RECENT PANHELLENIC NEWS:
To provide a positive environment that fosters the Panhellenic spirit.
To promote in women leadership, diversity, scholastic achievement and service through relationships within and beyond the Panhellenic community.
Greek life was founded at the University of Florida in 1884 and there are currently four Greek councils, the Interfraternity Council, Multicultural Greek Council, National Pan-Hellenic Council and the Panhellenic Council, with a combined total of 64 chapters.
The Panhellenic Council serves as the governing body for 18 National Panhellenic Conference chapters on campus, creating a sisterhood of more than 4,000 women. Through educational, service, and social activities, the Panhellenic Council strives to develop its members and the University of Florida student body. Our vision is to promote women in leadership, diversity, scholastic achievement, and service through relationships within and beyond the Panhellenic community.
Each chapter has about 250 members. Each of the 18 chapters either has or will have a house on or near campus, with the majority being on Sorority Row, that houses typically 40-60 girls. Each chapter has meals. Each chapter is governed by their own set of advisors and house management team from their national organizations. Each chapter hosts a philanthropic event each year that benefits their national service organization. The Panhellenic Council and Panhellenic Executive Board oversees each chapter and the council as a whole.

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.
