Student Life & Event Services

IFC Fraternity Week

Throughout the first week of the fall semester, chapters and the Interfraternity Council (IFC) host events for interested men to interact with chapter members. Interested students are strongly encouraged to attend the following events to learn more about Fraternity Life at UNI. Each of the four IFC fraternities will be hosting fun, casual events during the semester to allow interested students to get to know current members and learn about the organization. These events are an opportunity to meet people and figure out which fraternity best fits you and your needs. 

*There are two culturally-based fraternities which are not encompassed by IFC. Learn more about them here.

Registration is open beginning July 1!

Monday, August 23, at 12pm (noon) is the suggested registration deadline. Registration will be open throughout Fraternity Week to ensure everyone is included and able to join through the week.
