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.
