As a parent or family member, there is a lot you can do for your student during their Georgia Tech Greek experience. Ask your student about their chapter and new brothers or sisters.
At no time should your student’s membership in a fraternity or sorority detract from their academic performance, job or co-op duties, nor their ability to be a successful student at Tech. Unfortunately, there are activities that can be divisive to the growth and development of your son or daughter. Alcohol misuse and hazing are common issues that plague fraternities and sororities across the United States and Canada. At Georgia Tech, we work diligently to eliminate these issues from our community. However, we cannot address issues without your support. If risk management concerns you, please feel free to contact the Office of Greek Affairs or the fraternity/sorority headquarters.
The Parents Program office provides resources and support to parents and families of Georgia Tech students. To learn more about the Parents Program, important contacts, resources, and frequently asked questions, visit the them at www.parents.gatech.edu.
