What does being Greek mean to you?
Being a Greek at the University of
Florida means that I am part of one of
the largest support networks in the
nation. Whether it be from the brothers
of my chapter, or an alumni from years
ago, I know that I will have guidance
and encouragement during all of my
endeavors.

Words of Wisdom: From the second
you join a Greek Organization, a door
of opportunities will be opened. From
intramurals, to philanthropy, please
make the most of these opportunities
and do not be afraid to try anything and
everything that interests you.

What does being Greek mean to
you? Being Greek to me means that I
set a standard for all other students on
University of Florida's campus. Being
Greek does not make me a leader, but
being a leader is what makes me Greek.
Being Greek requires that I embody
high scholastic and ethical standards
at all times and continue to show a
progressive interest in my campus
community and greater society.

Words of Wisdom: Choose an
organization that leaves you with a
deep conviction to grow and thrusts
you to be a greater person morally,
academically, and socially. Being a part
of a Greek-Lettered Organization is
not for the faint at heart, but for those
that will forever be committed to the
purpose on which that organization was
founded.

Council

The Interfraternity Council (IFC) at the University of Florida is the governing body for 26 men's fra-
ternities on campus. The Interfraternity Council is responsible for ensuring communication among
the fraternities, as well as coordinating specific events, including Fall and Spring Recruitment, the IFC
New Member Education Speakers and other Greek activities.

IFC Recruitment

recruitment during the Spring and Fall.

Recruitment Tips
1. Do your research! Joining a fraternity is a big
decision. It is an experience that will be with you
for the rest of your life. In order to make the
best decision, you should do research on the IFC -
website (www.greekgator.com)
2. Explore your options. There are 26 different IFC
chapters that provide a variety of options. Visit
and learn about as many chapters as possible.
3. Ask questions. Ask about the chapter's cost,
involvement on campus, academic success, and
new member process.
4. Make your own decision. Do not miss out on a
chapter because of peer pressure or stereotypes.
You have to make the decision that is best for you.

of the most important and valuable
decisions of my life. Joining a Greek
organization is easily one of the best
ways during your college career to lay

28 I The Guide to Florida Greeks








Housing Information

For many members of the Florida Greek community, living in their chapter
house has proven to be a convenient and economical way to enhance their
Greek experience. Currently, 39 of the 63 chapters at UF have chapter houses.
Each house is managed on a day-to-day basis by a full-time House Director, and Pnhellenic
Panhellenic _6o-O si,,o- -:,5,
is overseen by a local or national house corporation board, a group of alumni
that oversee the house director, chapter finances, and advises the upkeep and
remodeling of the facilities. Many chapter houses provide you with study areas, MCC 26 26o N,'A
TV rooms, computer labs, 10-15 meals per week, and on-site parking.

How much does it cost to live in the house? Unk\ersi', Housing N/A N,'A -4
For most chapters the fees for living in the chapter house are comparable to or in many cases
less-than living in a residence hall or apartment and having an on-campus meal plan. Room
and board, meals, dues, and event costs are included in one lump sum therefore making it
cheaper than other living situations.

Can I live in the chapter house as a freshman?
Most chapter living facilities house only active members (usually sophomores and juniors).
Almost all New Members and freshmen live in their respective residence halls or off-campus
apartments or houses, because most chapters fill their houses during the previous spring
semester. Members who live "out of house" usually frequent the chapter house during the
day and eat lunch and dinner at the house.

What if I purchase an on-campus meal plan?
If you purchase an on-campus meal plan and then join a fraternity or sorority with a chapter
house, the chapter will assist you in transferring your meal plan to the chapter house. The
meal plan will be pro-rated and transferred to the chapter house at the cost of the new meal
plan. Any remaining balance will be left on your Gator 1 card as declining balance.








FAQs

When can I join a fraternity or sorority?
Interfraternity Council: Beginning of Fall or Spring semester
You must be currently enrolled as a student at the University of Florida
Multicultural Greek Council: varies by chapter
National Pan-Hellenic Council: varies by chapter
Panhellenic Council: Formal recruitment Fall semester, the week before classes start;
Informal recruitment beginning of Spring semester (not all chapters participate)

For the most up-to-date information, all interested men and women are encouraged to visit
the Sorority & Fraternity Affairs website at: www.greeks.ufl.edu

Do I need to purchase a meal plan if I join a sorority or fraternity with
a house?
It depends. Housed chapters have their own meal plan programs and provide 10-15 meals a
week. Because snacks and weekend meals are usually not included, many members of the
Florida Greek community find it convenient to purchase a campus meal plan for missed meals
and extra food. For most students we recommend declining balance. For more information
on UF meal plans please visit www.gatordining.com.


How much time does being in a sorority and fraternity take up?
Being a member of a sorority and fraternity is a significant time commitment. For most peo-
ple, the time requirement would be equivalent to taking another 3-credit class (3 hours/wk).

How are sororities and fraternities held accountable?
While self-governing, each of our individual chapters are held accountable by multiple
entities. Chapters are responsible for meeting the standards that are set forth by their inter/
national organization, their governing council, as well as the University of Florida through
Sorority & Fraternity Affairs. In addition, each chapter is required to maintain an internal
judicial system that is designed to hold members accountable for their actions.

How can I find out specific information about organizations?
Information such as grades, conduct, etc. is available on each of our chapters at the www.
greeks.ufl.edu website. Once on the website, click on the Resources tab and scroll to the
Chapter Profiles section at the bottom of the page.

What is the University's stance on hazing?
UF seeks to promote a safe environment in which students may participate without compro-
mising their health, safety or welfare. For more information, please see page 3.
