Every woman who joins a sorority becomes a member of the Panhellenic Council. It is Panhellenic that unites every chapter woman, regardless of individual chapter affiliation. Panhellenic was founded to:
- Unite chapter women
- Strengthen their values
- Establish common goals
During recruitment, Panhellenic takes an active role in coordinating all aspects of the recruitment process, including the organizing, programming, and scheduling of recruitment events.

The Panhellenic Creed
We, as undergraduate members of women’s fraternities, stand for good scholarship, for guarding 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.
“The most impactful thing about my being in a sorority would be the confidence I have gained. I truly believe that, if it were not for my sorority experience, I would still be searching for the woman I want to become. Sorority life has changed me, but this change is something I will cherish for the rest of my life — it made me a better woman and human being.” Shayna Anglin, Gamma Phi Beta – Kendallville, Indiana, nursing
“Students at Valparaiso University are given an amazing opportunity in fraternity and sorority membership. Volunteer and leadership experiences are available in abundance. Fraternity or sorority membership provides a home away from home, values to guide your decisions, and people to support you in your endeavors.” Jeannette Paige, Panhellenic President – Plainfield, Ill., business management
“My Valpo experience would be incomplete without joining a sorority. Class prepares the student. Fraternity and sorority life prepares the whole person. Being a sorority member has equipped me with more than just a closet full of letters — it has sewn together my academic achievements and leadership opportunities, making me confident in my future.” Gabi Kosloske, Panhellenic Vice President of Standards and Conduct – Grafton, Wis., exercise science/pre-PT
