Council Recruitment Information



Fraternities (IFC)

During the fall quarter, the Interfraternity Council (IFC) fraternities recruit at the same time. During the winter quarter, most IFC fraternities will be holding recruitment events, and during the spring quarter about half will be recruiting. Most of the IFC fraternities will be in the same area on ring road so that interested students will be able to easily visit all 15 fraternities. The IFC executive board usually holds an informational session for interested students to learn more about the benefits of Sorority & Fraternity Life and how to navigate the recruitment process.
