A Message From Your President
My name is Greg McNicholas and I am the 2021 Interfraternity Council President and
on behalf of the entire Penn State IFC, I’d like to welcome you to our website.
With roughly 3,500 active members making Penn State home to one of the largest
Interfraternity Councils in the nation, we strive to exemplify what it means to be a
Fraternity man through leadership development and community engagement--all while creating a safe, inclusive, and accountable environment.
Nationwide, we have entered a new era of Greek Life, and we believe it is our duty to
not only continue to usher our members into a culture driven by academics,
philanthropy, and involvement, but ensure that all stakeholders and the Penn State
community as a whole can reap the benefits as well. Please feel free to contact any
member of the IFC Executive Board with any questions or comments--we would be
happy to help with any inquiry you have!
About the IFC
The Interfraternity Council is the governing body for the 37 Fraternity chapters at the Pennsylvania State University. The executive board is comprised of 11 affiliated members of these fraternities and serves to unify and oversee operations related to the actions and events held by the members of the Interfraternity Council.
The Interfraternity Council organizes and hosts many events throughout the year for both the Penn State and State College community members. In pairing with the Panhellenic Council, National Pan-Hellenic Council, and the Multicultural Greek Council, it has contributed to a successful number of accomplishments that have promoted service and leadership within itself and its members. The Interfraternity Council continuously strives to maintain a positive relationship with its surrounding community members and continue its efforts in displaying the importance of contribution to its members.
