Greetings, Class of 2022 -
On behalf of the entire Interfraternity Council (IFC) community, welcome to GW! My name is Ali Akbar and I am this year's IFC President. The purpose of the Interfraternity Council is to promote fraternity life on campus and provide a forum for our members to discuss the issues that affect us in a collaborative environment. Please do not hesitate to reach out to me or any of the IFC Executive Board members if you have any questions about the Formal Recruitment process here at GW!
The IFC represents the 15 fraternities here at GW. Our mission is simple: to advocate, collaborate, and educate. Fraternity and Sorority Life (FSL) is the largest constituency of students at the university, with almost 33% of the student body participating. Joining FSL is a fun and exciting experience; we encourage you to join us for Formal Recruitment this Spring (Jan. 2019).
Fraternities create an environment for our men to excel in academics, increase campus involvement, and capitalize on leadership opportunities. The skills acquired and the networking opportunities available will not only add to your experience at GW, but stay with you through graduation and beyond. The best way to find out if Greek Life is right for you is to register and go through the Formal Recruitment process in the Spring. Freshman interested in joining a fraternity can register for Formal Recruitment on Campus Director here.
IFC Vice President of Recruitment Jared Levinson and the 27 IFC Recruitment Guides (Rho Gammas) are your primary resources before and during the Rush process here at GW. The only way we can succeed as a community is for you to feel knowledgeable and empowered throughout Formal Recruitment. This may require you to step out of your comfort zone and ask a question, but again, that's what we're here for!
Welcome to GW, again. We can't wait for you to find your place here as a member of our Greek community.

The Interfraternity Council (IFC) is the umbrella organization that oversees all 15 men's social fraternities at The George Washington University. While these chapters have different histories, distinguishing characteristics, and members, they all share the central tenets of Greek Life at GW: scholarship, service, active leadership, accountability and community. The IFC is governed by an Executive Council and board consisting of each of the 15 IFC chapter presidents.
