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 six 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.
