Letter from VP Recruitment We, as the Wichita State University Panhellenic Council, are so excited that you have taken us into consideration when looking to get involved on campus! Each year we have the opportunity to welcome hundreds of women into our Greek family and we hope you are one of them. Our council values and upholds the highest standards of Character Development, Friendships, Scholarship and Service. By joining our community, you will find yourself gaining the largest support system you can find on a college campus, a desire to achieve academic excellence and a passion towards philanthropic work! The main goal of our community is to grow our members into well-rounded and value-driven women. Through mentorship and sisterhood, we develop a sense of determination to maintain the success of the women who have paved our way. Sisterhood events, formals, volunteer work and cheering on our favorite teams are just a few of the experiences that will one day be your favorite college memories. The Wichita State University Panhellenic Council has given me countless opportunities and connections that I am so grateful for. Without this community, I would not be the same woman I am today. The women around you are your peers, potential friends, and future PC sisters. Remember that through this time we are here to support you, and to trust the process. I cannot wait for you to grow with us, and join a sisterhood for life. Sincerely, Lauren O'Donnell VP Recruitment

Circle Of Sisterhood PC's National Philanthropy "The Circle of Sisterhood Foundation is a mechanism by which sorority women can stand together as one community to help improve the lives and livelihood of girls and women worldwide by removing barriers to education. Collectively, we are one of the largest communities of college-educated women in the world while not even seven percent of the world - men and women combined - has college degrees, and twothirds of all illiterate adults are women."

- Circle of Sisterhood


Harbor House PC's Local Philanthropy "Harbor House at Catholic Charities is more than a safe shelter for survivors of severe violence. Harbor House uses outreach advocacy services to guide survivors of abuse through the judicial, medical and DCF systems. Harbor House provides a variety of services each year to hundreds trying to leave abusive relationships but who never step foot in the shelter. All services are provided with the goal of breaking the cycle of violence against women and their children."
