News from BGSU's Fraternity and Sorority Community
On November 21, 600 women from BGSU's Panhellenic Council came together for a day-long event entitled Defining Your Panhellenic Experience. This event explored their commitment and experiences concerning membership registered sororities. The women attended two break-out sessions which focused on the struggles they encounter as sorority women, both inside and outside of the community. The sessions also afforded the women time to brainstorm strategies for confronting these issues in their daily lives.
Afterwards, the women listened to a keynote presentation by the Chairwoman of the National Panhellenic Conference, Eve Woods Riley. Eve discussed the importance of living in congruence with the Panhellenic Creed and how one’s actions reflect others. The women then returned to their chapters and discussed ideas for making a difference in their experiences and developed solutions to ensure the continued success of the BGSU fraternity and sorority community.
Defining Your Panhellenic Experience was successful because of the hard work and dedication by the 2010 Panhellenic Council Executive Board, graduate and professional staff advisors, and participants. In February 2011, a number of sorority women will attend the Association for Fraternal Leadership and Values Conference (the event where the vision for this program emerged in 2010) and will return with more ideas that propel the community forward.
