PILLARS OF THE SORORITY COMMUNITY

Scholarship

The Panhellenic Community takes great pride in their scholastic         achievements. Beginning as a new member, all the way to graduation, sororities' members encourage, develop, and maintain academic progress. Throughout the Fraternity and Sorority community, many scholarship opportunities are available for women to encourage high achievements. Last year at IWU, approximately 51% of sorority women were on the Dean’s list (over a 3.50 GPA). In addition, the All Panhellenic Sorority GPA was above the non-sorority GPA for both the fall and spring semesters!

Leadership

One of the top priorities of our sorority community is to offer members a variety of positions to sharpen their leadership skills. Sororities provide a solid foundation in leadership training and networking that prepares members for the demands and responsibilities needed in their future careers. At IWU sorority members not only hold high positions within their chapters, but throughout the campus as well. One-third of the female undergraduate students at IWU are members of a CPH sorority.

Service

Each chapter gives back to the community through philanthropic work and donating time at local organizations. Giving back to the community is one of the most gratifying parts of being in a sorority. Each year, all four sororities also unite to work together for one charity or organization, as well as spend time sprucing up our own campus.

Sisterhood

Regardless of the chapter you join, the friendships you make are life-long. Sisterhood activities are an integral part of each chapter that helps its members to unite with one another and share a bond that is indescribable. All sorority women also gather together to have united sisterhood activities including progressive dinners, round-table discussions, and service projects.
