Panhellenic Association wins award for campaign

The NKU Panhellenic Association received the Gamma Phi Beta Programming Award at the annual Southeastern Panhellenic Conference in Atlanta, Ga., March 27 for their “Sisters Wanted Campaign.”

With over 1,300 conference participants, Panhellenic also received a grant for $250 for their campaign.

“The goals of the program were to combat stereotypes about Greek life, promote [the] campus image of Greek life and to increase campus visibility of Greek life,” according to Tiffany Bellafant, assistant director of Student Life. To accomplish these goals, Panhellenic posted fliers with Greek life statistics, hosted the annual “Color Me Greek Party” and participated in Freshfusion in hopes of providing more information about sororities.

Panhellenic sorority sisters also had T-shirts made that advertised the “Sisters Wanted” campaign and welcomed residence hall students with balloons, cards and door hangers.

Panhellenic concluded the campaign with Safety Week, which the Residence Hall Association co-sponsored.
