Letter from the IFC President
On behalf of the Executive Board and the entire Interfraternity Council (IFC), I would like to welcome you to the IFC community at the University of Louisiana at Lafayette!
One of the best things about becoming a Ragin' Cajun is having the opportunity to join one or more of our 200+ organizations on campus. For you, this may include joining a Greek organization. Joining a fraternity is one of the best ways to become involved on campus and also in the community. The Greek system here at UL Lafayette strongly promotes leadership, loyalty, respect, friendship and, of course, brotherhood. By joining a fraternity, you will gain lifelong friendships with others who have chosen to become Greek as well.
By becoming Greek, I have excelled tremendously, both socially and academically. Everything I have done since my first day at UL can find its roots in my decision to join a fraterniy. This decision has led to all of my job and summer internships, my numerous other involvements on and off campus, as well as my best friends. I can honestly say joining a fraternity was one of the best decisions I have ever made, and I hope you will do the same.
Everyone's experience in Greek Life is different though. This was just mine, and there are many others like it, but there are many unlike it too. What unites our experiences is the desire to better ourselves, the people around us, and our community.
I know that you will enjoy everything that Greek life has to offer. The experience will not only enrich your college career, but also help shape your future in order for you to be successful. I am glad that you have chosen to join the Ragin' Cajun community, and I am looking forward to meeting you next semester.
