Panhellenic Council (PHC)

About the Panhellenic Council
The University of Pennsylvania Panhellenic Council is comprised of 8 women's fraternities* and sororities.
*It's important to note that some Panhellenic organizations which use the name 'fraternity' are still women's organizations. In many cases, this is because the term 'sorority' was not invented until 1874.
  • Each member organization of the Panhellenic Council at Penn is part of the National Panhellenic Conference (NPC), which comprises 26 inter/national women's fraternities and sororities.
