Zeta Sigma Chapter (Florida Tech)

Zeta Sigma at Florida Institute of Technology Wins Fourth House of the Quarter Award

Zeta Sigma’s house sits on a location with frontage on the Indian River Lagoon in Melbourne, Florida, which is part of the Atlantic Intracoastal Waterway. The house corporation is building a new facility in front of the old one that will open this fall. The old chapter house will be demolished upon completion of the new one. In preparation for their new house. Members have conducted multiple projects including the construction of a kayak rack, repairing the dock that was damaged by Hurricane Irma, building a fire pit by the water’s edge, renovating the outdoor basketball court, and constructing large wooden Greek letters that can be used at the property as well as at campus-wide events.

Zeta Sigma Chapter takes advantage of every opportunity provided by living on the water, including frequent fishing, kayaking, and boating. The site is famous for its gorgeous views of the sunrise and ocean breezes. They regularly host events for the campus and other organizations.

There is an established cleaning crew composed of active members. Other brothers living in the house also have a list of chores to complete. The chapter budgets for house improvements and works closely with the house corporation in doing so.

Zeta Sigma’s adherence to the OCS enables them to effectively fund the management of this new facility and empowers the house corporation to create and focus on long term goals.
