Interfraternity Council Recruitment

The Interfraternity Council (IFC) is the governing body of the 16 fraternities on LSU’s campus. As such, it facilitates the formal recruitment process each fall.

Fall Formal IFC Fraternity Recruitment 

Registration for fall 2021 formal recruitment is closed. If you are interested in participating in the informal recruitment process, please register here.

Informal recruitment will take place over two weeks, ending on Wednesday, September 8. 

If you are interested in informal recruitment and would like IFC to share your contact information with participating chapters, please complete the interest form. 

What is informal recruitment? 

Typically, ~half of the IFC fraternities will participate in the two-week informal process. A list of fraternities taking additional new members will be shared upon the conclusion of formal recruitment. You may view the list online or reach out to Austin Lewis, IFC Vice President of Recruitment, at lsuifcvpr@gmal.com no sooner than Wednesday, August 25. 

Chapters will reach out to potential members on their own; IFC does not facilitate this process.
