Panhellenic Sororities

Our Chapters

Carleton University is home to two Panhellenic sororities: Alpha Omicron Pi and Delta Phi Epsilon. There are countless benefits to that come with joining a well-established organization like a Panhellenic sorority. The main advantages are making meaningful connections with a sisterhood, opportunities to do acts of service in the community, a commitment to academic excellence and scholarship, and gaining leadership skills.

Sisterhood

First, by joining a Panhellenic sorority, you are not only gaining sisters from your own chapter, but are forming connections with members from other organizations. There are Panhellenic sororities on campuses all across Canada and the United States consisting of thousands of members.
"No matter the letters, sisterhood forever"

Service
