Welcome to the University of Utah! Here at the "U", we have a rich heritage and tradition of IFC fraternities promoting academics, brotherhood, service, and friendship to the community that spans over 100 years. We encourage you to branch out, join a fraternity on campus, and be a part of our Greek community for not only the next four years as a student, but for life.
Fraternity Recruitment takes place year round with with opportunities throughout the year to meet all of the IFC Chapters.
If you talk to any of our fraternity men on campus, they will tell you that joining a fraternity and joining this Interfraternity Community at the University of Utah were some of the BEST decisions they have ever made. Joining a fraternity is not membership for four years, but for LIFE. If you want to experience a truly well-rounded college experience, we hope you to check out our fraternities on campus.
Fall 2018 Recruitment
The Interfraternity Council has 10 member fraternities that will participate in and host Fraternity Recruitment activities beginning on Friday, August 18, 2018 and ending on Saturday, September 1, 2018. This Fall we will be combining aspects of both formal and informal recruitment. There will be a combination of both community-wide IFC recruitment events, in which all fraternities will participate, and private chapter recruitment events. The IFC recruitment events are intended to showcase each fraternity and allow men wishing to join to interact and connect with members of each fraternity. The private chapter events are intended to allow you to focus your time and energies with your favorite chapters.

With the new installation of Bid Day, a majority of bids will be given on the second Saturday of each semester. However, this should not stop you from reaching out to IFC and fraternities on campus any time of year. Meet with executive board members of the fraternity/s you are interested in for information about their organization and recruitment process.
Things to Keep in Mind
- This is an individual experience. Go into recruitment with an open mind. Click here to learn more about our organizations and status on campus.
- The “best chapter” and the best chapter for you are often different. You should join the fraternity where you feel the most comfortable, has members you enjoy spending time with, and has goals, interests, and values aligned with yours own.
- Alcohol, drugs, and hazing are not tolerated in the University of Utah Fraternity and Sorority Community and should not be a part of the recruitment, nor new member process. If you feel uncomfortable with any part of the recruitment or new member process, contact the Office of Fraternity and Sorority Life, the Office of the Dean of Students, or University of Utah campus police.
