Each of our fraternities and sororities strives to uphold the five pillars of Greek Life at PC: leadership, scholarship, service, community, and social responsibility.
Five Pillars of Greek Life
Fraternity and sorority members are offered a variety of leadership opportunities and programs in which they can develop skills like time management, event planning, and communication. Members hold many leadership positions within their chapters or in major student organizations on campus.
The most important aspect of fraternity and sorority membership is scholarship. In order to challenge their members to excel academically, each fraternity and sorority has established educational programming. To be initiated as a member, you must obtain grade requirements, which vary between each sorority and fraternity. However, the minimum grade point average for any fraternity is a 2.0.
PC’s sororities and fraternities strive to embody our motto: “While We Live, We Serve”. Each organization completes service projects benefiting a variety of charities, including Ronald McDonald House Charities, Laurens County Hospice Center, and the USO. The Interfraternity Council’s philanthropic cause is the Bindy’s Buddy Walk. The Panhellenic Council’s philanthropic cause is the Circle of Sisterhood Foundation.
Joining a fraternity or sorority means becoming part of a family. Brothers and Sisters provide a “home away from home” for PC students that offers support and guidance.
Through a variety of events, there are opportunities to meet and interact with members of fraternities and sororities and other campus organizations. Some of the ways to balance scholarship with fun are social events with other chapters, formal dinner dances, Greek Week, and intramural sporting events.
