The National Panhellenic Conference is an umbrella organization for twenty-six women's sororities nationwide. Lehigh University's Panhellenic Council, often referred to as Panhellenic or Panhel, oversees the nine Panhellenic chapters located on our campus. For more information about Lehigh's Panhellenic sororities, visit the Chapters page.


the panhellenic creed

We, as undergraduate members of women's fraternities, stand for good scholarship, for guarding of good health, for maintenance of fine standards, and for serving, to the best of our ability, our college community. 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.
