The National Panhellenic Conference (NPC) is composed of 26 international sororities/women’s fraternities, six of which exist on Wright State’s campus. NPC organizations exist to provide a good democratic social experience; give value beyond college years; create, through their ideals, an ever-widening circle of service beyond the membership; develop the individual's potential through leadership opportunities and group effort, and fill the need for belonging.
The word "Panhellenic" was derived from the Greek word "pan," meaning "all," and "Hellenic," meaning "Greek." The Wright State University Panhellenic Council (CPH) serves as the governing body for six national sororities on campus (Alpha Omicron Pi, Alpha Xi Delta, Delta Zeta, Kappa Delta, Kappa Phi Lambda, and Zeta Tau Alpha). The Panhellenic women work together to unite sororities, focus on common goals, and create a network of support for chapters and members. We provide many interactive programs for sorority women.
The Panhellenic Creed
We, as the 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 friendships 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.
There are two ways to join a Panhellenic organization:
Fall Formal Recruitment
The process of sorority recruitment involves approximately one weekend of opportunities to explore sorority life by getting to know all five chapters and then making a mutual selection to join the chapter where you feel like you belong. In the weeks leading up to recruitment, potential registered members are placed with a recruitment counselor. Recruitment counselors answer questions and bring potential members to pre-recruitment events to show some of what sorority life is all about.
Spring Continuous Open Bidding (COB)
Continuous Open Bidding (COB) is an informal recruitment process used by Panhellenic sororities to add new members outside the primary recruitment period. COB offers an alternative path to joining a sorority, emphasizing a more relaxed and individualized approach compared to the formal recruitment process.
This process allows sororities to reach their maximum allowable number of members, often referred to as "total." It's important to note that the amount of COB slots varies by chapter, and unlike primary recruitment, where the CPH handles much of the recruitment experience, during COB, the recruitment experience varies from one organization to another, providing a personalized and often exciting experience for those involved.
