Florida Institute of Technology's 2015 FRAS Delegation 

What is FRAS?

FRAS is a three day conference held at a different school in Florida every year. The conference hosts roughly 350 students and staff from about 25 schools. This year, we have the pleasure of hosting the conference at the Florida Institute of Technology from January 29 through 31, and we want to make it the best it has ever been. This will be our first time hosting the conference, and the first time a small private institution has ever hosted the event. Over the course of the conference weekend, students have the opportunity to share their ideas with each other about different programing and community building techniques that they use at their individual schools. There is also a philanthropy challenge every year, where the entire conference raises money or collects materials for a selected organization. In the past, FRAS has donated school supplies to younger students, collected aluminum can tabs for the Ronald McDonald House, and this past year we collected Box Tops for education. At the conference this year Florida Institute of Technology is looking to reach out to more organizations and give each school the opportunity to select their own charity or philanthropy to support and we will have them document their efforts by creating a video and a presentation board.
