Liaison to non-NPC Sororities – Emily Kasten
Our Panhellenic Council is proud to have three member chapters that offer something a little different to their members. Alpha Omega Epsilon is a professional and social sorority for women who are majoring in Engineering and the technical sciences. Omega Phi Alpha focuses on sisterhood-based community service and leadership development . Phi Sigma Rho is a social sorority for women in Engineering and Engineering technologies. Our Liaison works to ensure that accurate info about these member groups is shared with interested women so they are aware of all the membership options within the Council.

Laine is a Junior from Mount Laurel, NJ and a member of Alpha Gamma Delta. She is studying Communications with a Specialization in Public Relations and Human Resource Management.

Saumya is also a member of Alpha Gamma Delta and is in her Senior year at Rutgers. She’s a Psychology major from Secaucus, NJ “If there’s any advice I would give a Potential New Member, it’s to go into recruitment with an open mind and to have no expectations!

Recruitment Counselor Coordinators – Niamh Freeman & Hannah Greer
Administer the selection and training process for 30 Recruitment Counselors (better known as “Pi Chis”) who are sorority members serving as guides to women participating in the formal NPC sorority recruitment in the spring.
Niamh is a rising Senior majoring in Elementary Education. She recently began classes with the Graduate School of Education and is working towards a Masters in Elementary and Special Education. She’s from Millburn, NJ and is a member of Alpha Gamma Delta. Her advice to a Potential New Member? “Please remember to be yourself and do not be afraid to talk about your interests (as quirky and random as they may be) because who knows, the woman you are talking to might love the exact same thing! I know it may sound scary to open up to a total stranger (especially if you are shy or self-conscious like I was when I went through formal recruitment), but the personal growth, friendships and memories that may result from this process will 100% be worth it. Trust me, I know because I am speaking from experience!!”
Hannah is a Junior working towards a degree in Public Health and Nursing. She’s a Delta Gamma from Ringoes, NJ. “Advice that I would give to a Potential New Member is to remember that your recruitment is different for everyone so don’t compare your experience to your peers. Everyone finds their own way home.”
