I’m Madison Oakes, and I am the University of Lynchburg Panhellenic Council President.
The National Panhellenic Conference is an umbrella organization for all 26 national women’s sororities. As Panhellenic President, I work with a council of outstanding leaders from the four sororities on campus. As a council we strive to strengthen the bonds between our Greek organizations as well as the rest of the Lynchburg Community. As Panhellenic leaders we have been given the opportunity to work with not only Greek organizations but also the various other organizations on campus.
When I first came to college, I knew that I wanted to go Greek. All the women in my family that went on to higher education were active members in sororities on their campuses and encouraged me to go Greek as it would make me a stronger leader and a well rounded woman. Little did I know how big an impact Greek life would have on my colligate experience here at University of Lynchburg. I found my place not only in my organization, Alpha Sigma Alpha, but also in a system that extends well beyond ASA to the campus community. The opportunities provided to me by going Greek have helped me to become a leader and involved member of University of Lynchburg, as well as a more confident version of myself.
Whether you’re already counting down the days until recruitment or you’re still not sure if Greek Life is for you, I hope you take the time to check out all the information on this website and that you find it useful. If you have any questions at all please feel free to contact me via email at .
University of Lynchburg’s Panhellenic Council would like to encourage you to #RethinkGreek, and we are looking forward to meeting you!
