College Panhellenic Council celebrates International Badge Day

The College Panhellenic Council sororities at Lamar University are celebrating International Badge Day by encouraging all collegiate and alumni members of fraternities and sororities to wear their badges or Greek letters on March 3, and/or participate virtually by changing their profile pictures on their social media pages to their badge.

The College Panhellenic Council will celebrate on the Lamar campus at the Setzer Student Center Arbor from 11am-1pm on March 3.

International Badge Day was established in 1997 by the National Panhellenic Conference (NPC) to set aside a day for women everywhere to wear their sorority badges or Greek letters in a celebration of sisterhood.  This year’s theme is:  “Wear Your Letters on Your Heart.”  At Lamar University, national and international sororities and fraternities are also participating in celebration of sisterhood and brotherhood.

“International Badge Day is a great way to get the Greek community together on campus in celebration of our organizations and our founding values,” said Robyn Winkle, president of the College Panhellenic Council.  “Fellowship, leadership, academic achievement and a lifelong commitment to community service are the daily themes in the lives of fraternity and sorority members – from our collegians to alumni.”

LU College Panhellenic Council sororities are involved in several national causes such as Domestic Violence Awareness, Ronald McDonald House Charities, and Breast Cancer Education and Awareness.  They conduct hundreds of community service hours per semester and are proud to partner with local agencies in an effort to make our community a better place.  The College Panhellenic Council sororities have a collective grade point average of over a 3.0 and are leaders in many student organizations on campus.

NPC, one of the largest organizations advocating for women, is the umbrella group for 26 national and international sororities.  NPC sororities are located in nearly 670 campuses with 325,772 undergraduate members in 3,127 chapters.  Alumnae are represented in 3,883 associations throughout the world.  For more information, including a complete list of NPC sororities, visit www.npcwomen.org or find NPC on Twitter and Facebook.
