Interfraternity Council

The Interfraternity Council at Grand Valley State University is comprised of eight member organizations that abide by the rules and expectations of the IFC Constitution. Member chapters of The IFC participate in Formal IFC Recruitment, Greek Week, and all Fraternity & Sorority Life activities. IFC is the student-led governing body that supports and unifies the fraternities and communicates with the larger GVSU and Allendale community to promote a positive image for fraternity life on campus.
