Greetings and welcome to the official website of the Interfraternity Council (IFC) of East Tennessee State University.
A message from the IFC President, Adam C. Jarvis
I, and the incoming team, first want to welcome each of you to our webpage for the 2013 Interfraternity Council. Let me say what an honor and privilege it is to have been selected to serve as the 2013 Interfraternity Council President. While I think there is much work to be done, I also think that the outgoing Executive Committee did a phenomenal job and I can only hope to continue their efforts. Now, more than ever, the spotlight is on Greek Life and together I think we can excel.
I personally want to work on three specific areas involving fraternity life for the spring semester: 1) Academics 2) Member Retention and New Member Education 3) Hazing Education and Prevention. I look forward to sharing more and having further conversations about these topics and more throughout the year.
Recruitment is a continuing necessary focus in order to sustain the chapters' missions of leadership, fellowship, academics, and service. Always keeping an eye to recruitment is necessary and intelligent from an organizational standpoint. Efforts directed toward service are equally paramount. Fraternal community service does serve a commendable mission in the performance of good works to the ETSU and local community. Fraternities long honored practice of good works build goodwill in the academic and local communities as well as opportunities to assist good causes and further bond as brothers.
It's an exciting time on campus. I feel strongly that communication is the key to success. If there ever comes a point in time that you would like to see something different with the IFC or you are uncomfortable with the direction we are heading in, reach out to me. I am here as a resource, a friend, and a fellow fraternity man. I expect great things for 2013 and I look forward to working with each of you as well your respective Chapters in the upcoming semester.
Go BUCS and Go GREEK!
Adam C. Jarvis, President
