Alpha Delta Phi Becomes Penn State’s 50th IFC-Recognized Fraternity

The Penn State Interfraternity Council welcomed Alpha Delta Phi as Penn State’s 50th IFC-recognized fraternity following a vote at last night’s President’s Council meeting.

 

 

ADPhi is new to the IFC, but it’s not new to Penn State. The group has had a chapter here since 2002, but for one reason or another, chose not to seek IFC recognition until now.

It was widely anticipated that ADPhi would seek approval from the IFC for recognition. Benefits are numerous, including a vote on President’s Council, participation in IFC events, and all the clout and resources that come with being a recognized fraternity. The group made its intentions clear on the fraternity’s website as recently as September.

“Current Brothers of the Nittany Chapter are looking into joining the IFC at Penn State,” it said. “In order to improve recruitment and ensure a future at Penn State, members feel it is time they see what the IFC can offer them. Vice President Matt Rathbun has already been in contact with the IFC director about what would need to take place in order to make this transition.”

The chapter will now undergo a one-year probationary period under IFC rules. During this time, the fraternity can participate in IFC events but they cannot vote on new business.

A big congratulations go out to Penn State’s 50th IFC fraternity. Best of luck to all the brothers, current and future.
