Activities


Greeks lead very active lives on the Birmingham-Southern campus. In addition to the many Greek functions that occur throughout the year, we are also involved in every organization and activity on our campus.
Because of the involvement and contributions of its Greek members, our Panhellenic Council was awarded the highest possible award at the National Panhellenic Conference this past year in California.  The Council, which is comprised of representatives from each of the eight sororities on campus, was honored with the Overall Excellence Award.

Scholarship is very important to all of the sororities. This past Fall, the All Sorority Grade Point Average was 3.195, which was well above the All School Grade Point Average of 2.757. In addition, we have been recognized nationally for the outstanding scholastic achievements of our sororities. At the 2007 Southeastern Panhellenic Conference in Atlanta, we received an award recognizing our Outstanding Programming Efforts in Public Relations. In October 2007, we received the National Panhellenic Conference Biennial Award for Outstanding Public Relations as well.

Greeks take a very active role in the various student organizations. Phi Beta Kappa, Mortar Board, Omicron Delta Kappa, President's Student Service Organization, Alpha Lambda Delta, Phi Eta Sigma, Who's Who Among American Universities and Colleges all have Greeks among their members. Greeks are also busy in Student Government, housing staff, newspaper and annual staffs, theatre productions, 'Southern Volunteer Services, Concert Choir, art and ballet - just to name a few.

Each year, the Panhellenic Council sponsors a wide variety of philanthropic projects. This past year saw an amazing amount of philanthropy work, both on and off campus. In the Fall, Panhellenic organized the eighth annual Halloween on the Hilltop, a carnival for local area school children. BSC Panhellenic received an award for recognizing our Outstanding Community Service for Halloween on the Hilltop at the 2001 Southeastern Panhellenic Conference. In addition, we won the Gamma Phi Beta Philanthropic Award for Halloween On the Hilltop in 2000. While the campus was preparing for the upcoming exams and the holiday season, the Panhellenic Council brought holiday cheer to the children at Big Oak Ranch. Through this worthy cause, Panhellenic was able to brighten the spirits of the kids at BOR. In the Spring, the sororities helped to raise money to benefit The Children's Miracle Network by participating in Sigma Chi's Derby Days.  Also in the Spring, Panhellenic organizes a campus-wide Silent Auction to raise money for campus beautification.  All of these projects are in addition to the many philanthropic endeavors of the individual sororities and their members.

Formal dances, band parties, and informal get-togethers are important parts of each sorority's social calendar. They also plan house parties at the beach and holiday parties for underprivileged children. They are members of our BSC athletic teams such as soccer, cross country, air rifle, volleyball, and tennis. They also participate on intramural teams such as flag football, soccer, basketball, softball, water polo, ultimate Frisbee, and volleyball! 

No matter what your interest, there is a challenge and a place for all. We hope that you will join us in our quest for excellence and achievement this year.
