Welcome from our council President Dear Students and Families, On behalf of the Interfraternity Council (IFC) here at Florida State University, I would like to present this fall’s recruitment informational packet. This packet contains all of the dates, locations, and events that you will need to know as you begin the recruitment process. Our community consisting of 21 chapters boasts some of the most involved, dedicated, and driven students at Florida State University. We stand strong behind our contributions to this university and the community through philanthropy, we excel academically, and are involved in all aspects of this campus, from student government to the various registered student organizations on campus. The best advice I can give anyone considering rushing is to really take the time to learn about every chapter and meet as many brothers as you can. At the end of this packet there is a brief description of each fraternity and their contact information. Congratulations on beginning the journey of joining FSU Greek Life, if you have any questions about the process please feel free to reach out to our council at Sincerely, Parker Eastland Class of 2018 President, Interfraternity Council

The Interfraternity Council The Interfraternity Council (IFC) at Florida State University is the governing body for 21 men’s fraternities on campus. Consisting of a delegate and president from each fraternity, the IFC is dedicated to the academic and social development of its respective fraternities and their members. The internal committees of IFC are open to all members of the council and are responsible for community service, philanthropy, scholastic development, new member recruitment, risk management and public relations. Each semester, the IFC hosts seminars and workshops geared towards risk management, drug & alcohol awareness, hazing prevention, career development, sexual assault prevention and diversity awareness. Members in IFC organizations are active in every aspect of campus. With a diverse array of fraternities, each with its own unique qualities, there is a perfect fit for each individual looking to join a fraternity in the council. The IFC does not discriminate on the basis of age, race, national or ethnic origin, religion, sexual orientation, or disability.

Why Rush? At first glance, FSU can seem overwhelming with a population of more than 40,000 students. The Greek community gives students the chance to make a big campus feel small. When choosing a fraternity, you should look for a comfortable fit – a place where you share values and interests with the other members. By choosing to become a member of a Greek organization, you will meet people who grow to be your closest friends, those who will cheer you on when you are successful and will support you when the going gets tough. Greek organizations promote the development of close ties between members through living, studying, working, and having fun together.

IFC Mission Statement In order to promote and perpetuate the best interest of The Florida State University and the Greek letter social fraternities therein, to encourage the most complete intellectual, emotional, physical, and social development of the members of the fraternities, to ensure that the fraternities chartered at The Florida State University establish high standards and lofty pursuits, and to foster cooperation among said fraternities, and the University community, we do ordain and establish this constitution of the Inter-fraternity Council of The Florida State University. The Inter-fraternity Council of The Florida State University does not discriminate on the basis of age, color, race, national or ethnic origin, religion, sexual orientation, or disability.
