Greek Life

Panhellenic Council

The Panhellenic Council is comprised of sisters from each of the three sororities—Alpha Chi Omega, Alpha Omicron Pi, and Zeta Tau Alpha—who are members of the National Panhellenic Conference. The Council’s purpose is to promote unity and cooperation among all Greeks, as well as overseeing recruitment events and bids.

As an active part of the Washington College community, the delegates foster growth and responsibility in the academic, social, emotional, and civic aspect of a college’s woman’s life by sponsoring social events as well as guest lectures designed to enrich the undergraduate experience. The Panhellenic representatives cooperates with member sororities and the College administration in concern for high moral and social standards.

PANHELLENIC CREED

“We, as undergraduate members of women’s fraternities, stand for good scholarship, for guarding of good health, for maintenance of fine standards, and for serving, to the best of our ability, our college community. Cooperation for furthering fraternity life, in harmony with its best possibilities, is the ideal that shall guide our fraternity activities.

We, as fraternity women, stand for service through the development of character inspired by the close contact and deep friendship of individual fraternity and Panhellenic life. The opportunity for wide and wise human service, through mutual respect and helpfulness, is the tenet by which we strive to live.”
