Greek FIREifc

First-year Initiates Reaching Excellence


To prepare new members for membership in the Greek community, in giving them the skills to become future leaders in all aspects of the campus, while creating a community within new members and the entire Greek community.


Implementation will be through voluntary participation by IFC chapters based on a recognition system. During this introduction year, any chapter who participates, at any level, will be recognized both on the IFC website and recruitment book as well as have a letter sent to their national or international headquarters. Participation in the Greek Fire program is not mandatory but is highly encouraged. The programs are designed to supplement your individual chapter’s new member education program and increase the unity between our IFC chapters.

Note: The events listed below are merely suggestions. If you feel that your chapter already participates in a program that would fit in a category below, please e-mail the VP of Membership Development, Brenden Lowe, at Approval must be granted before the event in order for it to count towards the Greek Fire program. If you have any questions or need help scheduling events, please contact Brenden Lowe.

  1. Attend either a Rho Gamma event or an event listed on the following page.

  2. If the event is not one listed on the following page, e-mail the VP of Membership Development, Brenden Lowe, at
