Welcome

Panhellenic 2015

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

If you are interested in joining one of our sororities, we encourage you to visit the recruitment link on this website to learn about our different processes,

I went Greek for a number of reasons. I want to be involved in college, Greek life provided that with all the leadership positions that are available in a chapter. I wanted a sisterhood, women that will always stand by me through the good and the bad. I went Greek for someone to hold me accountable, I wanted good grades in college and knew if I went Greek there would be someone to help me and hold me accountable for my grades. I also went Greek because I want to help people, I love community service and Greek life really showed me that they were about helping people. Being Greek constantly pushes me to be the best I can be. One of the best decisions I made in my life was going Greek, and I fall in love with the Greek community each and every day.

My favorite philanthropy event that the Greek community participates in is Bowl for Kids' Sake. It is an even that benefits our local Big Brothers Big Sisters program and since I am a Big Sister it means a lot to see our community come together for such a great program!

While there are lots of activities through Greek Life, my favorite event that happens is Greek Week. It's a week full of fun, engaging activities that the whole Greek community comes together for. From rec night to the talent show there's a whole lot of healthy competition, but also there is a ton of unity between chapters. This one week is one of the best weeks of the year!

My favorite thing about being a part of such an amazing sisterhood is the sense of belonging and knowing I found my home away from home. Activities can range from obstacle courses and games to watching movies in the chapter room together. We can literally be doing nothing and find a way to find comfort in one another, trust each other, and simply be there for each other. I love knowing we always have someone to turn to when needing a shoulder to cry on after a long week of tests, or laughing until tears are rolling down our faces. I always have someone to tell everything to, on good days and bad. My sister are always there for me and I cherish that every day.

Greek life has given me a plethora of connections and networking opportunities. Not only does Greek life connect me with other people on campus, but with Alumnae and actives across the nation. Thanks to all these connections I have already been given a number of opportunities to get involved her at Northwest and beyond.

I think my favorite event that Greek Life puts on is probably Greek Week. We had it when I was a freshmen and they decided to bring it back my junior year. I think the reason why this is my favorite event is because we as Greek member come together a whole and we hand out for a week. We get to see the different ideas other sororities and fraternities think of and go off of that. My favorite part about that week is because of rec night. I love getting involved and playing against other teams!

Greek life has made such a positive impact in my life over the last three years. When you join Greek life you know you are going to meet new people and create friendships, but I had no ideas Greek life would offer so much more. The support system the Greek system offers is unlike any other. The support this community has given me has pushed me to step out of my comfort zone and given me the confidence to take on responsibilities I would not have though I was cable of before. Greek life encourages me to better myself and my community every day.

To me, my letters mean family, sisterhood, and growth. The reason I joined my sorority was because it felt like a home away from home. I felt 100% comfortable with the people around me, and I could be my weird and quirky self without judgment! I also know that I have 100 plus women there for me, and if I ever needed anything they would drop what they were doing and come to my rescue. I also have help leadership positions through my sorority, and have grown immensely as a person because of this. The bonds I have made and the experiences I have had will stick with me the rest of my life, and I have my letters to thank for that.  

Recruitment

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 between the potential new member and the chapter. Participating in sorority recruitment does not guarantee a bid from a chapter. 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 28th from 12:30 - 1:15 p.m. by the Bell Tower to meet the sororities. This year there will a Greek Forum on August 28th from 11:30 a.m. - 12:30 p.m. in the Union Ballroom. This Greek Forum is to inform women going through recruitment what to expect and to clarify the rules and regulations. On August 31st there will be information sessions held in the Station. You may attend the 6 p.m. or 7 p.m. time slot. This is where women who are interested in joining can have any questions answered before formal recruitment starts and then take a tour of the recruitment route that will be used.

Women interested in sorority life can participate in Formal Sorority Recruitment, September 9-12, 2016. Women may participate in recruitment with any GPA, however, individual chapters have different GPA standards. This weekend 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.
