The Interfraternity Council was established at Appalachian State University in 1973 as the governing body of the men's social fraternities. The IFC currently recognizes 14 fraternities on the AppState campus, and is comprised of ten executive members and two delegates from each chapter. Even though each fraternity is unique, the IFC helps to unify the individual chapters to make the fraternity community stronger. The IFC promotes scholarship, community service, social development, public relations, personal development, risk management, and cooperation among the men's organizations. Recruitment of new members begins with recruitment during the first few weeks of each semester. Be sure to follow the Interfraternity Council Instagram page @AppstateIFC to stay up to date on all fraternity events.
