IFC Recruitment

Register for IFC Recruitment

The Interfraternity Council (IFC) at UT is composed of 21 active men’s fraternities. The IFC community is 150 years old and is proud of its strong tradition of having quality men’s fraternities. Many of the IFC fraternities receive annual awards from their national or international organizations for being among the best in the nation with their programming, academics, philanthropy, and leadership development.

The mission of the IFC is to develop men who lead with integrity, encourage a high level of scholarship, support the development of each chapter, promote a sense of community, and strive to set a standard of excellence for us and others at UT.

Learn more about the IFC on their website.

IFC operates on a yearly recruitment schedule, so opportunities focus on Spring and Fall recruitments hosted by IFC for all chapters. Informal recruitment takes place after bid day and before finals each semester and is something that each individual chapters chooses to do.

Bids can be distributed starting on Bid Day and continuing through out the semester; however, any new member given a bid during the semester must have adequate time to complete a new member program and initiation within that same semester. Bids cannot be distributed or promised after classes end until the next IFC sponsored Bid Day.
