Florida Tech Initiates First Fraternity for Online Learning Students
MELBOURNE, FLA.—Florida Institute of Technology announces the first-ever fraternity specifically for online students. The newly approved co-ed service fraternity, Theta Omega Gamma (TOG), was initiated by online student Darrek Battle. Battle is pursuing a bachelor’s degree in business administration with a concentration in computer information systems.
“I wanted students who attend classes online at Florida Tech to have an organization. . . The online students should have a place to belong, network and socialize,” he said. Battle set up the TOG page on Facebook, which currently has more than 80 members.
Vicky Knerly of Florida Tech’s Department of Online Program Administration and the group’s adviser, said, “The intent is that the fraternity not be just a networking or social club and that members will join regularly in service projects they decide on. Because online students are all over the world, the organization’s projects have the potential for a global reach.”
Theta Omega Gamma members plan their first official meeting for Feb. 1, according to Battle, TOG’s first president.
