Inter-Fraternal Council

 

he fraternities of Georgia Southwestern State University have a strong tradition of leadership, community service, and brotherhood. In order to uphold fraternity morals and standards, the Inter-Fraternity Council or IFC, was established. IFC serves as the governing board for four fraternities at Georgia Southwestern. IFC endeavors to vanish fraternity barriers, and constitute inter-fraternalism throughout the Greek system. The Inter-Fraternity Council office is located on the 3rd floor of the Student Success Center. If you have any questions, please contact the Director of Campus Life or see a member of the IFC for more information.

The IFC consists of 4 male Greek Organizations:

Kappa Sigma Fraternity
Pi Kappa Phi Fraternity

Chi Phi Fraternity

Nationally Founded: December 24, 1824 Established at GSW: May 27, 1997 Colors: Scarlet and Blue Symbol: Chakett National Service Project: Boys & Girls Club Local Service Project: American Cancer Society

Chi Phi Fraternity is the oldest men's social fraternity. Since 1824, Chi Phi has existed to promote truth, friendship, and personal integrity. During the 1996-97 academic year at GSW, 15 men resided on the second floor of D-wing in Complex III. They became close friends and participated in everything from intramural sports to Relay for Life. These men desired not only to be friends but to be brothers. After careful planning and consideration, these men decided that the Chi Phi Fraternity expressed the same ideals and morals as they. On May 27, 1997, these 15 men were initiated into and became the founding fathers of the Delta Pi Chapter of the Chi Phi Fraternity. The Delta Pi Chapter was established as a new alternative to the Greek life on the GSW campus. Over the course of our existence, our accomplishments have reflected the ideals set forth by our founders. The Chi Phi Fraternity has maintained the highest GPA of any men's social fraternity on campus. Brothers of Chi Phi also participate in such campus activities as The Student Government, Residence Life, C.A.B., Zephyrs, BCM, Concert Choir, and the Orientation Team. Our participation in campus activities have helped us to improve some of the negative stereotypical views of fraternities. Along with academic excellence and campus participation, Chi Phi exists to promote brotherhood and friendship. The experiences we have shared have helped us to become closer as brothers. The bond of brotherhood comes from each of us and can never be compromised.

When you join Pi Kappa Phi, you are making friends for a lifetime, friends you stay in touch with long after graduation. But, Pi Kappa Phi is much more than a social fraternity; it is a leadership, service, and academic society helping our members make the most of their collegiate experiences and their lives. Become a better man, become a Pi Kapp. Our house includes a beach volleyball court, basketball court, large dance floor, game room (ping pong, pool, etc.), chapter/trophy room, and 4 double occupancy bedrooms.

Kappa Sigma Fraternity is one of the oldest and largest college fraternities. It became the first Greek letter fraternity when it was founded in Bologna, Italy, at the beginning of the 15th century. It was reborn in the New World at the University of Virginia on December 10, 1869. Kappa Sigma is also one of the most prominent collegiate fraternities. Kappa Sigma is basically a college social fraternity. Its goals are many, but all center around the promotion of friendship, loyalty, and brotherhood. Brothers find that working and living together in a fraternity situation can be one of the most educational and rewarding experiences. Striving to be number one in academics, campus leadership, community service, sports, and brotherhood has been the goal of Kappa Sigma since it was founded at Georgia Southwestern in 1969. Kappa Sigma is brotherhood. Membership is not merely a college term endeavor, but a lifetime affiliation of brothers.
