With spring approaching, the University of Dayton Interfraternity Council is ready to usher in a new class of fraternity brothers.
Getting involved with a fraternity here at Dayton can be an amazing experience. There are many opportunities to meet new people and build relationships that will last a lifetime. A fraternity can help a person develop leadership skills, build their network and gain social skills.
Currently, there are five chapters governed by the Interfraternity Council. Greek life on campus is also popular among students for its philanthropic benefits. One of their key philanthropy events last semester was the Movember Fundraiser.
The Interfraternity Council and its chapters participated in the national fundraiser that raises money for men’s health while bringing awareness to mental illness, suicide prevention,testicular cancer, prostate cancer. Movember implores men to grow mustaches as conversation starters for these issues of men’s health.
As a result of this fundraiser, Dayton’s Interfraternity Council raised $29,909,23, which placed them sixth among all universities participating in Movember.
Students interested in joining a fraternity this spring through the recruitment process must first register for IFC Kickoff. Kickoff gives students the opportunity to talk to all five fraternities. The chapters on campus are Sigma Alpha Epsilon, Pi Kappa Phi, Beta Theta Pi, Phi Sigma Kappa, and Phi Kappa Psi. Each chapter holds multiple recruitment events that invite potential new members to meet and get a feel of each.
The deadline to register for IFC Recruitment is Monday and the IFC Kickoff will be on Sunday. For more information an
