Home / Student Life / Greek Life / Interfraternal Council

The fraternities that compose the Interfraternity Council of Georgia Southwestern State University have a strong tradition of leadership, community service, and brotherhood. The Interfraternity Council was established to uphold the moral values of each fraternity and to use the different foundations as a method of successful collaboration. IFC serves as the governing board for three fraternities at Georgia Southwestern. IFC commits to expunge fraternity barriers, and constitute interfraternalism throughout the fraternity and sorority community.

The Interfraternity Council recruitment has a 5 day official recruitment period in the Fall beginning on Tuesday and ending on Saturday.

Chi Phi Fraternity

Chi Phi Fraternity is the oldest men's social fraternity. Since 1824, Chi Phi has existed to promote truth, friendship, and personal integrity. During the 1996-97 academic year at GSW, 15 men resided on the second floor of D-wing in Complex III. They became close friends and participated in everything from intramural sports to Relay for Life. These men desired not only to be friends but to be brothers. After careful planning and consideration, these men decided that the Chi Phi Fraternity expressed the same ideals and morals as they. On May 27, 1997, these 15 men were initiated into and became the founding fathers of the Delta Pi Chapter of the Chi Phi Fraternity. The Delta Pi Chapter was established as a new alternative to the Greek life on the GSW campus. Over the course of our existence, our accomplishments have reflected the ideals set forth by our founders. The Chi Phi Fraternity has maintained the highest GPA of any men's social fraternity on campus. Brothers of Chi Phi also participate in such campus activities as The Student Government Association, Zephyrs, BCM, Concert Choir, and Storm Spotters. Along with academic excellence and campus participation, Chi Phi exists to promote brotherhood and friendship. The experiences we have shared have helped us to become closer as brothers. The bond of brotherhood comes from each of us and can never be compromised.

Kappa Sigma Fraternity

Kappa Sigma is the oldest and largest social fraternity in the world. It became the first Greek letter fraternity when it was founded in Bologna, Italy, in 1400. The first founding in the United States was located at the University of Virginia on December 10, 1869. Kappa Sigma has 230,000 living members, including over 20,000 undergraduates and 320 Chapters and colonies located throughout the United States and Canada. We are also the most valued with the lowest fee cost of any fraternity. Our three main initiatives as the leader of the fraternal world is Brothers in Action, Champion’s Quest, and A Greater Cause. Brothers in Action refers to living the ritual our founders established to instill the values of a gentleman. Champion Quest is an initiative to motivate and educate our active brothers in continuing to dominate the competition by initiating the best men on each campus. A Greater Cause is Kappa Sigma’s bold initiative to promote volunteerism, citizenship and service to the community. During the 2011-2013 biennium, Kappa Sigma members raised more than $3.6 million for charity and volunteered nearly 1.1 million hours of community service as part of the initiative. We are founded on four pillars: Fellowship, Scholarship, Leadership, and Service. Because these pillars support the foundation of each individual chapter, the Kappa Kappa chapter here at Georgia Southwestern focuses on brotherhood, academics, and giving back. Our chapter is recognized nationally every two years as being in the top 20% best chapters in the nation.

Joining Sigma Chi fraternity is a big part of my college career. Through Sigma Chi, I have learned to be better for myself and those around me. I owe a great deal of credit to the fraternity for the many memories and friendships that I have shared ever since I joined.
