A Message From the University of Tennessee IFC

On behalf of the twenty 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 Tennessee has a tradition rich in history and campus involvement. Since the founding of the University’s first chapter, the Greek System has flourished. With roughly 1,800 gentlemen currently represented in IFC fraternities and twenty chapters on campus, our individual members, chapters, facilities, and charitable donations are among the most premier in the nation.

As the Tennessee IFC, we intend to lead the fundamental development of Greek Life across the nation, and to be the example of a safe, supportive, and unified community.

Whether you are a parent, prospective member, or already affiliated with one of our chapters, I hope our website will answer any questions you may have. Please feel free to contact any member of the Interfraternity Council for additional information.

Sincerely,

 

Caden Throneberry

University of Tennessee Interfraternity Council President

 

What is IFC?

The Interfraternity Council at the University of Tennessee is the governing body of the fraternities at Tennessee who are eligible for membership in the North-American Interfraternity Conference (NIC). IFC strives to promote high academic standards, philanthropic services, resources for recruitment, and inter-fraternity unity.

Of the sixty-three NIC fraternities in the United States and Canada, twenty-one are registered at Tennessee. The North-American Interfraternity Conference (NIC) is an organization established to foster inter-fraternity relations and assist in the development and education of NIC fraternities and their member chapters. These organizations are dedicated to personal development, academic achievement, leadership, and service to the campus community. Activities of a fraternity may include study halls, community service projects, cook-outs, intramural sports, educational programs, sorority mixers, formal dances, and leadership training. Fraternities ultimately offer close friendships that will last through college and beyond.
