A Message From Our President
The Boys from Old Florida since 1884, fraternities at the University of Florida have played an integral role in creating much of the rich history and tradition that make our university the world-class institution that it is today. Through high standards of character and integrity, fraternities have fostered and influenced the development and growth of many of today’s most prominent leaders and visionaries, both during their time in Gainesville and long after they have left the university. Our fraternity alumni have achieved incredible success in all aspects of life, from the Capitol to the playing field and everything in between.
Our current members continue to set the highest standards of leadership, service, scholarship, and dedication to the University of Florida community. Today, fraternities at the University of Florida continue many of the traditions that have led to our proud legacy, while working to create a vision for future success for generations to come. On behalf of the 2,500+ members of the Interfraternity Council, I would like to welcome you to our website. Please take the opportunity to explore what makes the University of Florida IFC one of the nation’s largest and most successful fraternity councils, while ensuring that it is and always will be great to be a Florida Gator.
