IFC fraternities have the ability to recruit 365 days a year. If you are interested in joining a fraternity, all you have to do is make friends with some fraternity men. Be social, meet the members, go to some events, then decide if that chapter is right for you. If you are interested in joining a fraternity, but aren't sure where to get started, please contact IFC at email@example.com
