IFC RECRUITMENT MEET AND GREET RESCHEDULED


The Alabama Interfraternity Council apologizes for the inconvenience of rescheduling the IFC Meet and Greet. To assist everyone in their planning for IFC recruitment, we would like to provide an updated schedule for our IFC recruitment events.


Monday, August 17th - Chapter Specific Recruitment Events

Chapters will be hosting individual recruitment events and activities throughout the evening, as well as continuing their regularly scheduled open houses. Men interested in learning about a specific chapter are encouraged to meet with those chapters at their given chapter facilities. For information about specific chapter events, make sure to register for IFC Recruitment  and look for emails to your listed "Student Email" address. These will be coming from the BamaIFCRecruitment@gmail.com account.


Tuesday, August 18th - Rescheduled IFC Meet and Greet (Student Rec Center, Multi Activity Room)

Location is still TBD, but we will be hosting our IFC Meet and Greet before the 7pm New Student Convocation. Come meet some of our IFC chapters in this causal meeting event. All chapters will be participating in the Meet and Greet, and this is a great time to learn about the many different options for Fraternity membership.


Wednesday, August 19th - IFC Open Houses

All IFC Chapters will be hosting Open Houses this evening. Open house events begin at 6pm and will conclude at 8pm. All of these events are casual and "come as you are." This is a great event to get to know the brothers, meet other men interested in recruitment, and find a group that is a good fit for you to join. All events are open to any UA male students interested in pursuing a bid for membership in one of our chapters.


Thursday, August 20th & Friday, August 21st - Chapter Specific Events

Chapters will be hosting individual recruitment events and activities throughout the evening.

These will be coming from the BamaIFCRecruitment@gmail.com account.


Saturday August 22nd - IFC Costa Greek Fest

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.


Sincerely,


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.

Please Be Aware that men participating in IFC recruitment CANNOT move into residence halls early. The IFC does not have any formal scheduled recruitment events before the evening of August 16, 2015. 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.  


If you are interested in learning more about your housing options, or you are interested in scheduling a move-in date, please visit the Office of Housing & Residential Communities at www.housing.ua.edu or you can call their office at either (888)-498- BAMA or (205)-348-6676.
