Welcome

IFC 2017

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 a welcoming environment by seeking to help each fraternity strive to reach its fullest potential.

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.

I played football my entire life and after deciding not to play at Northwest, I really missed that brotherhood that football created for me. I decided to look into fraternity life and really felt I found that brotherhood at my chapter. My experience with Greek Life has made me into a better leader and communicator. Greek Life has lead me to reach out helping the community and philanthropic organizations. Joining Greek Life was one of the best decisions I have made.

I joined Greek life as a sophomore, and it was the best decision I have made coming to college thus far. Greek Life offers students a supportive community of peers, on both student and mentor levels. It teaches skills in time-management, organization, and offers hands on leadership opportunities. Personally, joining my chapter - Sigma Tau Gamma, gave me a chance to experience a brotherhood.

I will forever cherish the memories and experiences of my fraternity life, and hold myself to the values and principles of my chapter.

"No matter the letter we're all Greek together."

My favorite part of Greek Life is the sense of community, both within my own chapter and other Greeks on campus.

Vice President of Judicial Affairs

Major: Physical Education
Hometown: Peculiar, Missouri
Email: s519995@mail.nwmissouri.edu

I chose Greek Life because I wanted to be a part of something bigger than myself. I wanted to be somewhere I could build myself as a person and make a difference in my community. Being part of Alpha Gamma Rho has led to making countless connections and memories that I will never forget. Going Greek has been the best decision I have ever made, my brothers are like family and I will never be able to repay my organization enough.

 Benjamin Brodeson

Ben Brodersen
Vice President of Scholarship & Finance

Major: Animal Science (Pre-Veterinary Medicine)
Hometown: Warsaw, Missouri
Email: s520016@mail.nwmissouri.edu

I joined Greek Life because as an incoming freshman I was looking for a group of friends that no matter what would have my back and always be there to help and have a good time. By joining Alpha Gamma Rho, I found a group of brothers that I know I can always depend on and go to if I have questions about anything. By being a part of Greek Life, I found an organization that I strive to make better before my time is up to repay all the opportunities that it has given me to become a better person.

One of the main reasons that I chose Greek Life was to help meet new people and friends in a totally new environment. To say that my chapter has done that for me would be an understatement, as it has surpassed all of my expectations. Greek Life has given me many friends that I know will last for a long time and has shown me how great of a community and family environment the Greek community really is. Joining my chapter was one of the best decisions I have made during college and I would encourage everyone to join as it will give you long lasting relationships and help develop you as a person in the process.

 Austin Poehling

Austin Poehling
Vice President of Philanthropy

Major: Accounting
Minor: Criminal Justice
Hometown: Fremont, Nebraska
Email: s523804@mail.nwmissouri.edu

I joined Greek Life because I wanted to be a part of something bigger than myself. Throughout my college experience, my chapter has encouraged me to get involved around campus and become an overall better student. I know that I can count on my brothers for anything and that we have built friendships that will last a lifetime. With my position, I would like to continue to encourage fraternities to get involved with their communities through selfless acts and show everyone that Greek Life is here to help.

Recruitment

Letters Today, Leaders Tomorrow.

Participation in recruitment will give you the opportunity to meet men from each of the seven 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, who have at least a 2.50 GPA, can participate in Spring 2017 Recruitment events (see event schedule below). Each respective chapter organizes their own events and activities. Most recruitment events, which are typically casual and held at the chapter houses, include things like 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, January 23rd at 11:59 pm After this deadline, no potential new member will be eligible to accept a bid until the following Monday following the conclusion of formal recruitment. Please register here
