Interfraternity Council (IFC)

The IFC is a governing body for fraternities on campus. The IFC is comprised of an Executive Council made up of members from different fraternities and the president of each fraternity recognized by the IFC. The Interfraternity council is governed by the IFC Bylaws. In addition to the great efforts put fourth by the individual chapters, the IFC promotes unity with collective efforts in community service, philanthropy, athletics, and recruitment. One of the councils newest community service initiatives is the IFC Adopt-a-Block program, which includes 10 members from each chapter going out into their surrounding neighborhoods and picking up any trash in the area.

Interfraternity Council (IFC) Fraternity Recruitment Process

The Interfraternity Council conducts membership recruitment within the first three weeks of each semester. Typically, there are a number of informational and social events that all chapters participate in to provide interested men the opportunity to meet active members from several fraternities. We encourage you to ask questions about how they will distribute invitations for membership (commonly called a "bid") and any other questions you have about the process of recruitment and joining the fraternity.  To participate in formal rush, a man must be enrolled in at least twelve (12) units at CSU, Chico, at least a second semester freshman, and have a cumulative collage GPA of 2.35 or higher (Individual chapters may have a higher GPA requirement to join).
