A Statement From The IFC President

Tragic Passing Saddens Aggie Greek Community

 

 

College Station, TX: Joe Little tragically passed away just as he was beginning his college career at Texas A&M University where our community now grieves his loss. 

Over the last few days, incorrect statements have been reported in the media about the circumstances surrounding his passing. College Station police are investigating after a justice of the peace ruled the cause unnatural, which - we were told - is standard procedure in such cases. 

To be clear, Texas A&M is not investigating the situation as a fraternity related incident at this time. The Office of the Dean of Student Life is reviewing the weekend activities of the fraternity to which Mr. Little had just been accepted. The review is looking at whether any rules were broken related to an A&M- sanctioned organization.

Our continued sympathy goes out to Joe's family, friends and the brothers of Phi Gamma Delta.

Bid Day Fall 2018 Press Release

 Successful Fraternity Recruitment at Texas A&M

College Station, TX: Sunday, August 26 marked the end of formal recruitment with the commencement of Bid Day for the Texas A&M University Interfraternity Council (IFC), the governing body for eighteen fraternities at Texas A&M. After a long and grueling week of recruitment, chapters came together at the steps of the Jack K. Williams Administration Building to celebrate their new recruits and the upcoming semester. 

Under the supervision of Connor Lanpher ‘20, IFC’s vice-president for recruitment, fall fraternity recruitment ran smoothly and efficiently. With 570 men registered for recruitment, we are excited for the 417 new members who accepted their bids this fall.  This results in an eighty percent retention rate of all men participating in recruitment this year - a six percent increase from last year.   

This was also a semester of few firsts.  To start, IFC used a new recruitment platform called Campus Director to manage the registration and bidding process.  IFC also expanded the BID Day bus drop-off points from one to three, reducing traffic and congestions at the intersection of Bizzell and Old Main.
