The History of Our Community 

The story of the University of Iowa Fraternity and Sorority Community started in 1866 with Beta Theta Pi, as the first fraternity on campus. We are proud to celebrate more that 150 years of tradition, brotherhood, and the ability to further develop young men to become better leaders.

This community has since grown, now having 17 chapters within the Interfraternity Council. Giving these chapter the opportunity to impact the lives of more then 1,500 men. The Interfraternity Council (IFC) is the governing body of all 17 of our chapters. 

Our Mission: To develop better men that are not only leaders in this community and on this campus, but beyond. To achieve excellence through integrity, courage, and personal growth. To educate and positively impact each other. To provide the opportunity to live a principled life, to thrive, to serve and to belong.
