Georgia Tech’s Greek alumni generally support Roll Call at a greater rate than the general alumni population, but each year grads with a fraternity or sorority affiliation are pushed to even greater heights of engagement with the Greek Alumni Challenge. The winners of the 2012 challenge were announced during the Ramblin’ Wreck Rally tailgate during this weekend’s Homecoming festivities.
The top three organizations within each of the four leagues (named T, H, W and G, of course) were awarded cash prizes ($3,000, $2,000 or $1,000 each) to be used at the fraternity or sorority’s own choosing.
The Greek Alumni Challenge winners of the 65th Roll Call, by league, are:
Sigma Alpha Epsilon — 39.2% participation rate
Pi Kappa Alpha — 38.3%
Sigma Chi — 36.7%
Phi Kappa Tau — 49.1%
Theta Chi — 38.7%
Alpha Epsilon Pi — 34.1%
Kappa Alpha Psi — 57.6%
Alpha Phi Alpha — 39.3%
Zeta Beta Tau — 31.3%
Alpha Kappa Alpha — 58.5%
Delta Sigma Theta — 55.5%
Alpha Xi Delta — 31.0%

Nate Jones, the Alumni Association’s Director of Annual Giving, says the groups who wind up on top of the Greek Alumni Challenge usually do so thanks to the organized efforts of alumni and students who step up to mobilize their networks, reaching out via email chains, phone calls and social media.
“The Roll Call Greek Challenge is a great way for alumni to support the academic mission of Georgia Tech and their Greek chapter at the same time,” Jones said. “We are so thankful to all the generous alumni who give back each year, and want to congratulate last year’s winners. We’re hoping this year’s Challenge will be even more successful.”
