The Panhellenic Council is made up of traditionally-housed sororities who all fall under the National Panhellenic Conference. Here at the University of Iowa, the Panhellenic Council was founded in 1882 with Kappa Kappa Gamma and Pi Beta Phi. Since then, we have grown to represent 14 chapters in our community. Each of our chapters has specific values and membership standards, but the whole community stands for leadership, scholarship, friendship, and service!
Panhellenic members excel in and outside of the classroom, and are involved in hundreds of other student orgs, on and off-campus jobs, volunteer positions, and activities. Members of Panhellenic enjoy deep friendships within their own chapter, and with members of other chapters and councils. The bonds of sisterhood/siblinghood reach far beyond the collegiate experience, and as we like to say, “it’s not four years, it’s for life!”
Members of the Panhellenic community are held to high standards and expected to uphold all bylaws, rules, and regulations. Joining Panhellenic means joining a group of people who will push you to grow and become the best version of yourself!
If you feel as though another council could suit your needs better, please visit the Fraternity and Sorority Life Website to learn more! We have two other councils with sororities, the Multicultural Greek Council and the National Pan-Hellenic Council.
