FROM OUR PRESIDENT
On behalf of the Panhellenic Council at the University of Florida, I offer my sincerest welcome and thank you for expressing interest in our community. My Panhellenic experience began the day I sat in my seat at Recruitment Orientation. I remember being captivated by the President’s passion, poise, and confidence. Though at the time, I did not yet know how to “set the standard,” a curiosity compelled me to join forces with the most empowering body of collegiate women. In the fall of 2017, this council embraced me with open arms, welcoming me into a sisterhood of over 4,000 women. I had no idea at the time, what that experience would render me, but it sparked a series of lessons I would learn to make me better: a better person, a better sister, a better leader.
Panhellenic womanhood is defined by a culture of empowerment, sisterhood, and support that has made this council a staple of the Gator Nation. Since 1948, the Panhellenic Council has been dedicated to its vision of “promoting women in leadership, diversity, scholastic achievement and service through relationships within and beyond our Panhellenic community.” With the beginning of a new decade, in 2020, I plan to lead this council into increased prosperity, staying true to the values of our council and the pillars of the greater Florida Greek community. Should you be considering membership in our council, I encourage you to utilize the resources on our website and discover the true values of Panhellenic womanhood. Together, I hope to uphold our “maintenance of fine standards, for serving, to the best of our ability, our college community.”
