The Panhellenic Council is a self-governing body representing the sororities at Montana State University. PHC strives to promote excellence in all aspects of sorority life and academic pursuits and works together to help the entire system better achieve its common goal of membership development and service to the sorority community. The Council works to achieve these goals through its committee structure focusing on an array of areas including chapter development, scholarship, community service, member education, and alumni and public relations.
We, as Undergraduate Members of women's fraternities, stand for good scholarship, for guarding of good health, for maintenance of fine standards, and for serving, to the best of our ability, our college community. Cooperation for furthering fraternity life, in harmony with its best possibilities, is the ideal that shall guide our fraternity activities.
We, as Fraternity Women, stand for service through the development of character inspired by the close contact and deep friendship of individual fraternity and Panhellenic life. The opportunity for wide and wise human service, through mutual respect and helpfulness, is the tenet by which we strive to live.
Circle of Sisterhood
Panhellenic Council has adopted the Circle of Sisterhood as their official philanthropy so that we may play 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. To learn more about the passion behind this movement, please visit the Circle of Sisterhood website.
Meetings occur biweekly.

The Montana State Panhellenic Council has been recognized for a third time with the
Excellence Award from the National Panhellenic Conference. The council has received
the Excellence Award for 2016, 2017, and 2018.
“The College Panhellenic Associations being recognized have excelled in all areas of Panhellenic operations and met the core competencies of reporting and communication,” said Frances Mitchelson, NPC Panhellenic chairman. “We are proud of their hard work and dedication to upholding high standards for their College Panhellenic and ensuring the sorority experience is beneficial for all members on their campus.”
College Panhellenic Associations are cooperatives comprised of all NPC member sororities on a campus. They are scored on seven criteria of value to all campuses. The 25 Excellence Award recipients met all seven criteria. The 18 Achievement Award recipients met five or six criteria.
The seven criteria are:
- Communication with NPC area advisor
- Judicial procedures
- Panhellenic community impact and relations
- Panhellenic programming
- Panhellenic structure
2023 College Panhellenic Academy
In January of 2023 our President, VP of Public Relations, VP of Recruitment, and Assistant Recruitment Officer traveled to Indianapolis for the National Panhellenic Academy. Each officer completed an educational track specific to their position. We were able to learn so much from the session leaders, guest speakers, and our Panhellenic sisters from across the country. Our officers left NPC academy with lots of ideas on how to improve FSL at Montana State and the tools to make it happen!
