Welcome

IFC 2015

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 love Greek Life because it’s my home away from home. The eternal bonds that I have created with the individuals in my chapter and Greek Life as a whole has helped shape me into the person I am today. I have developed relationships that will last a lifetime and couldn’t have done it without going Greek.

Greek Life has been the place I've called home my entire college career. Because of Greek Life, I have received many opportunities around the nation on many different levels that I would have never received otherwise. I have also created unbreakable bonds with amazing friends throughout the years that I couldn't see myself without.

I joined Greek Life for the connections and unity that the fraternities and sororities share. My favorite part of Greek Life is how no matter if we are different chapters or organizations, we are a huge extended family who stand by each other when things get tough.

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.

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.

Email: s520617@mail.nwmissouri.edu

I joined Greek Life to make friends in an environment that I was new to. I saw Greek Life as a great opportunity to meet new people and get to know my school and peers better than I would in any other way. I really love Greek Life for the community it provides and for the everlasting bonds I've created with my brothers. Being in a fraternity has opened many doors for me and will continue to do so throughout the years, and that is one of my favorite things about it.

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.

Meetings

General Council meetings are Thursdays at 6:00p.m. in the Boardroom, JW Jones Student Union

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 2.5 GPA, can participate in Fall 2016 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 Tuesday evening 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. Please register here
