National Panhellenic Conference Groups (NPC Groups)

The National Panhellenic Conference, founded in 1902, is the umbrella organization for twenty-six international women’s fraternities and sororities. Each member group is autonomous as a social, Greek-letter society of college women and alumnae. Members are represented on over 620 college and university campuses in the United States and Canada and in over 5,300 alumnae associations, making up over three million sorority women in the world.

The Panhellenic Council groups take in new members once a year. They hold sorority recruitment before the school begins in August. The projected dates of sorority recruitment are August 8, 2016 through August 13, 2016. Finalized dates will be posted by April 1, 2016 on the website. Entering freshmen and upperclassmen are allowed to go through sorority recruitment. You must have a minimum GPA of a 2.2 either from high school or another college to join a NPC group. On line registration begins on May 1, 2016 and ends of July 25, 2016. Be sure to check out our Sorority On-Line Recruitment Guide for details concerning recruitment.

The Panhellenic Creed

We, the undergraduate members of women’s fraternities, stand for good scholarship, for guarding of good health, for maintenance of fine standards, and for serving, to the best of our ability, our college community. Cooperation for furthering fraternity life, in harmony with its best possibilities, is the ideal that shall guide our fraternity activities.

We, as Fraternity Women, stand for service through the development of character inspired by the close contact and deep friendship of individual fraternity and Panhellenic life. The opportunity for wide and wise human service, through mutual respect and helpfulness, is the tenet by which we strive to live.
