Iowa State University Interfraternity Council Guide 2018


WELCOME

Greetings from the Office of Sorority and Fraternity Engagement! There are few sorority and fraternity communities across the country that are as unique, dynamic, and robust as the community at Iowa State University. Sororities and fraternities members at Iowa State consistently receive recognition at every level you could imagine: personal, chapter, regional, national, and international! For years, our community has been known as one of the best of the best. There is an incredible opportunity ahead of you if you would like. As you think about what fraternity you should join, you should take some time to reflect on your own life. You should choose a fraternity of men who have similar values, ideals, principles, interests, and goals to your own. These should be men you feel comfortable around. You are making a commitment for a lifetime and this is a serious decision. You should choose a group of men you would be proud to call your brothers. ‘ There are many great characteristics of our fraternities at Iowa State. Take the opportunity to visit with multiple chapters, look at organizations from multiple points of view, and do not feel rushed to make a decision. This commitment is just as much your decision as it is the fraternity’s. Consider the fraternity beyond their physical structure or accolades they have received. Look at the men there now. Look at the men who used to be there. Each fraternity will highlight their own strengths and this is important to your decision. Our fraternities at Iowa State are thriving. Consistently, the all-fraternity grade point average exceeds the all-undergraduate men’s average. Our first-year retention rates and graduation rates also boast higher numbers than the university averages. Fraternities at Iowa State are here to support your academic endeavors. Fraternities and sororities collectively complete more than 70,000 hours of community service and raise over three quarters of a million dollars annually for charitable causes. There are countless leadership opportunities available to members of our community, And, yes, there are social events as well. As representatives of fraternities talk with you, ask them the tough questions. Challenge them to tell you about their organization history and values. Ask them how they live up to those values today. Ask them what they need to do better to maintain those values. A fraternity man that is confident in his own experience and knows how to align his actions with his organization’s values is a fraternity worth getting to know better. You should know that the Interfraternity Council’s recruitment process is substance free. Any organization that violates this expectation is not living the values of their organization and you should closely evaluate the ethics and standards of the organization. Have fun with this process as you consider making an incredibly important lifelong commitment. Fraternities at Iowa State have a plethora of success stories but central to all of our organizations is the commitment to friendship.

With Cyclone Spirit,

Billy Boulden Assistant Dean of Students and Director of Sorority and Fraternity Engagement

About the Iowa State University Sorority and Fraternity Community Fraternities and sororities have been an integral part of Iowa State University (ISU) since 1875 and have enhanced the lives of thousands of men and women. The ISU sorority and fraternity community offers outstanding opportunities to get involved in leadership, philanthropy, and service while striving academically. Joining the ISU Sorority and Fraternity Community will provide students with the opportunity to meet many friends and become involved on campus and in the community. Recruitment refers broadly to all opportunities in which students might seek membership within one of the fraternities or sororities at Iowa State. The recruitment process differs for each of our four Greek councils including the Collegiate Panhellenic Council, Interfraternity Council, National Pan-Hellenic Council and Multicultural Greek Council. Some recruitment processes are formal, while others are informal. The Sorority and Fraternity Community is one of the largest organizations on campus and we invite you to experience one of our more than 60 chapters! THE SORORITY AND FRATERNITY COMMUNITY FOCUSES ON FIVE KEY VALUES INCLUDING: ACADEMICS, CIVIC ENGAGEMENT, FRIENDSHIP, LEADERSHIP, AND SOCIAL JUSTICE.

The Interfraternity Council THE INTERFRATERNITY COUNCIL (IFC) IS MADE UP OF 32 FRATERNITIES ON IOWA STATE’S CAMPUS. These 32 organizations are home to over 2,000 undergraduate men at Iowa State University. Many of these organizations are a part of the North-American Interfraternity Conference (NIC), a trade association that works to ensure fraternities can operate in an environment conducive to their success through advocacy, collaboration and education. Rich in traditions and history, 29 of the IFC fraternities have homes located south of the Iowa State campus. Fraternity chapter sizes range from 20-120 members and house capacity ranges from 29-89 beds. The 32 Interfraternity Council chapters are governed by a peer-elected undergraduate board of 11 officers. These IFC officers serve the community through leadership workshops, chapter development, service projects, and recruitment.

HOW TO JOIN

Joining An IFC Fraternity Men interested in becoming a member of an IFC fraternity at Iowa State must go through the membership selection process, termed recruitment. At Iowa State the recruitment process is an informal, year-round operation. The majority of recruitment is done during the summer, however, there are opportunities to join a chapter throughout the school year as well. While IFC recruitment is a year-round process, there are periods of time throughout the year when chapters recruit more heavily. IF YOU HAVE ANY QUESTIONS IN REGARDS TO IFC RECRUITMENT, REACH OUT TO CALEB AND JOE AT IFCRECRUITMENT@IASTATE.EDU.

