Dear Future Panhellenic Women,

I am so excited to welcome you to Rutgers University! As a brand new college student, or Rutgers student, you might find yourself asking, “Where do I fit in? Who are my people? When will I feel at home here?”  All of these questions were answered when I joined the Greek community on campus. Rutgers Greek life will allow you to flourish socially, academically, and professionally as a college woman and provide you with endless opportunities to get involved.

We are the Panhellenic Council: a community of 10 organizations and almost 1,000 women. We dedicate ourselves to upholding the 4 pillars of Scholarship, Leadership, Service, and Friendship for Life in all of our endeavors. By embracing these values, we strive to better ourselves and empower our community to effect positive change. The Panhellenic community fosters Individual and organizational growth, helping, guiding, and supporting our women to succeed throughout their undergraduate studies and beyond.

At Rutgers University, the Panhellenic community provides opportunities for all women. I encourage each and every one of you to join our wonderful chapters on campus. Panhellenic believes in you; I believe in you! We are looking forward to seeing the remarkable things you will do as part of our Greek community. Welcome to Rutgers, and GO GREEK!

“Sisterhood is many things. It’s a warm smile on a cold & rainy day, a friendly hug, a cheerful hello…It’s all that a good & lasting friendship is, only better. It’s treasured. It’s sacred. It’s knowing that there will always be someone there for you. It’s dreams shared & goals achieved. It’s counting on others & being counted on. It is real.”
