College of Charleston
A Letter from our President
Welcome to the official website of the College of Charleston Panhellenic Council! My name is Maddie Smith, and I have the honor of serving as Panhellenic President. We are ecstatic that you are interested in learning more about our incredible community, and the chapters that comprise what it means to be a Panhellenic woman.
Our Panhellenic community is made up of over 1,000 women, all dedicated to serving their community, striving for academic excellence, and being leaders on our beautiful campus. Our individual chapters; Alpha Delta Pi, Chi Omega, Delta Delta Delta, Delta Gamma, Kappa Alpha Theta, Kappa Delta, Sigma Kappa, and Zeta Tau Alpha, are what create this welcoming, inspiring community that we are so proud to have on campus.
Our chapters, individually diverse and unique, all strive to promote similar achievement as an organization. The foundation of all of our chapters lies in encouraging the highest academic achievement, promoting community service, campus involvement, sisterhood, and social engagement. Every chapter provides opportunity for personal growth, leadership, and involvement on our campus and the greater Charleston area.
It feels like just yesterday I was going through primary recruitment myself, and I remember all of the questions running through my head. What sorority life would be like, where I would fit in, and where I would find my home seemed like an overwhelming thought at the time. I can wholeheartedly reassure you, that the moment you step into this community, you will feel nothing but support, love, and belonging. Having the opportunity to find your home away from home, your support system, and friends that will last a lifetime is something that cannot be put into words. I can confidently say that I would not be the person I am today without this community, and without the connections I have found with Panhellenic women who are unique, driven, and strive to be their best self every single day.
Having the opportunity to lead this community has only proven everything I have known about the Panhellenic community to be true. Each and every member is passionate, dedicated, and has been influential to our campus community. We could not be more excited for you all to begin your unique experience within the Panhellenic community, and find the organization that will become your second home.
