Welcome

WELCOME to Georgia College! On behalf of the Panhellenic community, we are so excited to have you! 

Going into my last few semesters at GCSU, I reflect on how impactful my time here has been. Coming from a small town, I did not know many people at Georgia College, and really wanted to be involved in something bigger than myself. I was looking for exceptional friendships I had never experienced and a group of women I would be proud to call my sisters. Panhellenic has gifted me that and so much more!

The Panhellenic community here is definitely something special. “Pan Love” is a phrase that we use to show the support and encouragement seen in our eight diverse chapters. While being unique in their own ways, the one common characteristic they share is the close-knit sisterhoods found in all of them. Our chapters strive to develop confidence and long-lasting friendships, empower members, and service through philanthropic ventures.

I am so grateful to be able to serve as the 2021 Panhellenic President. With all of the challenges and trials 2020 gave us, there are many changes we are still adapting to, especially with Panhellenic. It can be very difficult to adjust to all of the new ways of life, but I can’t help but think of the motivation and encouragement I have and will continue to receive from my Panhellenic sisters. As president, I hope to instill the values Panhellenic holds dear, while continuing to make an impact on and off campus. No matter your journey, I hope you find your home in our Panhellenic community.

With Pan Love,

Linley Brooks

Circle of Sisterhood

The Circle of Sisterhood Foundation is a mechanism by which all sorority women can stand together across identity to make a difference in the lives of millions of girls and women around the world. Collectively, sorority women are one of the largest communities of college-educated women in the world while not even seven percent of the world’s population – men and women combined – has college degrees, and two thirds of all illiterate adults are women. Standing together as one community, we are creating sustainable change by removing barriers for girls and women to have an equal chance for rewarding lives and livelihoods through schooling, the learning of a trade, or even certifications or degrees.

Whether founded in the 1800s, 1900s or in the 2000s, sororities place a high priority on volunteering and community engagement. Together, sororities donate millions of domestic dollars every year to help eliminate life-shattering diseases, raise awareness for important health issues, as well as tackle local issues such as domestic-violence against women, illiteracy among youth, environmental stewardship, and aid to persons with disabilities and those aging. 

As the world is changing and boundaries are disintegrating, technology allows us to live in a global neighborhood. Today’s sorority women understand and appreciate others on a global scale, realizing they have the collective influence to make a difference for those experiencing marginalization and oppression both domestically and globally. As college educated women, we know the value of achieving an education, and we believe that every girl in the world deserves the opportunity to go to school.

Sorority membership is a big commitment, it has the potential to positively impact your life for years to come.  We hope that you are serious about wanting to be a part of our Panhellenic community.  If you are, here are a few things you need to know:

  • Time Commitment- Like the best things in life, the more you put into your sorority experience, the more you will gain from it. Sorority life is a great place to learn time management as you will have the opportunity to participate in leadership roles, serve on committees, volunteer and, of course, make new friends. During your time as a new member, you will attend weekly new member education sessions. Some of the sorority chapters will also invite you to attend their weekly chapter meeting. Our sororities are also going to support your academic endeavors by offering study sessions and major-mentor groups. Georgia College and our Panhellenic Council require our Panhellenic sorority women to participate in a unique membership experience that houses second year sorority women in apartment style residences at The Village apartments. Women will be living alongside their sorority sisters, as they participate in a women's leadership development program.
     
  • Financial Obligation - The cost of membership is different for every group. Each organization sets their own budget that is voted on by chapter members. Some chapters’ budgets include all the year’s activities, some chapters’ budgets do not include all activities; instead, members pay only for the events and activities they attend. A range of the costs of common fees charged by sororities at Georgia College for the first year of membership averages between $1,000 - $1,750.
    • The 1styear is always the most expensive time.  Below is a list of potential fees.  Fees denoted with a (*) are considered one-time fees.
      • Inter/National Fees Sisterhood Events
      • Date/Social Events Philanthropy Events
      • Initiation Fee*
      • Badge Fee*
      • Parlor/Housing Corporation Fee Technology Fee
      • T-shirts
         
  • Sorority Living-Learning Community – Georgia College offers a unique living experience for Panhellenic sorority women.  Women who participate in formal recruitment, accepting a bid from one of our CPC sororities, participate in the Sorority Living-Learning Leadership Community.  Students move into the facility the beginning of their sophomore year, and participate in leadership development programs that focus on Women Empowerment.
Recruitment Recommendation Letter Submissions

A Recommendation Letter (also referred as a "rec" or "reference") are often submitted to chapters in support of a potential new member (PNM).  Please be advised that each sorority has a different policy on the submission of recommendation/reference information.

Recommendations can only be made by sorority alumna, and depending on the organization, a collegiate member of a chapter.  Each organization will have a different requirement for the submission of said reference/recommendation letters.
