in a fraternity is usually cheaper than living on campus after your first year. (Information regarding finances can be found on page 4). Chapter Presidents and treasurers are also generally willing to work out payment options for members. Talk to the fraternities you are interested in about how their dues work and how it can work into your budget.
Will I get hazed?
What should I wear to rush?
No! If a fraternity new member process involves hazing, chapters face serious consequences for hazing new members or brothers. IFC and Georgia Tech Administration have developed strict guidelines to make sure new member process is as safe as possible.
Rush is very informal, so wear whatever you feel comfortable with. Most chapters will be dressed in business casualâ€”a collared shirt and khakisâ€” but you aren't expected to wear anything in particular.

Given how powerful the word is, it really isn't that surprising a lot of organizations use it, but Phi Kappa Theta is genuinely embodying it in a lot of ways. Greek organizations tend to attract members by having a sort of homogenous group of people that can be very desirable to befriend due to common interest. Phi Kapp does maintain this to a certain level, but where it really shines is by how many different perspectives each brother brings to whole chapter. The brothers span across different cultural, racial, and sexual identities encompassing many different interests/hobbies allowing for new members to find a place very easily. From personal experience as an LGBTQIA+ member, I have never found a greek organization so supportive of who I am, and it was even better to learn that it was a similar experience for a lot of the other brothers. Every moment feels like there is something new to explore, and there isn't dull moments around with the brothers.
