Interfraternity Council

The Interfraternity Council (IFC) is the governing body of the four fraternities at DSU. Every man who joins an IFC member group is a member of IFC. Every group has a representative or chapter delegate who attends meetings of the IFC. These individuals are the communication link between the IFC and their chapters. The IFC provides opportunities for interaction among fraternities with events that promote four areas: Scholarship, Leadership, Social, and Philanthropy.


DSU fraternity men take great pride in our level of scholarship achievement. Both the new member and the Interfraternity Council’s grade point average typically exceed the university’s all-men’s average. Fraternities place great emphasis on encouraging, developing and monitoring academic progress.

Tutors, study programs, and other incentives provided by each chapter are indicative of this goal. Additionally, time management skills for fraternity men improve as they work to attain desired scholastic goals while meeting chapter responsibilities.


Fraternity membership provides many opportunities for you to be involved in leadership roles. As a chapter officer or coordinator of a chapter event or community service project, you can further your leadership skills. Each chapter has committee structures that allow you to be involved in all operational aspects of the organization. Additionally, chapters provide educational programming in such areas as time management, leadership, diversity, communication, and overall health and well-being. Greeks also participate in university-wide leadership activities  Fraternity men can be found in the Student Government Association, Union Program Council, and many leadership and academic honor societies. Many other organizations have fraternity men as members and many of the organizations are lead by these men. Involvement and active participation in activities enable fraternity men to develop the knowledge and skills necessary to succeed in the fast-paced job market of today.


The Delta State University fraternity system provides a diverse selection of events to expose members to a wide variety of social programs and events. Formal, homecoming, Greek week, and chapter retreats all support the goal of bringing men together to develop the bonds of brotherhood. Development of values, traditions, and honor contribute to the Interfraternal commitment of social programs enabling personal development as well as development for each chapter as a whole. All fraternities maintain a responsible social policy promoting interfraternal standards for careful planning of safe social activities.

Delta State Interfraternity Council chapters support a strong tradition of service to our campus, community, state, and nation. Each year fraternity men donate thousands of dollars and, more importantly, thousands of hours to various charities. Each fraternity focuses on national philanthropies, but all donate services to local agencies. Because of strength in numbers and organizational qualities found in fraternities, these men achieve great success in efforts to aid in the community.
