Fraternities and sororities are social organizations. Taking meals together is a very strong bonding experience. Many chapters with a facility require all members to purchase a meal plan for a certain number of weekly dinners. Chapter facilities typically have a hired chef or cook to prepare meals. Meal plans for students living in the chapter house vary from one chapter to another. A chapter might have seven dinners and lunches per week with an open kitchen for breakfast and snacking, or dinners only with breakfast and lunch in an open kitchen. There are many variations offered within each organization. Some chapters also open their kitchens to allow for other Greek members of another chapter to share their space/meal plan options.
Available only to first-year housing students who have pledged a recognized Greek letter organization that has a chapter facility and meal plan service of their own. This does not cancel your plan with GT Dining Services, but it lowers your options on the traditional plan to accommodate for the meals you will alternatively receive at the facility for the chapter you have joined. Detailed information about the Greek meal plan is available at https://www.gatechdining.com/my-meal-plan (First Year Meal Plans option).
Upon accepting an invitation to membership to one of these specific chapters, the First Year Housing meal plan transfer requests are managed by our office at the start of each semester following fall and spring recruitment periods. To modify your current plan to include the Greek 120 Meal Plan, please fill out this form (it is only accessible by verified Georgia Tech students and open during a brief period following fall and spring recruitment). Meal Plan Change Fees apply ($30 for Academic Year 2018-19). All Greek meal plan enrollments will be effective on a specific, published date. Until that date, the student’s original meal plan will remain in force.
If you accepted Greek membership for Fall Semester but retained your original First Year Housing Plan and now desire a Greek 120 plan for Spring Semester, please fill out this form no later than midnight on Wednesday, December 12th (the form will close on this date but will reopen following the spring recruitment period). No change fee will apply for students making their request by this date.
The request form will be open for students accepting a new invitation to membership for Spring Semester on Monday 1/14/19 and will remain open only thru Wednesday 1/23/2019.
No late forms will be accepted and plans cannot be canceled. If you have any questions, please email firstname.lastname@example.org
