We are excited about the upcoming renovations to the Bryan Center. While the work is being done, the Office of Fraternity and Sorority Life will be moving to 2022 Campus Drive (formerly the International House) on Monday, November 19th and officially be open for business on Tuesday, November 20th.
In order to prepare for the move the Office will be closed on Friday, November 16th.
