INTERFRATERNITY COUNCIL - UNIVERSITY of FLORIDA Fall 2015 Recruitment Guide
Welcome New UF Student,

Congratulations on your decision to attend the University of Florida and welcome to the
Gator Nation. As you explore involvement opportunities on campus, I strongly encourage
you to take the time to learn about the opportunity to join a national fraternity.

At UF, our chapters strive for excellence in all aspects of life and specifically promote the
pillars of scholarship, leadership, service, and community. The University of Florida
values the Greek community for its historical and continuing contributions to this
institution and Gainesville. For example, our Greek organizations raised $1,390,285.93 in
April for Children’s Miracle Network at UF Health, benefitting the entire North Central
Florida community.

A great way to learn more about the UF Greek community is to participate in formal
recruitment week and obtain membership in one of the 25 social male fraternities that
make up the Interfraternity Council.

Membership in an IFC fraternity will provide you with a support group of individuals
who share similar goals and values. You will learn valuable life lessons from the lore and
ritual of the general fraternity.

You will also gain access to a vast network of alumni who have been able to achieve
great levels of success after leaving the University. The relationships that you build
within a fraternity will truly be invaluable. Fraternity members report that fraternity
brothers become your study partners, roommates, confidants, and eventually your
groomsmen at your wedding. You do not want to miss out on the opportunity to learn
about joining a lifelong brotherhood.

                            Please review the pages of this recruitment guide to learn
                            more about Greek Life and the Interfraternity Council at the
                            University of Florida. I wish you the best in all of your future
                            endeavors.

                            Go Gators!

            Open Houses

            Come see what the 24 different chapters of the Interfraternity Council have to offer you! Our
            formal fall recruitment week will take place this year from Sunday, August 30th through
            Friday, September 4th.

            There will be a very important fall recruitment forum and informational session in the
            Phillips Center at 5:15 PM on Sunday, August 30th. If you are considering coming out to
            recruitment even in the slightest, it is important that you attend this recruitment forum.
            At the recruitment forum, the IFC Executive Board will distribute important information to help
            you through the upcoming recruitment week.

            Following the forum in the evening will be the IFC Fall Recruitment Kickoff BBQ at 6:30 PM
            on Flavet Field. Please make sure to attend this kickoff event, as all 24 chapters will be present
            for you to meet.

            All chapters will host a nightly event from 8pm to 11pm, with the majority of these events
            being located at the chapter houses. Most houses will also be open for lunch between
            11am and 1pm, as well as dinner between 5:30pm and 6:30pm.

            All events are ”open house” style, meaning you can come and stop by any chapter at any point
            throughout the duration of the event. Most prospective members will visit multiple chapters
            each night throughout recruitment week. A chapter can decide to give a bid to a prospective
            member at any time during formal recruitment week, which can then be accepted up through
            the end of recruitment week by the prospective member.

            We encourage prospective members to “rush” as many chapters as possible to see what our
            IFC community has to offer. Remember to dress comfortably, but nicely, and bring an open
            attitude. Come join us this fall to see what joining an IFC fraternity can do for you!

                                                                       University of Florida |

Philanthropy
Another way that IFC men help give back to the community
and charitable organizations is through the organization
of and participation in philanthropic events. Every IFC
chapter at the University of Florida organizes at least one
philanthropy annually, with some having one each semester.
From cheerleading competitions, to a Miss Greek pageant,
to an Earthball tournament, IFC fraternities get creative in
finding fun and exciting ways to raise funds for their charity
of choice. Chapters from the other councils, especially the
Panhellenic Council, participate in IFC philanthropies, and
vice versa.

In 2010, the Interfraternity Council held the first ever
”Chicken Wing Charity Thing” for the Children’s Miracle Network at Shands Hospital. This March, the fifth
annual Greek-wide event was held seeing a turnout of over 1,100 people and raising over $7,000.

