Panhellenic

The Panhellenic Council is the governing body of all sororities at Marian University. Each year the council collectively sets goals that assist and the overseeing and improving sorority life. Each executive officer remains unbiased and always has the best interest of the Greek system at the forefront of her goals. The council abides by the Unanimous Agreements as written by the National Panhellenic Council in order to create a more unified and fair sorority system. Meetings are held twice per month and new officers are in place every spring semester via a rotation process. One delegate from each sorority represents her organization at the meetings and takes back the information discussed. The Panhellenic Council is instrumental in overseeing recruitment (both informal and formal) in addition to Greek Week, judicial proceedings, and community service.
