College Panhellenic Council
The KSU College Panhellenic Council has four pillars that our sisterhood is based
upon: scholarship, leadership, community, and service. No matter which chapter you
come to call home, your college years will be enriched by these four tenants.
Each year, the members of this council hold prominent positions on campus, excel scholastically and serve the Kennesaw community as a whole. At Kennesaw State University, the KSU Panhellenic Council serves as the governing body over the seven Panhellenic sororities: Alpha Omicron Pi, Alpha Xi Delta, Delta Phi Epsilon, Gamma Phi Beta, Kappa Delta, Phi Mu, and Zeta Tau Alpha. The KSU Panhellenic Council is operated by executive officers and delegates representing all sororities, and is focused on promoting the interests of social sororities and the Greek community as a whole at KSU.
The Panhellenic Creed
We, as Undergraduate Members of women’s fraternities, stand for good scholarship, for guarding of good health, for 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.

VP of Recruitment - Annie Pierson
The College Panhellenic Council is hard at work preparing for formal recruitment for Fall 2019. During recruitment every potential new member will have the opportunity to meet women from each of our chapters and learn how they can enhance your collegiate experience. If at any point you have questions, please ask!
What is a Recruitment Counselor?
The recruitment process is filled with many new opportunities and experiences, and along with these opportunities come challenges. Rest assured these questions do not have to be met alone! Your recruitment experience will begin when you are introduced to your Recruitment Counselor, also known as a Pi Chi. Your Pi Chi will help guide and support you throughout the recruitment week.
Our Pi Chis represent the 7 current Panhellenic chapters on KSU’s campus. The most important thing Pi Chis want you to know is that they are a member of the Panhellenic community, and they will be able to answer any questions you may have about the Recruitment process, Kennesaw State University, and our Panhellenic Community as a whole. The Pi Chi’s sorority affiliation is a secret. So don’t spoil the fun by trying to find out which sorority they belong to before the time has arrived! Our Pi Chis are very excited to meet you and help you find a chapter that compliments your values!
If I go through recruitment am I obligated to join?
No, many women choose to go through recruitment to meet people and make new friends. Recruitment is an opportunity for you to meet sororities and decide if you’d like to join the Greek Community.
Can upperclassmen go through recruitment?
Yes, any currently enrolled KSU student can go through recruitment.
What should I talk about during events?
It is important to be yourself. Let your conversations glow naturally and don’t be afraid to ask questions.
What if I have trouble choosing a sorority?
Difficult decisions are common, but do not look at this as a problem. Think about what each organization has to offer you. Think about where you felt the most comfortable and follow your intuition.
What is a bid?
A bid is an invitation to join a National Panhellenic Conference sorority. Bids are extended the last days of recruitment and you can only receive one.
What are the requirements for membership?
A Potential New Member (PNM) must be a currently enrolled KSU student. Note that each chapter may have a minimum GPA requirement. All PNMs must be registered and have paid the registration fee by the due date in order to join.
Is there a minimum GPA requirement to receive a bid?
The minimum GPA to be a part of a Panhellenic Sorority is a 2.5; however, having this GPA does not guarantee membership. For many of our organizations, a new member must have a GPA that is at least equivalent to their organization’s average GPA that is listed in the community grade report under the “About Us – Academics” section of the website. Due to this number constantly changing, other than publishing the minimum GPA for each council, the Department is unable to confirm the actual GPA needed to receive an invitation for membership into an individual organization.
If you are concerned that your GPA might limit your eligibility, please do not hesitate to contact our office, at firstname.lastname@example.org.
