Interfraternity Council

The University of Mississippi

Get Involved with IFC

Just as individual chapters offer valuable leadership opportunities, the Interfraternity Council provides a foundation upon which members of the fraternity & sorority community can represent and govern alongside their peers. IFC is comprised of some of the best and brightest leaders on campus and is the official representative for IFC fraternities in matters relating to university and student affairs.

Members of the IFC community are encouraged to get involved with IFC. Getting involved with the interfraternal community is an excellent way to learn more about organizations other than your own, learn about the larger fraternal movement and give back to the University of Mississippi community.
