Gamma Xi Chapter
University of Florida
Phase I & II: $1.2 million raised
Phase III Goal: $1.1 million
A decision was made in spring 2008 to undertake a feasibility study to ascertain whether it was possible to renovate and expand the existing chapter house, driven in part by a life-safety sprinklering mandate that needed to be operational by fall 2010.
The project kicked off with a $1.5 million goal, and was incredibly successful despite the 2008-09 financial collapse. Phase I of the new construction started in 2009 with the renovations of the interior, and Phase II started in 2010 with the addition of the new dorm wing, including a new parents suite and library.
The new and modernized living quarters will offer the men of Gamma Xi an environment competitive to other campus housing options.
