Panhellenic Council

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.

No matter the letters we LEAD together. No matter the letters we SERVE together. No matter the letters we COME together. No matter the letters we have FUN together!

The 2019 Panhellenic Council Welcomes You to Troy

About Us

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 5, 2019 through August 10, 2019. Finalized dates will be posted by March 15, 2019 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, 2019 and ends on July 26, 2019. Be sure to check out our Sorority Recruitment Guide for details concerning recruitment.

"Through high school, sorority life was something that I was completely unfamiliar with, and coming to Troy I had no intention of going through recruitment.  However, after some convincing from my IMPACT Leader and costs established to give my parents, I registered last minute!  My roommate and I went through together, making a few friends along the way, caught up i the whirlwind of events and many, many new faces.  Because I had no prior knowledge of any of the houses, I was able to come into Recruitment with a completely clean slate.

It was a tough week of prioritizing what I wanted out of my Greek experience, but the best advice came from a sister I spoke with halfway through the week. She told me to search for the sorority that I felt I could be myself, the most comfortable, and where I could thrive and grow as a woman of virtue!  I want to share this advice with you as you potentially embark on this adventure of recruitment as it helped me to find my home in Chi Omega.  Since joining the sorority over five years ago, I have been overwhelmed with the amazing experiences, growth, and connections Greek life has given me. From encouragement in my scholastics and my faith, to networking for my future job opportunities, I couldn't be more thankful for Greek life here at Troy, and the advice given to me by a sister during my recruitment week!"
