Birmingham-Southern Panhellenic Council wins highest award for excellence

BIRMINGHAM, Ala.—The governing body of Birmingham-Southern College's seven national sororities has been named the nation's best by the National Panhellenic Council.

BSC's Panhellenic Council will be presented with that group's Panhellenic Conference Overall Excellence Award during ceremonies in October in Palm Springs, Calif. The National Panhellenic Council is the national coordinating body for college and university panhellenic organizations.

Birmingham-Southern's Panhellenic Council was selected for the award from among all other colleges and universities in the U.S. having six to 10 national sororities on campus.

The award recognizes college panhellenics for achievements and programs that best develop fraternity loyalties and friendships, confidence in one another, and mutual respect and helpfulness, as well as philanthropic involvement, educational programming, recruitment procedures, and the ability to foster positive panhellenic relationships with the campus community.

The BSC Panhellenic Council sponsors several educational and social activities for campus members each year including Fall Rush, the Halloween on the Hilltop carnival, and a Faculty Appreciation Luncheon. The council also sponsors campus speakers annually to discuss topics such as alcohol awareness and eating disorders.

The National Panhellenic Council is made up of 26 national sororities.
