Sorority Recruitment

Do you know someone who will be participating in sorority recruitment this fall?? Be sure to share the Sorority Life website with them. The site is hosted by National Panhellenic Conference, and offers potential new women an overall perspective on greeks- from famous greeks, to information on recruitment and even an opportunity to sign up for an electronic newsletter....

While I am proud to be an Alpha Chi Omega... it is important to recognize the presence of all 26 member groups.. As individually each group is unique but together they are complete.. & comprise the National Panhellenic Conference. Together Panhellenic women have been present/influential in our nations history and in government!!!
