On March 3rd sorority women, both collegiate and alumnae, will gather at the Today Show for the 5th year in celebration of International Badge Day. In years past women from NYU, Columbia and even chapters outside the New York area have participated in this event. Show your sorority pride with some good ol’ fashion poster board and glitter. Prepare to tell the world how much you love being a member of your sorority and NPC with an awesome sound bite. Bring your fellow chapter sisters and friends from other NPC sororities. And if you can’t make it to the Today Show Wear Your Letters On Your Heart in the office, school, grocery store, gym, everywhere!
And please send any photos of you and your sisters celebrating International Badge Day to firstname.lastname@example.org and email@example.com.
New York City Alumnae Panhellenic strives to not only promote the principles of the National Panhellenic Conference within its alumnae members, but also its collegiate members. In support of our collegiate members we established the New York City Alumnae Panhellenic Scholarship. This award is given annually to one outstanding Panhellenic collegiate woman, currently enrolled in a school within the five boroughs of New York City who exemplifies the standards of a Panhellenic woman—those being good scholarship, good character, and good citizenship.
Last year’s winner was Vienna Messina, a sister of Alpha Omicron Pi at Columbia University. Vienna is majoring in Spanish and Latin American Cultures with a minor in Political Science. She carries a high GPA and has held a number of leadership positions within her chapter and in other organizations at Columbia University. Vienna is “very serious and passionate” about her membership in Alpha Omicron Pi and does not take it for granted, especially after working many hours at a law firm and babysitting to pay off her dues.
If you know a woman who embodies the ideas listed above, which are exemplified by last year’s winner, or believe you are such a woman please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org with the subject line NYCAP SCHOLARSHIP to receive an application. The scholarship entry period closes on March 28, 2014. The winner will be notified in May.

For the past 6 years I’ve read over the New York City Panhellenic Awards applications and each year they get more and more exhausting. I don’t know how any of our chapters do what they do. The amount & style of alumnae programming, going far beyond a simple happy hour; or outreach to collegiate chapters from Manhattan to Ithaca to New Brunswick; or hosting charity galas at a Guest of a Guest feature level is simply amazing. I don’t know how the voting delegation chooses because it’s getting more and more competitive every year as our chapters grow and improve. Congratulations to this years winners who were chosen from a pack of fantastic alumnae chapters.

Come mix and mingle at the First Annual Panhellenic Celebration on Sunday, November 17th, from 12:00pm-2:00pm in the James Room, at Barnard Hall (4th Floor), Barnard College. This event is a celebration of the Panhellenic Community here at Columbia University and in the greater NYC area. All proceeds from the event will go the Panhellenic Scholarship Fund which aims to help women interested in joining the Greek Community, but struggle with the financial obligations, find a home in Columbia’s Panhellenic Organizations. The event will include brunch, a student performance by Columbia’s very own Metrotones, and a speech from New York City Alumnae Panhellenic President Jillian Gray. This is a great opportunity to stay involved in the community, meet current sisters in Columbia’s Panhellenic Organizations, mingle with fellow alumnae from Panhellenic Organizations represented in the area and raise money to support future Panhellenic women. Tickets are $10 for alumnae and can be purchased in advance here or at the door.
