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: firstname.lastname@example.org

I love being a part of Greek Life because it not only gave me the opportunity to network with people inside and outside of the Greek community, but it has pushed me way beyond my comfort zone to work towards my highest potential--both as a college student and a person. Greek Life has also provided me with countless ways to give back to the community and connected me with national philanthropic organizations. The values of my chapter run parallel to those within my own life, which has allowed me to broaden my own definition of those values.
Major: Elementary Education
& Special Education
The decision to go Greek was the best decision I've made in college and has been a life-changing experience. The Greek community at Northwest is my home away from home and my family. Being Greek has given me countless opportunities to become involved, excel academically, grow tremendously as a person, and let my leadership skills shine. I do not know where I would be today if I had not gone Greek!
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.
Major: Public Relations
I have enjoyed my experience in Greek Life thus far because of all the opportunities it has presented me with and all of the people I have had the chance to meet. I've been to Chicago twice on behalf of my chapter, I have had the privilege of serving on two executive boards, been to numerous conventions and so much more. It is such a great way to get leadership experience and network with people on and off campus.
Nutrition and Dietetics
I love being Greek because it has made my college experience all that I hoped it would be. Being Greek has given me the opportunities to get involved on campus and in the Maryville community. I have learned communication and networking skills, how to be a leader, and how to work with others. Most of all, I've made so many memories with my friends and sisters that I will never forget!
If I didn't join a sorority my college experience would not be the same at all. I always have someone there to go do something with, cry with, talk to, or just hang out!
Majors: Business Management and Marketing
Greek life is something near and dear to my heart because it has truly helped me realize what I am capable of. There are so many remarkable Greek women and men on this campus! Constantly being around these people has made me grow so much already. The valuable memories, friendships, and experiences that I have had the opportunity to have as a Northwest Greek woman will stick with me for the rest of my life.
Major: Applied Advertising
I love being Greek because it has allowed me to grow and develop as a student and individual. I've learned to work closely with different personalities and different situations that help me discover new and improved ways of finding solutions to stressful problems. I've made so many friends and created memories that will last me a lifetime. I am so proud to be apart of this Greek community. GO GREEK!
Major: Interactive Digital
Media - Visual Imaging
I love being Greek because I enjoy sharing the same values of scholarship, leadership, service, and sisterhood/brotherhood with other women and men that are my age. I love being a part of something that has helped me grow into the leader that I am and it continues to help me grow every day. I would never change my decision to go Greek, because it was the best decision I have ever made.
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.
