Welcome from the President
On behalf of the Panhellenic Council, I am happy to welcome you to the University of Central Arkansas! Our council is very excited that you have decided to Go Greek! We have many resources available to you on this website as well as on our social media accounts. Our Greek Community is ever growing and changing and we hope to give you as much up to date information as you need in order to help you make the best decision for yourself.
Coming to the University of Central Arkansas was an easy decision for me, but the transition from high school to college was not what I expected it to be. I got involved in the campus community in a lot of different ways, but the most impactful decision I made was to Go Greek! Identifying as a Greek woman has helped me learn so much about myself and the kind of leader that I want to be. When I came to college I never would have imagined that I would be sitting on the Panhellenic Council, nevertheless serving as the President for over seven hundred amazing women. Being a Panhellenic woman has given me so many opportunities to meet outstanding women who work hard every day to make their dreams a reality. These women prove to me every day that being a Greek woman means more than just the letters in her Instagram bio and the multitude of Comfort Colors shirts. Panhellenic women work fearlessly to achieve their goals with the constant support of thousands of women worldwide who they are proud to call sisters. These women are leaders and develop themselves through scholarship, leadership, friendship, loyalty, and community service. Our Panhellenic Council is so excited to help you begin this journey and help you to see why so many women have grown through the sisterhood of Greek Life.
Every woman’s journey is different, which means the process of becoming Greek is not always an easy one. That is why our council is here to help you! We hope to provide you with as much information as possible so that you know you are making the right decision throughout recruitment and are happy to come home to your new sisters on Bid Day. Each of our five Panhellenic sororities are home to incredible women and one day they may become home to you as well. We are happy to answer any questions that you may have and are excited to see what your journey as a Panhellenic woman looks like!
Go Greek! Go Bears!
