On behalf of the 1,500 men within the Inter-Fraternity Council (IFC), I would like to welcome you to the University of Virginia and its 160 years of Greek community and tradition. During your time as a student at Mr. Jefferson’s University, I hope that you seek out and take advantage of the tremendous opportunity provided by the Greek system here around Grounds.
At their core, all fraternities value the ideals of scholarship, leadership, service, and brotherhood. However, each of our 27 fraternities has a different personality and dynamic. Undoubtedly, the diversity of the Greek system here is something we take great pride in. In that respect, I believe we have a fraternity for every man, and I urge you to explore them all.
IFC fraternity rush is non-binding and a memorable experience in itself. The new friends, opportunities, and memories made during rush make is a unique opportunity. I hope that you will come to enjoy this experience with us and discover how much our system has to offer.
Thousands of men before you have joined IFC fraternities, and they regard their experience within the Greek system as some of the most important and rewarding commitments at the University. We are honored to have you on Grounds and hope you make the most of your time here. The information here will demonstrate the decorated history of fraternities as a source of leadership, brotherhood, and community at U.Va. for 160 years. We invite you to build upon their legacy.
Inter-Fraternity Council President
