Feature Friday: Mississippi State College Panhellenic

The National Panhellenic Conference is the umbrella organization for more than 575 College Panhellenic Associations. These associations, comprised of all the sorority women on campus who are members of an NPC member chapter, develop and maintain sorority life and interfraternity relations at a high level of accomplishment on campus. NPC is proud of the work that College Panhellenics do throughout the U.S. and Canada, including the work of the Mississippi State College Panhellenic.

  • 2014 College Panhellenic Excellence Award recipient
  • Located in Mississippi State, Miss.
  • Eight NPC organizations on campus
  • Total campus sorority membership is 1,977 women.
  • Added 714 women to their Panhellenic community in 2014-15
  • For the past two terms the all sorority GPA has been higher than all women’s average.
  • To promote academic excellence, the College Panhellenic hosted a joint 4.0 banquet with IFC and NPHC, where they treated the men and women from all three councils to dinner and gift cards for a local smoothie shop.
  • During the 2014-15 academic year the College Panhellenic raised $45,000 for philanthropic causes.
  • To promote the primary recruitment process, the College Panhellenic hosts a sorority spring preview day every April. The purpose of this event is to introduce potential new members to sorority life and to offer a glimpse into what the actual recruitment week could look like for them. This event helps spread the word about when registration for recruitment will open and where to register.
  • When describing the efforts the College Panhellenic coordinates to build and foster unity among sororities on campus, 2014 College Panhellenic president Anna Langford said, “We do not have to work very hard to promote unity because our Panhellenic women have worked themselves to create a friendly Panhellenic environment for each other. When Alpha Delta Pi colonized in 2013, our chapters jumped at the opportunity to help promote and develop the new chapter. They each had representatives that served as Alpha Delta Pi ambassadors. These sort of activities help create one of the most unified, friendly communities possible.”
