Welcome from the IFC President
On behalf of the Interfraternity Council, I would like to congratulate you on your decision to attend Texas State University and welcome you to the Bobcat family! There is no better place to spend your collegiate career than right here in the heart of Texas Hill Country. There is also no better time than now for you to become a part of the Greek family here at Texas State. We are at a pivotal point in our community and we need new leaders, new ideas, and new perspectives to continue advancing us to the best version of ourselves. In other words, we need people just like you.
Joining one of our 11 fraternity chapters will be one of the most fulfilling aspects of your college career. Membership opens the door to countless opportunities in leadership, personal development, and social connection. And not only are you joining the brotherhood of your local chapter, but you are also joining an organization that spans throughout the nation and unites its members in a common bond. Fraternity allows you to become a part of something much bigger than yourself for life, long after you graduate.
I’d like to personally thank you for showing interest in Greek life here and hope you make the leap to join us! If you have any questions about the community or simply adjusting to college life in general, please do not hesitate to reach out to me! I can be found in the IFC office on the 4th floor of LBJ or contact me via email at email@example.com. I hope to see you at the IFC recruitment events as you discover which chapter best fits you!
Eat ‘em up!
