The Panhellenic Association is the governing body of the eight National Panhellenic Conference sororities at the University of North Texas. Panhellenic is an organization established to foster interfraternal relationships, to help collegiate chapters of the National Panhellenic Conference member groups, and to assist in maintaining the highest scholastic and social standards. The council enables the sororities to work together more effectively on campus.
The individual organizations are dedicated to personal development, academic achievement, leadership growth, and service to the campus and community. Activities may include community service projects, educational programs, leadership training, study halls, sisterhood retreats, intramural sports and fraternity mixers. Above all, sororities foster close friendships that will last through college and beyond. Panhellenic meets weekly to discuss the current issues facing the Greek Community, plan upcoming events, and serve as a link between UNT administration and individual organizations.
We, as Undergraduate Members of women's fraternities, stand for scholarship, for the guarding of good health, for the maintenance of fine standards, and for serving, to the best of our ability, our college community. Cooperation for furthering fraternity life, in harmony, with its best possibilities, is the ideal that shall guide our fraternity activities.
We, as Fraternity Women, stand for service through the development of character inspired by the close contact and deep friendship of individual fraternity and Panhellenic life. The opportunity for wide and wise human service, through mutual respect and helpfulness, is the tenet by which we strive to live.

Recruitment Recommendation Letters/Forms
Some sororities require a recommendation from an alumna member of that sorority before the sorority can offer her membership. A recommendation simply introduces a woman to a sorority to help the sorority members become acquainted with her prior to recruitment. However, it is important to understand that if a sorority requires a recommendation, it is the individual sorority's responsibility to obtain that recommendation. Recruitment participants are more than welcome to obtain their own recommendation letters, but it is not their responsibility to do so. All recommendations letters/forms can be mailed directly to the individual chapter or to UNT Panhellenic for distribution to the chapter. Recommendation letters/forms are not required in order to participate in recruitment.
Each national sorority has its own guidelines and often its own recommendation forms that its alumna members must use. The UNT Panhellenic Association does not provide these forms nor any information regarding an individual sorority's recommendation requirements. If an alumna is not familiar with her own sorority's regulations, she should contact the national sorority.
All entering first year students are required to have a 2.75 GPA from high school in order to participate in sorority recruitment. Students with at least one semester of college credit must meet a 2.5 cumulative college GPA requirement. ONE copy of your high school or college transcript is required prior to the beginning of recruitment. Students must also be enrolled in nine credit hours at UNT for the fall semester.
Please mail ONE copy of your transcript to the mailing address below or deliver directly to the Office of Greek Life, University Union, 4th Level, Room 422.
