Historical Note

The Interfraternity Council is composed of representatives of the different fraternities on campus. The council sets regulations on alcohol and hazing for the fraternities on campus and also acts as a liaison between the fraternities and the university. The council enforces a grade point average for the members of the fraternity and works to create service projects for the benefit of the community.
