The Interfraternity Council Executive Board is currently monitoring the coronavirus in the state of Kansas.  As of right now, our fraternities are allowed to host public recruitment events at their facility, in a virtual format, or in public places.  Chapters are expected to abide by all local, state and federal laws, including the wearing of face coverings when social distancing is not able to happen.

The Interfraternity Council is able to recruit 365 days a year and does not have a formal process.  We recommend that you research and learn about all of our seven (7) fraternities before making your decision.  Below are recommendations for how to have a successful recruitment experience.

How can I learn about all of the fraternities? 

Social media is a great way to learn about the seven (7) fraternities within the Interfraternity Council.  Each chapter has their social media listed on their individual webpages.

Each of the fraternities will recevie a call list of incoming students (including transfer and freshman) so be prepared to receive either a phone call, text message or email.  If you would like to be removed from the list, please email greeklife@wichita.edu.
