Welcome & Letter from the President

Welcome to Lafayette College’s Panhellenic Council website!

We are the governing body for the five sororities at Lafayette: Alpha Gamma Delta, Alpha Phi, Delta Gamma, Kappa Kappa Gamma, and Pi Beta Phi.  We ensure the guidelines and protocols from the National Panhellenic Council are met in each of our chapters, and are a resource for every member.

Our mission: The Panhellenic Council seeks to foster the creation of a community of committed, involved members who strive for growth, sisterhood, and the fulfillment of our ideal values. Our mission is to collaborate and communicate openly to create a foundation based on unity, trust, and integrity in the Lafayette Community.

Letter from the President, Caitlyn Dempsey:

Hello and welcome to the Panhellenic website! My name is Caitlyn Dempsey, and I am the Panhellenic Council President for the 2021 year. Our Panhellenic Community is comprised of five chapters, and each of these organizations contribute to our community in their own positive way. I am honored and humbled to be serving as the leader of Panhel this year.

The Panhellenic Council plays an instrumental role in upholding the values of the Lafayette community, such as leadership, friendship, kindness, empathy and service. As an entirely student led council, Panhellenic has the ability to induce positive change in the whole Greek system and advocate for non-affiliated members on campus.

After being on our council for a semester, I am excited to continue serving as president. Our council’s collective experience, as well as our strong work ethic and intense focus on diversity, equity and inclusion will make this year’s Panhellenic officers extremely special. We are determined to shift our focus on ensuring that we are assisting the community as a whole, not just those who are Greek afilliated. We hope to continue to prove our dedication to our cause to campus for as long as we are permitted to stay. 

If there is any feedback, cause for concern, or otherwise conversations that you or your group would like to have, you can always reach me at the email below. Our council believes in transparency, open conversations and active listening. We understand that it is our responsibility to ensure that Panhellenic is changing for the better all the time. For that reason, I encourage you to reach out! 

Welcome to Panhel, we hope to meet you soon!

Caitlyn Dempsey

Lafayette College Panhellenic Council President
