The Northwest Panhellenic Council is the administrative and governing body that unites all five sororities. As Northwest's largest women's organization, Panhel works to foster a supportive environment that values scholarship, service and personal growth through a unified sisterhood. It coordinates all-sorority events, service projects, educational programs and formal sorority recruitment. Panhel works together to maintain high scholastic and social standards to strengthen the bonds of friendship and sisterhood through the sorority chapters.

The Northwest Panhellenic Council meets every Thursday @ 6p.m. If you have any questions we encourage you to e-mail: greek@nwmissouri.edu

I love being a member of Greek Life because it has provided me with many opportunities to better myself as a person. I have gained the confidence to try new experiences and join other organizations that I would have never thought of before. I have made lifelong friends across this campus and have met many people that have impacted my life. I wouldn't be the person I am today if it weren't for my involvement in Greek Life and I wouldn't trade this experience for the world.

My decision to go Greek is one that I would make over and over again if given the opportunity. Being a part of Greek life has given me so many new and different opportunities that I never imagined I would have. Being Greek has also helped me to grow as a person, a leader, a friend, and a member of a community. It has pushed me outside of my comfort zone in ways I never thought were possible. It has also taught me so many valuable lessons that I will carry with me for the rest of my life. I have been able to meet so many amazing people during my time as a Greek and have built relationships that will last for years to come. The values we strive to achieve as Greeks here at Northwest make me better as an individual and I would not change that for the world.

I love being a part of Northwest Greek Life because not only have I met some of my best friends, it has taught me to branch out of my shell and do new things. Greek Life has pushed me to do things I never would or even could do. This Greek community is as much as friends as my family and I am proud to be a part of such an amazing group of people.

Joining Greek Life at Northwest has changed me for the better. I've learned how to be more confident, handle many responsibilities, and have made numerous great friends. I feel more prepared to graduate college and begin a job that I know I will succeed at. I don't regret choosing to be Greek because the women that were at first strangers I can now call my family. It's been very a positive experience in my life!

I’m proud to be a member of the Greek community simply because it offers endless benefits and opportunities! Because of my fellow Greeks, I have gotten involved in more clubs and organizations than I ever thought possible. I have also gained networking and communications skills and realized the importance of service and philanthropy. Most importantly, I have learned how to hold myself to a higher academic and personal standard because I’m part of something so much bigger than myself. Having this community to grow and makes memories with has made my college experience unforgettable!

I love being a part of Greek Life because it provides so many opportunities for each member. It has helped me grow as friend, student, and as a person. Greek life allows each indivdual to give back to the community and to network across the nation. I have not only found life long friends in my chapter, but in several other chapters across campus as well. Be Bold, Be Greek!

I love being Greek because of all the wonderful opportunities that I have found in a sorority.  I have made amazing friends and feel completely at home with all my sisters.  I really have had the chance to be involved on campus as a leader through my own sorority and Panhellenic council.  I feel that going Greek is one of the most positive decisions I have made here at Northwest.

Going Greek was easily one of the best decisions I could have made. Sorority life helped me discover so many opportunities in academics and service leadership that I never would have experienced otherwise. It has shown me what incredible things students are capable of, and how Greeks can change lives and improve our community. Greek life means so much to me; it's challenging, rewarding and has allowed me to be true to myself while becoming the best version of myself I could possibly be. If you're considering adding a chapter to your life, please don't wait. Be strong, be you, be Greek.

Recruitment

Sororities at Northwest are premiere leadership organizations on for Northwest women. Women interested in becoming a member of a sorority are encouraged to go through the recruitment process. The recruitment process is a mutual selection process. The goal is to find the chapter where you have the strongest sense of belonging. Recruitment allows interested potential new members to meet current chapter members and learn about each organization, including its history and traditions, the founding values, leadership opportunities and campus involvement.

The Greek BBQ starts recruitment each year. Join us on August 26th from 11a.m. - 1p.m. by the Belltower to meet the sororities. This year there will a Greek Forum on August 26th from 6-8p.m. in the Ballroom. This Greek Forum is to inform women going through recruitment what to expect and to clarify the rules and regulations. On September 4th and 5th at 5p.m. there are information sessions being held in the Ballroom. This is where women who are interested in joining can have any questions answered before formal recruitment starts.

Women interested in sorority life can participate in Formal Sorority Recruitment, September 6-9, 2012. Women must have at least a 2.6 G.P.A. This week long process allows potential new members the opportunity to interact with each Northwest sorority through organized recruitment parties. 

After Formal Recruitment is completed, there may be opportunities to attend Continuous Open Recruitment (COR) events, which are casual, sisterhood events typically held on campus. COR events are organized by each individual chapter.

If you wish to register for recruitment now click the link above. To register later attend BBQ & info sessions!

You must be registered to attend formal sorority recruitment for the fall.
