Panhellenic Council

Panhellenic Council

The Panhellenic Council is the governing body for all five National Panhellenic Council (NPC) sororities on the California State University, Chico campus and unites every sorority woman, regardless of individual affiliation. Together the council members strive for overall Greek unity, while working to unite the sorority women and strengthen their values through cooperation, common interest, talents, and skills brought from each chapter. Panhellenic provides many opportunities for involvement in campus life and also in the Greek community outside of one's individual sorority.

Panhellenic Sorority Recruitment Process

The recruitment process for the Panhellenic sororities is formal and structured. Registration is required, prior to the week of formal recruitment. Participants visit each chapter on the first day of formal recruitment, and fewer chapters each day following until Bid Day.  Recruitment is a mutual selection process between the potential new member and the chapter.  It is strongly recommended that potential new members attend every event during the Formal Recruitment Process to have the opportunity to meet women in each chapter.  To participate in formal recruitment, a woman must be enrolled in at least twelve (12) units at CSU, Chico, at least a second semester freshman, and have a cumulative collage GPA of 2.5 or higher.
