On behalf of the twenty-one fraternity chapters that comprise the Interfraternity Council at the University of Southern California, I would like to welcome you to the IFC website.
As a deeply rooted tradition in USC’s history, the USC Greek Community has been a strong, tight-knit community for scholars, athletes, entrepreneurs, and leaders from all over the world.
Since the first chapter’s establishment in 1887, our fraternal system has grown and evolved to now include twenty-one chapters, totaling 2,400 young men and counting, and with individual chapter sizes ranging from 25 to nearly 200 brothers.
With access to numerous leadership and community service opportunities, a solid academic and professional support network, and most importantly the simple, yet powerful camaraderie within each fraternity, the experiences, skills and friendships developed during your time in Greek life will last well beyond graduation.
While the decision to join a fraternity can be a rather daunting task, I assure you that with such a diverse array of fraternities, there is truly a perfect fit for everyone.
I attribute much of my personal maturity and achievements to my decision to go Greek. From the past presidency of my chapter to the on-campus research and summer internship at Apple ahead of me, I will venture to say that the friendships, mentorships, and leadership opportunities found in USC Greek life are truly second to none.
The USC Interfraternity Council is committed to fostering a welcoming, safe, and engaging community. In doing so, we dedicate ourselves to the following goals for 2016:
- Prevent and Raise Awareness for Sexual Assault and Mental Health Issues
- Commit to and Support Zero-Tolerance Hazing Partnerships with Chapters
- Collectively Donate over $100,000 to Charity
- Work over 10,000 Hours of Community Service in the Greater Los Angeles area
- Maintain a Higher Average GPA than the All-Undergraduate Average
- Expand the IFC with the addition of one fraternity in the Fall of 2016
Whether a parent, prospective fraternity member, or current affiliate, I hope our website will answer any and all questions you may have. If not, please do not hesitate to contact myself, the IFC Parents Council (firstname.lastname@example.org), or other executive board members with any questions.
