Lynn University and the National Panhellenic Conference (NPC) officially welcomed the university’s chartered College Panhellenic Association (CPH) March 19. The CPH serves as the governing body for the two NPC sororities on Lynn’s campus: Sigma Sigma Sigma and Theta Phi Alpha, which chartered at Lynn in 1998 and 2015, respectively.
The CPH installation results from recent campus Greek life expansion and brings the Lynn sorority community in complete partnership with one of the oldest and largest women’s membership organizations. NPC, founded in 1902, represents over 4 million women across 655 colleges and universities. It oversees the operations of approximately 3,200 collegiate chapters and 4,500 alumnae chapters across the U.S.A. and Canada.
“This charter demonstrates significant commitment to better not only the sorority community, but to our campus as a whole,” says Jawaun Rogers, Lynn coordinator of student involvement. “It is an honor, and with it comes great duty: Do not let the organization rest on its laurels and assume it will succeed based on past success. This is the beginning, and we’re certain you will rise to the occasion.”
In addition to upholding traditional college values including academics, programming and community relations, the CPH’s main purpose is to maintain and further develop fraternity life and to foster relationships among all fraternity men and women. It does this through leadership, scholarship, friendship, service and the empowerment of women on campus.
