Congratulations on your decision to learn more about joining an Interfraternity Council (IFC) chapter at Sonoma State University! The IFC consists of all pre-initiated & initiated members of our 6 North-American Interfraternity Conference member organizations, 1 non-NIC national fraternity, and our 1 local fraternity. The North-American Interfraternity Conference (NIC) founded in 1910, serves the needs of its member fraternities through the advocacy, collaboration, and education of its 73 member organizations and approximately 5,500 chapters located on 800+ campuses in the United States and Canada.
The Interfraternity Council at SSU is the governing body of these groups and includes an Executive Board, along with senior delegates (Chapter Presidents) and junior delegates from all 8 member organizations. Regular meetings of the IFC are held every Thursday at 12:00pm, in the Erin Fisher Room of the Student Union.
Each semester, IFC helps coordinate the Information Night, which is the kick-off to individual recruitment events for all IFC fraternities in the fall and spring. Each fraternity conducts their own recruitment events separately, and locations/times vary by organization. In addition, each fraternity has their own requirements for joining. Make sure to meet all of our groups to learn more about who they are and what they are all about.
