Part of the Auburn Panhellenic Code of Ethics reads "As members of the Panhellenic Council, we stand for academic excellence, social responsibility, leadership, and service to our college campus and community."
While events such as Recruitment, Greek Sing, and Miss Panhellenic are certainly fun and entertaining, we cannot forget the social responsibility and service aspect of Panhellenic.
In 2018, we gave a total of $54,329 to our local community. Greek Sing raised $37,000 and Panhellenic was ¼ of a sponsor for Habitat for Humanity’s 66th home! $17,329 was donated to the following charities:
Boys & Girls Club: A national organization of local chapters which provide after school programs for young people.
Campus Food Pantry: The goal of this campus organization is to provide non perishable food items to aid Auburn students struggling with food insecurity.
Big House Foundation: Big House Programs provide much needed support and valuable resources for local foster and adoptive families.
Haddie’s Home: The mission of Haddie's Home is to provide a Christ-centered home environment of trust and hope where girls in crisis have an opportunity to see God fulfill His purpose for their lives.
Footprints Ministry: "Walking in God's grace and sharing His love with families in the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit."
Panhellenic Cabinet and REB applications are LIVE! Any Panhellenic member is eligible to apply and I strongly encourage you to do so.
All Panhellenic Cabinet members, which includes the Recruitment Executive Board, must be available to serve in the spring and fall terms of the calendar year for which they are appointed. Some positions are required to serve in the summer as well.
Panhellenic Council meetings are every other Tuesday at 5:00 pm. Panhellenic Cabinet will meet as a small group at 5:00 pm on the Tuesdays that Panhellenic Council does not meet as a whole. Each cabinet member is allowed one unexcused absence annually. Cabinet members who have more than one unexcused absence will be subject to dismissal. All members of cabinet are expected to perform the duties outlined in their specific position as well as helping other cabinet members with their duties. Each week, all cabinet members are expected to perform one hour of office work in the Greek Life office.
With around 20 Cabinet positions and 8 REB positions, there is a good fit for everyone. Click here for descriptions of each position!
Positions on Cabinet and REB are great ways to serve the Greek community while also positively representing your sorority. Personally, serving on Cabinet this past year has given me a better understanding and appreciation for all the projects and initiatives that Panhellenic and all of Greek Life host throughout the year. I have made friends in other sororities, as well as in IFC and NPHC. Additionally, I am proud to say that I devoted part of my time here at Auburn to making a positive impact on Panhellenic and Greek Life as a whole.
Applications close Friday, November 2nd at noon so don't wait... click here to apply and don't forget to sign up for an interview time as well! Contact Administrative Vice President Lauren Spiwak if you have any questions.
The 2018 Director of Scholarship is MB Smith!
Majors: English Literature and Economics with minors in Spanish and Philosophy
An interesting fact about her is that MB lived in South Korea at age 3! Outside of Panhellenic, she is the Assistant Vice President of Academic Affairs for SGA, VP of Membership for Cardinal Key, a writing consultant at Miller Writing Center, and a member of ODK. Lastly, one item on MB's Auburn bucket list is to participate in the Ring Ceremony!

DG's annual philanthropy event, Anchor Splash was held on Sunday.
Anchor Splash is a swimming competition. Organizations across Auburn’s campus create teams and members of DG coach them through the process. The contest consists of swimming events such as the Best Belly Flop competition, relay race, and the beloved Synchronized swimming competition where the teams perform hilarious synchronized routines.
Spectators could buy a wristband for $5 to watch these events, as well as t-shirts, which are still being sold for $15 through this link:
This event supports DG's philanthropy Service for Sight, which helps the blind and visually impaired. Delta Gamma chapters across the country fund 5 schools for the blind for visually impaired children. They also help wounded military personnel because 20% of injuries from combat cause visual impairments.
The ladies of Delta Gamma raised $17,655.64 and donated the money to the Delta Gamma Foundation. The Foundation then gives part of the money to the funding of the 5 schools, and some of the money to programs such as Wounded Warrior Project and other organizations that support their mission of helping visually impaired veterans.
The spotlight of the week is our Director of Spiritual Life, Madison Wright!
Major: Microbiology with a concentration in Pre-PA. I'm also minoring in French.
Hometown: Mobile, AL
Panhellenic position: Director of Spiritual Life- In this position, I give the devotion and pray at the start of each Panhellenic Council meeting. I also keep my page of the Panhellenic blog up to date and communicate any relevant information to the Panhellenic community.
I'm also involved in Auburn Community Church! It's such a great community and I just feel so welcomed anytime I walk through the doors. Also, I've met so many incredible other Panhellenic women through the services and the community groups!
