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 thirty-one chapters 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,


Matt Murray

IFC President
