Interfraternity Council Fraternity Recruitment


The Greek community has a long-standing tradition at Iowa State University, with the first fraternity coming to campus 140 years ago! As Iowa State University has grown over the years, generations of men have continuously strived to further their involvement not only within fraternal organizations, but also on campus, and within the community. The purpose of our fraternities has always been to promote and foster an environment that works towards a devotion to scholarship, service, leadership, and brotherhood. We are thrilled that you are considering going Greek!

How to get involved:

Fraternities at Iowa State recruit on an informal, or year-round basis, which allows men to join organizations at any point throughout their collegiate experience at Iowa State University. High school seniors may join a fraternity after Greek Visit Day, and through out the summer prior to the beginning of their first semester. Current ISU students may join a fraternity at any time.

Summer Orientation & Recruitment:

During the summer, fraternities will reach out to prospective members through chapter leaders who will provide information to incoming first-year & transfer students about their specific organization. Your June orientation visit is a great time to tour the fraternity houses and meet alumni and student leaders. The Vice Presidents of Recruitment and the Office of Greek Affairs will also be holding informational sessions during orientation.

Fall Fraternity Recruitment:

The Interfraternity Council will traditionally hold a large recruitment event for prospective members during the first few weeks of the fall semester. This event is open to all current Iowa State students interested in joining a fraternity or simply looking for more information. Prospective members will have the opportunity to meet individually with chapter and community leaders as well as receive additional information and resources regarding recruitment. 

The 2016 Fall Fraternity Guide is online!

“Fraternity is a process of continual self-improvement and personal growth. It is more than a collection of friends gathered in one place. It is a group of men dedicated to bettering each other and themselves. If fraternity life is something you may be interested in, I highly encourage you to make the most of this incredible opportunity. Get involved, meet as many people as you can, become a leader on campus. If you are the type of person who strives for excellence socially, academically and professionally, then Greek life is for you.“
