My name is Payas Parab and I have the pleasure of serving as the Vice President of Recruitment for the UC Berkeley Interfraternity Council. You are about to embark on your college careers, and on behalf of the 1000+ fraternity men on this campus, welcome to Berkeley and congratulations on your decision to attend Cal.
As you begin your journey, you will be introduced to the vibrant social, academic, and extracurricular life that this university has to offer. I encourage you to consider rushing an IFC fraternity. As a member of the IFC community, you will have direct access to a brotherhood of college men, opportunities for personal advancement and achievement, external involvement in service and social activities on campus, and a world-wide network of engaged alumni.
Don't consider yourself a "frat guy"? Don't worry because many of our potential members do not either, only to end up joining. We encourage you to check out some of our recruitment events and speak to some of our many diverse members. After all, whether in Greek life or not, we are all Cal students spanning from across the globe that share similar passions for high achievement.
The recruitment period for this fall will be Thursday, August 24th - Wednesday August 30th. During this week, we encourage you to check out several fraternities that might be right for you through really fun (and free) events including but not limited to paintball, barbeques, horse races, and many more.
