Student Life

National Panhellenic Council

National Pan-Hellenic Council Logo The National Panhellenic Council is the governing body for 5 fraternities out of 9 Greek letter organizations.

Our Mission

"Unanimity of thought and action as far as possible in the conduct of Greek letter collegiate fraternities and sororities, and to consider problems of mutual interest to its member organizations."

Our Purpose

NPHC promotes interaction through forums, meetings and other mediums for the exchange of information and engages in cooperative programming and initiatives through various activities and functions.

Who We Are

The Columbus State University NPHC hosts weekly meetings. Each member organization sends two delegates to the meetings, and these students serve as the representative voice of their chapters on all action items.

NPHC fraternities will typically hold at least one interest meeting each semester. Interested members are encouraged to research each fraternity's specific membership requirements and attend interest meetings. Interest meetings are advertised via fliers, and on CSUinvolve.

How to Join an NPHC Fraternity or Sorority

Each NPHC fraternity and sorority brings in new members at various times of the year through a process called Membership Intake. All organizations governed by the National Pan- Hellenic Council have different requirements for membership. These organizations are permitted to conduct intake based on the chapters schedule and/ or their need for expansion. Some organizations conduct intake each semester; others do so only once a year. When organizations are looking to conduct Membership Intake, many of them will host an informational meeting in which the criteria for membership is explained. These are usually publicized via flyers on campus. NPHC will host a general information session about all of its organizations for students who have questions or are unsure about the intake process. This event is called "Nine Torches of Wisdom" and is held in the fall semester.

Requirements to Join an NPHC Organization

Typically, a student must obtain a collegiate GPA of 2.5 or higher, community service experience, and involvement in clubs or community activities. Nevertheless, each NPHC organization has its own requirements set by their (inter)national organization and the CSU chapter. Please contact the CSU chapter that you are interested in for more information.
