The Panhellenic Council is the governing body of the twelve sororities at Virginia Tech. The Council meets every Wednesday to discuss matters affecting sororities and the Greek community.
The Panhellenic Council is made up of thirteen officers and one delegate from each of the twelve sorority chapters. Through a committee structure, the Panhellenic Council is able to effectively organize and assist in events of mutual concern to all sorority women. Panhellenic helps to oversee events such as Homecoming, the Fraternity and Sorority Life Awards, Standards of Excellence, and Sorority Recruitment, as well as the changing and updating of the Panhellenic Constitution and Bylaws.
Once a year, Virginia Tech's Panhellenic Council attends the Association of Fraternal Leadership and Values, during which members are able to share ideas and attend sessions with speakers who are passionate about the affairs of women in Greek life. In past years our Panhellenic Council has won awards recognizing our excellence in recruitment, risk management, public relations, diversity, and community service. We have also won awards for having the highest Greek women's grade point average in the region.
Panhellenic Council is an excellent way for the women of Virginia Tech's NPC sororities to get involved on campus. Delegates are the voting members of their chapters on all community-wide issues. Elected and appointed officers are able to head up different programs and work with women from all chapters to plan activities of mutual concern and interest to all sororities. Panhellenic Council gives women unique opportunities to work with many officials on campus and throughout the Blacksburg community. Panhellenic Council gives women the chance to be involved, not just in their individual chapter but also in the entire community, and most importantly offers unbiased support to all twelve sororities on our campus.