Another large philanthropy with considerable Greek involvement is Dance Marathon at UF. Dance Marathon
features students who stand and dance for 26.2 hours in support of children at UF Health Hospital on

Service
Despite the inaccurate stereotypes of fraternity men
portrayed by the media and in movies, IFC men are in reality
well rounded individuals whose focus reaches far beyond
that of social excellence. It is a little known fact that Greek
men and women form the largest network of volunteers in
the country. Furthermore, Greeks volunteer approximately
60,000 hours of community service annually.

At the University of Florida, the Interfraternity Council
takes pride in giving back to the Gainesville community and
surrounding areas.

Every chapter completes a minimum of two service projects each semester, yet many fraternities go above and
beyond the minimum call. Some exceptional service projects with heavy IFC involvement range from our IFC
and PC clothing drive to the Chicken Wing Charity Thing fundraising event.

Project Makeover is a service project with hundreds of volunteers centered on fixing up the facilities of
local schools, while the Great American Cleanup is part of the ‘Keep Alachua County Beautiful’ program.
Both projects feature heavy involvement from IFC fraternities. Other fraternities have developed mentoring
programs for students at local elementary, middle, and high schools.

Brotherhood

At a school as large as the University of Florida, it is
sometimes easy to feel like you are just “a number”
among the student body of over 50,000. One of the key
advantages to joining an IFC fraternity at UF is that
doing so will make you a part of a smaller community on
campus. The Interfraternity Council prides itself on the
close-knit friendships that we share as both a council and
among our individual chapters as well.

Intramural Sports

Members of the Greek community represent some of the
best athletes that University of Florida intramurals have
to offer. As such, the fraternity leagues are some of the
most competitive leagues at UF. Divided into two leagues,
Orange and Blue, UF fraternities have developed a healthy
sense of competition and consistently have the most highly
attended intramural games on campus. This provides a
great stage for incoming students to continue their athletic
careers in college while experiencing a similar atmosphere
as high school sports.                                        The culmination of IFC intramurals at the end

Social
The social life of an IFC man at the University of Florida is
unrivaled by the average student. The effective time management
skills that you will inevitably learn by joining a fraternity allow you
to properly balance all of your affairs while still maintaining an
excellent social life.

Fraternities partake in a plethora of social events throughout a
given semester. Some of the most notable events are downtown
socials, grab-a-dates, crush parties, away functions, formals, and
woodsers. But the pinnacle of all social events is football season in the Southeast. No college does football game days like
the schools of the Southeastern Conference. Thousands of Gator Alumni pile into Gainesville every Saturday of the fall
semester to cheer on the Gators in the Swamp.

Your group of fraternity brothers will become some of the best friends you will have throughout your time on UF’s
campus. Joining a fraternity simply signifies your desire to interact with like-minded individuals that similarly identify
with the morals and values of the chapter you choose to join. Through new member class retreats, team building projects,
and brotherhood events you will build bonds with your fraternity that will last a lifetime. Fraternity brotherhood outings
range from larger events like paintball or camping and fishing trips, to something as simple as catching a UF Baseball
game at McKethan Stadium. Your fraternity and brothers will truly become your home away from home during college.

Joining an IFC fraternity will give you a great social experience at the University of Florida, while teaching you great
communication skills and what it means to be a true gentleman.

Alumni Networking
Now that you have made the decision to be a Gator for your
undergraduate college experience, one of your focuses throughout
this time will undoubtedly be to earn your undergraduate
degree and look towards a career in the professional world. Since
you’ve already seen that IFC men strive to maintain a high grade
point average, it should be no surprise that IFC men have also
experienced unparalleled success in the professional world after
college.

While some of this success can be accredited to outstanding academics, what really separates an IFC man from the
average student is his ability to network. As mentioned before, joining the Interfraternity Council will expose you to a
community of the future leaders in the professional world. Moreover, every IFC chapter at the University of Florida has
a grid of highly involved and influential alumni who can help you create contacts with employers.

Whether your future career of choice is engineering, business, or politics, chances are you will run into former Greek
members in upper management at some point. It’s no secret that Greeks like to hire fellow Greeks. As many will tell
you, it is often just as much about who you know, as it is what is on your resume, when trying to land that interview or
job. Joining an IFC chapter will give you access to networking resources that other students simply cannot replicate.
