IFC is the administrative and facilitating board of fraternity men who represent the best interest of Northwest Fraternities.  IFC seeks to promote a uniform Greek Community in which dedication to standards of leadership, brotherhood, scholarship, member development, service, and philanthropy will serve as the guiding values of the Council and all Fraternities.  IFC coordinates educational, social and recruitment programs for member chapters, as well as establishes the framework and standards that all fraternities uphold.  It is the goal of the Interfraternity Council to create an environment of welcoming by seeking to help each fraternity strive to reach its fullest potential.

But Greek Life is more than just abiding by rules and pretending to live the core values of each of our fraternities.  It changes your life.  From the people you meet to the events you experience, you grow as a person, and each step along the way defines you more and more.  Your brothers will always be there for you, through thick and thin, and you will end up with more than just a life-long friendship; you’ll end up with a brotherhood second to none.   

The Interfraternity Council is always here to aid you with questions and assist you through the entire Greek process.  We are a group of individuals who represent the Greek Community and all that it stands for.  On behalf of the entire Greek Community, we thank you for visiting our site.

Greek Life has given me such a great opportunity to grow and network over the past 2 and a half years here at Northwest. I have made friends in many Greek-letter organizations, and I always know that someone will have my back if I ever need it. Greek Life has allowed me to grow socially, intellectually, and professionally since I have joined, and I hope to help others grow in those same ways that I have. Go Greek!

The decision to go Greek was the best decision I've made in my college career. Greek life has helped me break out of my comfort zone, and helped me become a better person because of it. I have had so many great opportunities to give back to my community through philanthropic and fundraising events. My fraternity’s values are something that I hold to the highest regards in my life. My brothers in my fraternity have become a part of my family, and I would not trade them for anything.

Participation in recruitment will give you the opportunity to meet men from each of the eight fraternities. Recruitment is a mutual selection process that takes place over five days in September and January. Recruitment provides potential members the opportunity to meet with chapter members, ask a variety of questions, and tour chapter houses.

Men interested in fraternity life can participate in the Fall 2013 recruitment events (see event schedule below) men must have a 2.3 G.P.A. Each respective chapter organizes their own events and activities. Most recruitment events, which are typically casual and held at the chapter houses, range in activities from athletic events, poker/card tournaments, meet and greets, and cookouts.

For men, the recruitment process comes at no charge.  However, for those interested in going through recruitment, the deadline to register and be eligible to potentially receive a bid from a chapter is the Monday of Recruitment Week After this deadline, no potential new member will be eligible to accept a bid until the following Monday following the conclusion of formal recruitment.
