Kickoff and Walk arounds

Interested in becoming a member of an IFC Fraternity?  Come join the UCSB Interfraternity Council as they welcome all potential new members to the kickoff of recruitment week.  The IFC Executive Board will discuss the rules and procedures for recruitment events throughout the week and answer any questions you might have about the process.  Hear their testimonials as to why they joined a fraternal organization, and how they have grown as a result of their membership.  The council will then walk you around to all the chapter facilities to learn more about the individual fraternities and show you where they will be located throughout the week.

All interested individuals should visit all ten chapters.
