Sorority Life

A Letter From Our President

Prospective Members & Guests,

Welcome Home.

Whether you are looking into joining one of our Greek organizations, a current Greek life member, or simply wanting to learn more about the different types of involvement at the University of Maine, again- welcome home.

Going Greek is unlike any other life experience you will ever have, in the sense that it gives you the opportunity to form lifelong bonds with people just like you; people who are looking for a place to call home, while simultaneously growing into the person they strive to be.

The Panhellenic community assists on the path to this ultimate end goal by helping to develop each individual member’s valuable leadership skills, the pursuit of academic excellence, and drive to serve in their local and global community. Through all of these experiences, our many brotherhoods and sisterhoods form bonds that are eradicable.

One of the biggest initiatives of the Panhellenic Council is to develop leaders that are not only successful and confident throughout their college careers, but throughout the rest of their lives as well. Greek organizations foster this growth by offering members countless opportunities to learn the skills necessary to become influential leaders within their individual chapters, the Greek community, and other student organizations they are part of.

The value of service is a bond that all University of Maine sorority women share. Each sorority on our campus has its own philanthropy they support throughout the year, in addition to logging numerous community service hours every semester. If you are looking to give back to your local or global community, I assure you that you are in the right place. University of Maine Greek women are dedicated in both heart and mind to giving back to the world that surrounds them and leaving a positive mark.

Everyone enters their college years at different places in their personal lives. Some are anxious to leap into the next chapter of their life, while others may be slightly warier of the changes to come. Immersing yourself in an organization such as Greek Life can inspire your path through college, and remind you that the most impassioned and inspiring things are possible when we stand hand and hand, and combine our forces.

I am personally honored to call myself a member of the Panhellenic community. These women exemplify the kind of character, scholarship, and dedication to service that inspires me daily to grow as a citizen of the world. The group of people you associate with says a lot about your character. In my opinion, we’re on the right track.
