Panhellenic Association

Panhellenic Association is the unifying, governing and coordinating organization of the women's fraternities within DePauw's community associated with the National Panhellenic Conference.

Panhellenic Association (PHA) consists of representatives from each of the women’s fraternities at DePauw as well as an Executive Board, consisting of the officers elected by the DePauw's Panhellenic chapters. The Panhellenic Association (PHA) is the governing council for the six international women’s fraternities at DePauw:

  • Alpha Chi Omega
  • Alpha Phi
  • Delta Gamma
  • Kappa Alpha Theta
  • Kappa Kappa Gamma
  • Pi Beta Phi

Panhellenic Association provides a communication link between sororities, campus organizations and community leaders. Our programming seeks to encourage personal and chapter enrichment in many different areas such as philanthropy, scholarship, women's issues and overall Greek unity. In addition to all of these opportunities, Panhellenic Association organizes the Panhellenic Formal Recruitment process, which is the membership selection process for Panhellenic organizations.

If you are interested in joining a Panhellenic organization, we encourage you to attend events such as: Rho Gamma meetings, Panhellenic Open House and Recruitment 101. The minimum cumulative GPA needed to not only participate in Recruitment but to receive a bid from a Panhellenic organization is 2.5. Additional questions about the Panhellenic recruitment process can be directed to the Campus Living and Community Development office by e-mailing glc@depauw.edu or by e-mailing panhellenic@depauw.edu.

Recommendation Forms

Although the Panhellenic Association organizes and facilitates the Formal Recruitment process each spring semester, we do not collect recommendation forms. Recommendations forms (for women who have relatives or any alumnae who are members of one of the chapters here at DePauw) are organized through each organization's Inter/National Headquarters and collected by the individual chapters. If you have questions about where to send recommendation forms, please refer to your Inter/National organization's webpage, as they will direct you to specific mailing addresses. Recommendations are not mandatory for DePauw's Panhellenic Formal Recruitment.
