Since 1872, Michigan State University’s Fraternity and Sorority Community has been a thriving part of campus life. Joining a Fraternity or Sorority brings life long relationships, opportunities for personal and career growth, and a national network of alumni across the globe.

Ingham County

East Lansing, MSU and Ingham County Health Department remind community of measures in place to protect area from COVID-19.

With the start of Michigan State University’s (MSU) spring semester, the City of East Lansing, Ingham County Health Department (ICHD) and MSU are joining together once more to urge the greater East Lansing community to continue with COVID-19 safety measures.

It remains vitally important at this time for all community members, including student residents who may have just returned to the community, to continue to abide by all of the orders and guidelines that have been put into place to reduce the spread of COVID-19.

IFC Social Vote

Interfraternity Council (IFC) Presidents’ Council Extends Social Moratorium

The COVID-19 pandemic has undeniably changed how fall semester at Michigan State University and living within the East Lansing community looks and feels. It forces the Fraternity & Sorority Life (FSL) community to adapt and find ways to not only stay engaged, but to meet these unprecedented challenges with understanding, compassion and a focus on the health and safety of the community.

The IFC released a Press Release on December 16, 2020 including the following: Continuing to operate in the same way as before the pandemic, we would be posing substantial risks to ourselves, faculty, staff, and other members of the East Lansing community. We have a responsibility to the community to be proactive in this situation and continue the necessary precautions to help mitigate the spread of COVID-19 as we await the vaccine.
The main precaution we are taking is the cancellation of Type I, II, and IV Social Events, as defined by the IFC/PC joint social policy. As defined by the IFC Constitution, a vote to alter IFC social policy bylaws needed to take place.  The IFC Presidents’ Councils, consisting of all Chapter Presidents from the 28 IFC chapters, have voted and unanimously approved a moratorium on these Social Events for the entirety of the Spring 2021 semester. The Interfraternity Council Executive Board fully supports recommendations made by Michigan State to suspend these events. If we are to return to in-person experiences, it is imperative that we all do our part. We truly appreciate our chapters’ compliance, as it will take our entire community’s cooperation to slow the spread of COVID-19.
Aditionally, here you will find a letter sent by Michigan State University President, Dr. Stanley for Members of the Interfraternity and Panhellenic Councils: IFC Letter from President Stanley.pdf

The Fraternity & Sorority Life Staff is actively working with the university, national headquarters, and City of East Lansing this fall.
