The Office of Fraternity and Sorority Life has officially moved into their new building. Located at 4100 Greek Park Dr., the state-of-the-art, 4,500-square-foot facility contains office space for the professional staff, student work area for student leaders, and a multipurpose room that can seat up to 50 people. This programming space will be utilized for various student meetings, leadership and development workshops, as well as space for educational programming. Clay Coleman, director for F&SL, states, “The Office of Fraternity and Sorority Life is elated to have a building dedicated to our community’s needs as it relates to engagement, outreach and leadership development. This is the student’s building and our staff is excited to help facilitate their experiences to become the premiere Fraternity and Sorority Life community in the country.” To schedule a meeting in the multipurpose room, contact Phyllis Kornegay, administrative assistant (or better known as “Ms. PK”) at Phyllis.Kornegay@ucf.edu or 407.823.2072.
In addition, two new sorority houses will open in August. Located next to the F&SL office, each house is just over 12,000 square-feet and will house 40 students each, including a graduate assistant house director. This will bring the number of houses in Greek Park to 13 and will house over 465 students. There are 47 fraternities and sororities at UCF, with membership of over 3,100 students. The two facilities will house Kappa Kappa Gamma and Chi Omega sororities, which were both part of an application and presentation process.
“The women are beyond thrilled” said Greg Mason, director for F&SL Housing. “It has been a labor of love to get these projects up and running and is a great testament to the university’s commitment and support of the fraternity and sorority community.” The buildings are owned, staffed and managed by the Department of Housing and Residence Life. The individual house corporations are responsible for furnishing the common spaces in the houses.
An open house for these buildings will be planned at a later date this fall, as part of UCF’s 50th Anniversary Celebration. The Office of F&SL is in the Division of Student Development and Enrollment Services.
