FarmHouse - Iowa State Chapter

311 Ash Avenue
Ames, IA 50014

The Iowa State chapter of FarmHouse Fraternity is consistently a top chapter in the Iowa State Greek Community as well as in the FarmHouse International Fraternity. Our motto is "Builder of Men." FarmHouse places emphasis on the development of four main aspects of life: intellectual, physical, social, and spiritual. Members of FarmHouse are from a variety of backgrounds; you do not need an agricultural background to be a member of FarmHouse. A wide variety of majors are represented by FarmHouse men which allows for great educational support for any incoming student. FarmHouse has a strong reputation on and off campus, and we are looking forward to continuing to "build men" through our great traditions.
