Go Greek UNT from UNT Panhellenic on Vimeo.

The University of North Texas Panhellenic Association currently represents the following sororities:

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 UNT Panhellenic Council recognizes organizations that are member organizations of the National Panhellenic Conference. 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.

Panhellenic Creed

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 - Membership Information

 

Spring 2015 Sorority Recruitment

The Spring Recruitment process is more informal than the Fall Recruitment process utilizing a process referred to as Continuous Open Bidding (COB).  Chapters will individually host events or invite you to get to know the chapter. These events are usually casual and provide a fun and relaxed environment where you will be able to get to know one another before potentially joining the organization.
If you are interested in being a part of Spring Recruitment CLICK HERE. This form will be made available to all of the sororities participating in COB and allows them to know more about you.

By notifying us of your interest in Spring 2015 informal recruitment, you are consenting to the Office of Greek Life verifying your grades to determine your eligibility to participate in COB. COB has the same GPA requirements as Fall formal recruitment. If you are a student who has transferred to UNT this Spring, you will need to provide a copy of your previous institution's transcript to the Office of Greek Life. 

It is important to know that not all chapters participate in Spring Recruitment. If you participate in Spring Recruitment and don't find a chapter you feel fits you, you can participate in Formal Recruitment in the Fall.
Meet the Greeks will be January 21st from 11am - 1pm in the Library Mall. Chapters will be giving information about their organizations and recruitment events. This will be a great opportunity to meet many of the chapters and learn about Greek Life at UNT.

 

Fall 2015 Formal Recruitment information will be available soon! 

*There will be a mandatory Orientation meeting for all women registered in the Auditorium Building.

All sororities participate in an early fall recruitment to be held at the beginning of the academic year.

Recruitment Recommendation Letters/Forms

Some sororities require what is known as a recommendation (”rec”) letter/form from an alumna member of that sorority before the sorority can offer her membership. A recommendation is a letter/form written on your behalf by a woman who has graduated and is a member of that particular sorority. She does not have to be an alumna of UNT, only a member of that particular sorority. A rec generally speaks of your character and highlights accomplishments, awards, and activities. It is beneficial to have someone that you know write recs for you because they are speaking on your behalf.  Some cities and towns have Panhellenic Alumnae organizations that coordinate recommendation letters for potential members.  While it is not required by the Office of Greek Life to obtain recommendations in order to go through recruitment it allows the chapters the opportunity to get to know you prior to formal recruitment. Recommendations can be sent to either the individual chapters or to the Office of Greek Life.

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.

Academic Requirements

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 Greek Life Center located at 621 S. Welch Street.
