Greek Leadership Goes National Greek leaders from all councils attended the Central Fraternal Leadership Conference this month in Indianapolis. Presidents of chapters and councils attended this nation wide conference to grow as leaders and learn about other Greek systems. Panhellenic President Mary Beth Overton said attendees could choose sessions to experience on a wide variety of subjects. “I went to sessions about recruitment, managing leadership with other responsibilities, safety on campus, and more,” said Overton. UT’s group said they loved getting to know people from other chapters and see how they function. Overton said it was “great to see panhellenic presidents from other chapters around the US. I could see how their panhellenic worked, and everyone was excited about our new sorority villiage.”
Panhellenic council attended the AFLV conference in place of the usual SEPC conference. This conference was similar, but included all councils such as IFC, MGC, and NPHC.
Panhellenic Pan Pals! The tweets and photos about Pan Pals have been overwhelming! Panhellenic ladies are getting to know our Pan Sisters and spreading the love just in time for Valentineâ€™s Day!

Chapters can participate in socials together, hold crafting parties, have dinner, or do any kind of fun bonding activity!

Recruitment 2013 On January 30th Panhellenic hosted our Spring Recruitment. Sigma Kappa, Pi Beta Phi, and Delta Zeta were the three chapters that participated and the next day each received a handful of beautiful new members! Weâ€™re gearing up for our Panhellenic Preview weekend where each of our 13 chapters opens their doors to beautiful PNMs. The PNMs will be seniors in high school and women who are already in our University of Tennessee community, but arenâ€™t a member of our Panhellenic community. So far we have 70 women signed up, but our goal is 300 so spread the word!!! All of the information and registration information can be found at sorority.utk.edu!
Gamma Chi Gamma Chi class is well under way! They have already been matched up with Gamma Chi buddies, who are girls in different chapters who are paired up to be a support system throughout class and the week of recruitment! Every week we recognize an anonymously nominated Gamma Chi of the week! This week our Gamma Chi of the week is Lauren Leath for being such a positive and encouraging Gamma Chi! Over the next four classes we will tour suites and houses in preparation for Panhellenic Preview! Also we have selected Sisterhood Chairs, Emma Chessor and Kayla Van Scoy, and Philanthropy Chairs, Andi Abbajay and Annie Blackwood, to organize bonding activities for us to do together and our Philanthropy event supporting the Circle of Sisterhood!
Sorority Village Construction on Sorority village has come a long way since the fall. Seven chapters are completely moved in, and eleven are expected to be living there by the fall. Women living in the houses love their experiences so far, and are so thankful for this amazing opportunity!
Kappa Kappa Gamma is set to move into their new house on February 23!

Panhellenic Council Directors Greek Leadership Initiative Director: Katherine Johnson Greek Leadership Initiative started off with the retreat which was a great foundation for the program. At the retreat, the delegates were able to meet 75 new faces, listen to great speakers, and learn about diversity/ stereotypes, chapter unity, and being greek at the University of Tennessee. We are now in the process of our class where the delegates meet once a week and participate in team building activities that promote self-growth and leadership. To continue the program we will be participating in a service project that is led by our Community Service chair Dev Patel from Sigma Beta Rho. As the Panhellenic GLI Director, I hope that the Greek Leadership Initiative will inspire the delegates to become better leaders in their individual chapters and at the University of Tennessee.
