Panhellenic Council

The campus Panhellenic Council (PHC) is the governing body for the two women’s sororities. PHC consists of six officers and two chapter delegates. Both chapters rotate officer positions annually and elect or appoint their own chapter delegates. Chapter delegates attend bi-weekly meetings to discuss issues important to the entire community. The campus Panhellenic Council seeks to provide quality educational programs, service opportunities, and social events for member chapters.

The Panhellenic Creed

We, as 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.

Formal Recruitment

Sorority Recruitment Logo

Sorority formal recruitment is hosted by the Panhellenic Council in the fall and is a great way to meet women from both of the national chapters on campus. Formal recruitment is an excellent way to begin building your network of friends  and to explore all that sorority life has to office at UWL. Formal recruitment includes pre-recruitment events and recruitment rounds. Pre-recruitment events are opportunities to speak with current members and get any questions answered about sorority life. Recruitment rounds allow you time to spend with each chapter to help you find your best fit! 

For more information and to register for sorority recruitment, please go to CampusDirector.  Please contact us with any questions at

Continuous Recruitment

Both sororities engage in continuous recruitment throughout the rest of the academic year. This style of recruitment is designed to meet the needs of potential new members by providing more of a one on one experience. Continuous recruitment includes individual and small group meetings with members from the chapters, informal events, and informational sessions.
