Auburn University has many traditions, and a strong Panhellenic Council is one of them.  The Auburn University Panhellenic Council is comprised of representatives from each of Auburn’s seventeen Panhellenic Sororities.  Due to the contributions of all its members, the council continues to be recognized for its excellence.

We hope that you are looking forward to attending Auburn University and participating in recruitment.  All  of our NPC sororities are outstanding and are committed to providing opportunities for their members to help them develop their greatest potential as students and as women.  Sororities today are far more than just social organizations; they facilitate growth and development of their members and contribute much to the community.  Use recruitment week to determine for yourself if you would like to become a part of the Panhellenic community at Auburn University.  Please know, however, that affiliation with a sorority is not a prerequisite for an active and successful college experience.  Joining a sorority, therefore, should be an individual decision, one which you make for yourself, not for your mother or your sister or best friend.  Whether you join a sorority or not, recruitment week will be a time for making new friends and beginning a new and exciting part of your life.  Recruitment is open to all women accepted to Auburn University or presently enrolled at Auburn University.

Auburn University Panhellenic recruitment is open to all enrolled Auburn University women regardless of race, religion, color, age, national origin, disability, or veteran status.
