Fraternity Helps Soldiers; You Can, Too

The first-ever fraternity for online students, Florida Tech’s Theta Omega Gamma (TOG) service fraternity, has adopted Books for Soldiers (www.booksforsoldiers.com) as a service project. The co-ed organization has shipped its initial package to soldier Rocky Botner, stationed in Afghanistan.

“We felt it was a very worthwhile project. The consensus among members was that we would do this on either a group or individual basis until ‘they all come home,’ especially our troops in Afghanistan,” said faculty adviser Vicky Knerly.

Theta Omega Gamma was founded in January 2010 specifically for online students. “Because online students are all over the world, the organization’s projects have the potential for a global reach,” said Knerly.
