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.

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.

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
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
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.
