Fraternity Life


A fraternity is an organization of men who devote themselves to principles such scholarship, leadership, service and brotherhood.

Each fraternity at Thiel has their own unique identity. Fraternities host social and philanthropic events open to the entire campus and within their own organizations, participate in intramurals and offer opportunities for professional development with leadership conferences and other programs.

Interfraternity Council

Founded in 1909, the North-American Interfraternity Conference is the trade association representing 73 international and national men’s fraternities. Through advocacy, collaboration and education, the NIC works to ensure that fraternities can operate in an environment conducive to their success.

IFC, Interfraternity Council, belongs to the NIC and is the governing body for fraternity life at Thiel.  It is comprised of three members from each fraternity.
