National Badge Day
Each year in the first week of March, college Panhellenics across the country and in Canada honor the badges of each of the 26 NPC Chapters with the National Badge Day Celebration. Here at UNCW, Panhellenic hosts a program in which a speaker is asked to highlight the importance of the values within the Panhellenic community. Although we all wear different badges with different Greek letters and symbols, we are united as one Panhellenic and utilize this day to remember the importance of the letters we wear over our hearts.
The Stereotype Series
Many times, Fraternities and Sororities are portrayed negatively. The Panhellenic Council at UNCW is a proactive community and is constantly having 'real talk' to address the issues and taboos often associated with Greek Life. Each semester, our women will meet to discuss hot topics, how this impacts Greek life as a whole, and at UNCW, and how we can work to live up to our values.
This program was put in place to promote sisterhood between the 8 chapters here on campus. Sister sororities are encouraged to plan sisterhood events with each other such as dinners together at local restaurants, movies at Mayfaire, as well as philanthropy events. Chapter members show their love for their sister sorority by bringing fun treats to the suite, chalking up and down Chancellor's Walk or painting the spirit rocks. Sororities receive points based on what type of event was held and at the end of the semester the sorority with the most points wins the coveted Sister Sorority of the Semester Award!
