La Salle Panhellenic Council hosts virtual Meet the Greeks


Rita Offutt, Editor

La Salle’s Panhellenic Council is the center of sorority life. All five social organizations are represented, and the different chapters come together to make decisions about Greek life at La Salle. All Greek organizations at La Salle participate in different philanthropic efforts, and the Panhellenic Council typically hosts an event each semester to promote the greater good. Previous events have included making dog toys for animal shelters and promoting body positivity. One of the most prominent issues the Panhellenic Council considers is recruitment, including formal recruitment weekend, which is held every spring, and the continuous-open-bid (COB) process. Alpha Sigma Tau, Alpha Theta Alpha, Delta Phi Epsilon, Gamma Phi Beta, and Phi Mu are all networking to recruit sophomore, junior and senior women as part of the COB process this fall, which is an informal opportunity to consider joining one of the chapters. In order to facilitate this process and familiarize the entire La Salle community with the five sororities, La Salle’s Panhellenic Council is hosting a Meet The Greeks event at 9 PM on October 6th. 

Jessica Nass, the president of the Panhellenic Council, believes, “Meet the Greeks will be a great way to get acquainted with all the incredible organizations La Salle has to offer. I strongly encourage anyone who is even considering Greek life to join us at the event and see what sorority life is all about.” The Meet the Greeks event will be hosted virtually.

Erin Sweigert, a sister of Gamma Phi Beta who serves as a delegate on the Panhellenic Council, said, “I went Greek because I wanted to be in a community who accepts me for who I truly am and I’m so thankful I did! I found my forever people!”
Erin Holly, another delegate and sister of Alpha Sigma Tau, said, “My favorite part about Greek life is all of the friendships I have made, not only with my sisters but sisters of other chapters at La Salle!”
