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 three 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 five member organizations. Regular meetings of the IFC are held every Thursday at 12:00pm, in the Sonoma Valley Room of the Student Center.
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.
Fall 2015 Recruitment Dates
Tuesday, September 8th, 7:00 p.m., Ballroom A: Information Night
This is your opportunity to get information on SSU's five IFC fraternities. Each chapter will show a video about their organization and have materials for upcoming recruitment activities and events.
Fall 2015 Semester
Each chapter hosts their own events throughout the semester to get to know potential members better and for the potential members to learn more about the chapter and its members. Chapters typically host dinners, fun outings, and pick up sports games during these two weeks.
There is to be no alcohol at any of these events, even if attendees are over 21. Any recruitment events where alcohol is present should be reported immediately to the Director of CSLIS, Heather Howard Martin, and IFC President, Harry Rosenmayer.
