Circle of Sisterhood

Panhellenic Council has adopted The Circle of Sisterhood as their official philanthropy, so that we may become a part in making education a reality for girls and women around the world. As organizations which were originally founded in the 19th century because of the obstacles to women achieving a college education, the sororities at Montana State University truly believe in this cause. We will work with The Circle of Sisterhood to  raise financial resources for entities around the world that are removing educational barriers for girls and women facing poverty and oppression.
