The University of Virginia’s College at Wise is home to three international/national sororities. These sororities are governed by the Panhellenic Council (PHC), made up of representatives from each sorority. The PHC sets recruitment dates and policies, plans Greek life events, and promotes Greek unity.
Sororities are self-governing organizations that offer significant opportunities for students to develop leadership skills. Members set policies and standards, serve in chapter leadership positions, manage budgets, chair committees, and plan community service and social events. Sororities are committed to academic success and often, chapters provide academic resources for their members, including planned study sessions and tutoring. In addition, sororities celebrate annual traditions, strengthen bonds of community and friendship, and are involved in numerous community service and philanthropic events.
