The Interfraternity Council proudly represents fifteen fraternities that are unique in name, deeply rooted in history, and excellence driven. Our council exists to promote the core values of our fraternities: academic excellence, respect and dignity for all, civic engagement, personal and professional development, and health and wellness, as we seek to foster and create selfless, diverse leaders among our men. On any given day, you will see IFC members actively participating around campus. We have leaders in the Associated Student Body, event coordinators for Big Event, special activity planners for Student Activities Association, and leaders for many other on-campus organizations.
While our organizations provide numerous opportunities to serve and lead, our primary goal is to mold individuals into becoming the greatest versions of themselves. We seek to give them the necessary tools so that may better the community. In our current culture, as young men face new, difficult challenges, the bond of fraternity is here to encourage and support this walk.
