Fraternity Life at the Capstone

Message From the Alabama Interfraternity Council:


On behalf of the thirty fraternity chapters that make up the Interfraternity Council, I would like to welcome you to the IFC website.

The Fraternity & Sorority Community at the University of Alabama has a tradition rich in history and campus involvement. Since the founding of the University's first chapter in 1847, the Greek system has flourished. With roughly 3,500 gentlemen currently represented in IFC fraternities and twenty-three chapter houses on campus, our individual members, chapters, facilities, and charitable donations are among the most premier in the nation.

Whether you are a parent, a prospective fraternity member, or currently affiliated with one of our chapters, I hope our website will answer any questions you may have. If not, please do not hesitate to contact myself, chapter presidents, chapter recruitment chairmen, or other members of the Interfraternity Council.


Alex Coogan

IFC President


IFC will host informal recruitment activities Sunday, August 16 - Tuesday, August 18, 2015. Sunday's activities will be an IFC Meet and Greet with chapters representatives at Manderson Landing. This is an informal event where men interested in attending Fall Recruitment events can show their interest in a variety of fraternity chapters. IFC chapters will host recruitment events and further meet and greet events each evening beginning on August 17th until the first day of fall classes on August 19th. If you're interested in learning more about those organizations that are part of the IFC Council, sure to attend the Meet and Greet on the 16th, and the open house events August 17th-19th.

Therefore, there is no need for men interested in joining a fraternity to move in early their on-campus residence hall room for recruitment events or activities.

Furthermore, chapters should not request or require that any new member or potential new member arrive on campus prior to their assigned regular move-in date.  All move-in arrangements should be made through the Office of Housing & Residential Communities.
