What Is Panhellenic?
The National Panhellenic Conference (NPC) is the national coordinating body of 26 member sororities. Locally, the Texas Tech Panhellenic Council is the governing body of the 12 NPC sororities on campus (often referred to as chapters), composed of 7 executive council officers and delegates from each chapter.
The Panhellenic Council coordinates Recruitment, provides programming and activities for sorority women, and works as a self-governing support system to the sororities at Texas Tech University. The council promotes the four founding values of Fraternity & Sorority Life Community at Texas Tech strives to uphold success and excellence in its members. Texas Tech's Panhellenic Community is made up of over 2,500 undergraduate members.
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.
