a note from the vice president of recruitment
Hello! My name is Lauryn Praet and I serve as the Panhellenic Vice President of Recruitment at the University of Illinois. Our chapters, Panhellenic Council, and I are so excited that you have joined the University of Illinois family and are interested in Panhellenic sorority life! During your years at the University of Illinois you will have countless opportunities to create your own college experience. As you begin to make decisions about the right path for you, we encourage you to familiarize yourself with Greek life here at the University of Illinois.
Our Panhellenic community is composed of 19 National Panhellenic Conference organizations and 4 Associate organizations that are filled with exceptional women who are involved in a variety of different capacities across campus and the Urbana-Champaign community. Our Panhellenic community continues to be proud of our chapters that have empowering sisterhoods, encourage their members to strive for excellence and enrich their college experiences through sisterhood, philanthropy, scholarship, leadership, and diversity.
I realize that recruitment can seem daunting or incredibly exciting - honestly, it is both! I am here to assure you that joining a chapter makes this extremely large university a lot smaller, and can become a great support system for you throughout your college career. Getting involved makes all the difference, and joining a chapter is the best way to find a home away from home! It has truly been one of the most rewarding experiences of my life to be a part of the Panhellenic community. Our community is made up of so many diverse girls from different backgrounds, and it is these individual differences, and chapter differences, that make us stronger as a whole.
Thank you for your interest in participating in Panhellenic recruitment, and we hope that through this experience, you will learn more about your own personal values, and how membership in a Panhellenic sorority can further develop you into a stronger woman throughout college and beyond. We look forward to seeing you this fall!
