Trojans,

On behalf of the eighteen 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 an active, tight-knit community of scholars, athletes, entrepreneurs, and leaders from all over the world. USC Greek Life just celebrated its 130th birthday in Spring 2017. The community has grown to over 2,500 young men, recently adding several chapters to the council.

The USC Greek System fosters opportunities for its members that align with the five pillars of the university; “to be faithful, scholarly, skillful, courageous, and ambitious.” Gentlemen of USC Greek Life develop strong, life-long friendships and grow scholastically through mentorship from brothers that share similar interests. Greek life at USC cultivates strong organizational and leadership skills as well as courageous and ambitious mindsets, encouraging our members to tackle real-world problems as they enter the workforce.

Much of my maturity and achievement can be tied to my decision to join a fraternity at USC. From my experience as Secretary of my chapter to the scholastic and professional opportunities available to me, the friendships, mentorships, and leadership skills I have developed since joining USC Greek life are truly invaluable.

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 2018:

  • Continuing to prevent and raise awareness for people struggling with mental health, especially in Greek Life.
  • Increase support systems for sexual health, as well as continue to implement programs for the prevention of sexual assault, sexual misconduct, and emotional abuse.
  • Work to maintain and increase recruitment numbers even despite deferred recruitment.
  • Work to foster a more inclusive and diverse Greek community.
  • Work with DPS and LAPD to continue forming guidelines that are both safe and reasonable.
  • Collectively donate over $125,000 to charitable organizations, as well as make a 5- or 10-year financial commitment to a nonprofit on behalf of the IFC
  • Dedicate our chapters to over 10,000 hours of community service in the Greater Los Angeles Area.
  • Maintain a higher average GPA than the all-undergraduate university average.

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 me, the IFC Parents Council (ifpcusc@gmail.com), or other Executive Board members with questions.

Fight On!
