MEET THE PRESIDENT
On behalf of the 9 sororities in Panhellenic and over 1,000 female-identifying members, welcome to the UC Santa Barbara Panhellenic Website! I hope that through this website you can gain a better understanding of what our Panhellenic Community does and learn about what Fraternity & Sorority life is like here at UC Santa Barbara.
As a Panhellenic Council, we aim to foster a community of welcoming, intelligent, and compassionate young women and help them to make the most of their time here at UC Santa Barbara. Being in a sorority here means always striving to uphold the four pillars of fraternity & sorority life: scholarship, leadership, service, and friendship. UC Santa Barbara Panhellenic offers a supportive environment that empowers those to grow as individuals and as members of a greater community. We feel passionately about building young leaders and providing countless opportunities to succeed as a student here.
Through this site, you can learn a little bit about each of our chapters, visit their various social media platforms, and gain some insight into what life is like in Panhellenic. You can also find information about our executive board, recruitment, and our statement of inclusion. Contact information is also provided for all executive board members and individual chapters.
I decided to participate in formal recruitment my first year because I wanted to surround myself with a community of women that inspired me to be a better version of myself each and every day. I hoped to gain valuable leadership experience, find mentorship in alumni and older members, build meaningful relationships, and make a change where change needed to be made. Throughout my three years here, I can genuinely say I’ve found all of that and so much more. I came into college feeling incredibly unsure of myself and where I would fit in, and am coming out with a much more critical understanding of who I am at my core.
Joining Greek Life has been a huge part of that self-exploration and I’m excited to see how these experiences will help me continue that journey as I go out into the world. I owe so much of my success as a leader, in my career, and in my relationships to Greek Life. I’ve found so much love in the Panhellenic space and encourage anyone interested going through the process to act on that curiosity! I promise to be an open heart to anyone in this community and encourage you to explore all the wonderful aspects of UC Santa Barbara Panhellenic.
I’m so excited for the year to come and hope you consider joining us in our community. Regardless, every student at UC Santa Barbara holds a special place in my heart and this community will support you in any outside endeavors you choose as well. Please feel free to reach out to me at any time – I look forward to meeting you! :)
