Spring Hill College utilizes a deferred recruitment process. This means that freshman cannot join fraternities or sororities until the spring semester. This helps to give time for students to acclimate to campus and get a better perspective of what it means to be a fraternity/sorority member at SHC.
 
Recruitment for Panhellenic chapters is a mutual selection process. You are choosing the organization, just as much as they are selecting you. The Panhellenic Association hosts formal membership recruitment each spring semester. During this process potential new members have the opportunity to visit each NPC member chapter and learn a little bit about the values of that organization as well as the women who are members. The formal recruitment process for spring 2017 will be determined soon. Check back here for updates!
 
Organizations also may hold informal recruitment for upperclassmen in the fall semester. There is no guarantee that a chapter will offer invitations to membership in the fall, but it does occur.

The National Pan-Hellenic Council, Incorporated (NPHC) is currently composed of nine (9) International Greek letter Sororities and Fraternities: Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority, Inc. Alpha Phi Alpha Fraternity, Inc., Delta Sigma Theta Sorority, Inc., Zeta Phi Beta Sorority, Inc., Iota Phi Theta Fraternity, Inc., Kappa Alpha Psi Fraternity, Inc., Sigma Gamma Rho Sorority, Inc. Phi Beta Sigma Fraternity, Inc. and Omega Psi Phi Fraternity, Inc. NPHC promotes interaction through forums, meetings and other mediums for the exchange of information and engages in cooperative programming and initiatives through various activities and functions.

On May 10, 1930, on the campus of Howard University, in Washington DC, the National Pan-Hellenic Council was formed as a permanent organization with the following charter members: Omega Psi Phi and Kappa Alpha Psi Fraternities, and Alpha Kappa Alpha, Delta Sigma Theta and Zeta Phi Beta Sororities. In 1931, Alpha Phi Alpha and Phi Beta Sigma Fraternities joined the Council. Sigma Gamma Rho Sorority joined in 1937 and Iota Phi Theta Fraternity completed the list of member organizations in 1997.

The stated purpose and mission of the organization in 1930 was “Unanimity of thought and action as far as possible in the conduct of Greek letter collegiate fraternities and sororities, and to consider problems of mutual interest to its member organizations.” Early in 1937, the organization was incorporated under the laws of the State of Illinois and became known as “The National Pan-Hellenic Council, Incorporated.”

Intake is the process by which NPHC organizations bring in new members. The timeline for this process is determined by each NPHC chapter individually in line with campus and National policies. Flyers for the start of an organizations intake process are posted on campus if you are interested in joining. We also recommend communicating with each organization as far as how their individual process works.

Circle of Sisterhood was adopted in April 2011 as Spring Hill College Panhellenic Association's official philanthropy.

 
A message from the Circle of Sisterhood Foundation:
The American sorority movement was born in the 1800s as an avenue of support for women who were fighting for the right to attend college and earn an education. United as one, the founders of our fraternal organizations paved the way for countless women who would follow. 
 
Now, almost 150 years later, the network of sorority women—more than 5 million strong—is committed to following in our founders’ footsteps by raising awareness on global issues affecting girls and women. 
 
Education for women globally remains a privilege and not a right. Around the world, 70% of out- of-school youth are girls. We represent the less than 40% of the U.S. population with a college degree and the less than 7% of the educated global population.
 
Our sisters around the world will never have the opportunities we’ve had—and continue to have— unless we help.  Our founders stood together to give us these opportunities. Now it is our turn to stand together for our sisters around the world. 
 
Because numerous studies indicate education is the key to eradicating poverty, the Circle of Sisterhood Foundation will leverage the collective wisdom and influence of sorority women to provide financial support to entities that remove educational barriers for girls and women.  
 
All we ask is that you—as a sorority woman—give or raise $100 per year, and then ask every affiliated woman you know to do the same. For more information, or to donate, visit our website at circleofsisterhood.org.
  
Women will hold up half the sky. Chinese Proverb
 
One World. One Sisterhood. A humanitarian effort by sorority women.