INFORMAL The overwhelming majority of IFC recruitment is informal. What does this mean? To compare, many IFC’s around the country follow a formal recruitment process, which is typically a week or two out of the year, often referred to as “rush week”, when recruitment is systematic and on a very big scale for a short amount of time. With IFC’s process here at Iowa State, it is very different. Since recruitment is spread out over a year-long period, chapters will recruit men one by one on a much more selective, personal level. This will entail chapter facility tours, having dinner with recruitment chairs/teams, meeting other chapter members, etc. While each chapter has their own individual process of how to go about selecting their members, this is a broad overview of informal recruitment.

IFC EXPERIENCE The IFC Experience is a weekend in April that generally kicks-off recruitment for incoming freshmen and transfer students. During this weekend, high school seniors, transfer students, and current Iowa State undergraduate students have the opportunity to learn about fraternity life, meet recruitment chairs, tour chapter facilities, and seek potential membership. Following the IFC Experience, fraternity chapters will individually contact prospective members to follow up and maintain communication.

STRUCTURED RECRUITMENT Structured Recruitment is held during a weekend in the fall. This event is a great supplement to summer recruitment, as it provides the opportunity to explore a wide range of chapters and systematically narrow down options through a mutual preference process. This is by far the most structured recruitment operation carried out by IFC fraternities and is open to all undergraduate men at Iowa State. IFC chapters have the autonomy to give out bids at any point throughout the year, however the IFC Experience and Structured Recruitment are exceptions, as bidding is restricted and regulated by IFC throughout the duration of these events. It is important to remember, the “best” chapter for someone may not be the best fit for a friend or classmate.

QUESTIONS TO ASK • Why should I join? What aspects of the chapter/fraternity life encouraged you to join? • What are the financial obligations of a new member? Are there additional costs that members are required to pay other than the fees listed? • Does your chapter offer need-based scholarships or other payment plans? • How long is the new member program and how much time do I need to devote to it? • What is the percentage of new members who get initiated into your fraternity? • What other campus organizations have you had an opportunity to participate in as a result of your fraternal experience? • How does your chapter promote scholarship?

SUMMER RECRUITMENT

• In what ways is your chapter involved with philanthropies and community service?

Many chapters utilize Iowa State Orientation to recruit during the summer. Any male incoming student who attends the sorority and fraternity session at summer orientation will have the opportunity to share his contact information with all IFC recruitment chairs by filling out a provided sheet that indicates their interest in joining a chapter. That information will be shared with the recruitment chairs immediately, and they will be in contact with each interested prospect within an hour of the session ending. IFC encourages incoming students and families to plan accordingly and set aside extra free time to meet with chapters and tour chapter facilities, all of which will be arranged by individual chapters.

• What types of activities are planned with other chapters in the community? • Is it possible to maintain a part-time job and still have time to fulfill your commitment to a fraternity? • What is the availability of housing and what are the rules pertaining to living in the fraternity house? • What are the benefits of joining a fraternity? • What are the founding values of your organization?

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ) Q: I’M WORRIED ABOUT MANAGING MY TIME BEING A MEMBER A FRATERNITY. HOW MUCH TIME DOES CHAPTER MEMBERSHIP TAKE?

Fraternity and sorority members often participate in ceremonies while becoming an active member of that organization. These ceremonies often are referred to as rituals. Greek chapters pride themselves on the rituals that their chapters were founded upon. These rituals are full of the traditions and values that make the chapters unique, having been conducted for many years. However, these rituals should not be confused with hazing and other inappropriate activities.

Anti-Hazing POLICY Iowa State University has a zero-tolerance policy regarding hazing. The Greek community shares the university’s definition of hazing in the Iowa State University Student Code of Conduct, which includes hazing as any intentional, knowing or reckless action, request or creation of circumstances that: Endangers the health or safety of any individual; causes or presents a substantial risk of physical injury, serious mental distress or personal humiliation to any individual, or; involves the destruction or removal of public or private property in connection with initiation or admission into, or continued membership in, any group affiliated with the university, including but not limited to, any student, campus, fraternal, academic, honorary, athletic or military organization. It is not a defense to the violation of this

section that the hazing participant provided explicit or implied consent. Apathy or acquiescence in the presence of hazing are not neutral acts; they are violations of this section. This information was obtained through the following website: http://www.policy.iastate.edu/policy/SDR#4.2.11. Each student will sign that they understands this policy when they sign their membership acceptance card (bid card) with the chapter that they join. Hazing may be reported to the Office of Greek Affairs, the Office of Student Conduct, Iowa State Police Department, or the Dean of Students.
