MELBOURNE, FLA.—The North-American Interfraternity Conference (NIC), a trade association representing 75 American and Canadian fraternities, recognizes Florida Institute of Technology NIC chapters for achieving grade point averages (GPA) above all male students’ average GPAs on campus. Of the 227 campuses that reported data to the NIC for the 2012-13 academic year, only 20 campuses reported that 100 percent of their chapter members have achieved this milestone.
In spring, 2013, Florida Tech has a male undergraduate student body of 2,140, of which 12.8 percent were members of eight fraternities.
The NIC has about 5,500 chapter members located in more than 800 campuses across North America with approximately 350,000 undergraduate members. It “serves to advocate the needs of its member fraternities through enrichment of the fraternity experience; advancement and growth of the fraternity community; and enhancement of the educational mission of the host institutions.”
