  • Give Running Committee

     

    Panhellenic is partnering with a non-profit started by a USC student called Give Running (http://giverunning.org/). Greg Woodburn founded this organization while he was in high school and  has since collected more than 12,000 pairs of running shoes to give to children in need. In addition to shoes donations, he works with children to plan leadership and goal setting activities. 

     

    To support Give Running, USC Panhellenic is planning an afternoon of relay races together with him and the children from 32nd street school. We will all go to McCarthy Quad and play fun games with the kids and teach them about sports, leadership, and team building. The event Run for Good will be on Friday, April 27th from 2-4pm. 

     

  • 2012 Food Truck War

     

    USC Panhellenic Council and Interfraternity Council held a Food Truck War this Spring to benefit one non-profit started by a USC student. This year, we are donating 10% of the proceeds generated from the event to Youth Exploring Passion, a group that provides mentoring to pregnant parenting teens. We raised over $1,700 at the event. 

    Youth Exploring Passion (YEP) is a USC community service organization that provides USC mentors to local low-income pregnant and parenting teens attending an alternative high school. Our mentees are among the top 1% of students in the nation most likely to fail or drop out, and almost never have opportunities to leave their immediate neighborhoods to experience life outside of poverty. The goal of YEP is to provide workshops, field trips to see career settings, and a one-on-one mentor so that the girls can create a better life for themselves and their children. YEP is dedicated to taking the girls out to explore Los Angeles so that they can discover their personal and career-related passions. Thanks to all of your support from the Food Truck Wars, YEP hopes to be able to provide internet to Thomas Riley Alternative High School for Pregnant and Parenting Teens so that the girls finally have access to college websites and applications.

  • Take the Pledge to be a Hero

     

    As USC students, we have the ability to be heroes- we have the ability and freedom to take an action in a moment of time to make a difference, whether it be for a friend, an organization or an issue we are passionate about.   

     

    Take the pledge to be an Every|Day Hero

     

    I pledge to make a difference for people, organizations and issues. I pledge to use my values as my compass, go beyond any barriers, and take actions to foster change. I pledge to live an extraordinary life being an every|day hero.

     

     

  • USC Panhellenic and Interfraternity Councils

    Join In Hopes of Raising Standards

     

    On March 10, 2011, members of the Panhellenic and Interfraternity Councils and their respective communities joined to draft the following contract - a "Pledge to be a Gentleman." This document has since been signed by all fraternity presidents and commits these organizations to strive toward higher morals and self-standards. The finished product was enlarged and placed in display in the USC Office of Greek Life. An unsigned copy is shown below:

  • Panhellenic Hosts Something of Value

     

    On Saturday February 12, Panhellenic hosted an alcohol education program called Something of Value. Something of Value is a national organization that looks to cater alcohol education to the specific needs of the campus at which it holds an event. The Panhellenic board met for several hours the day before with the facilitators sent along with the national advisors of each of our eleven houses to prepare for a USC-specific experience. Saturday then consisted of a mock trial and action-initiative committees. Below is a slideshow of photos from the day's activities!
