Panhel provides various programming events throughout the year for its chapters and members. Programs range from discussions on risk management, mental health and chapter development, to bonding events like Valentine's Brunch, International Women's Day Gala, to philanthropic and community service events like clothing and food drives. New members go through an education process with their sororities emphasizing academics, alcohol safety, anti-hazing, and leadership development before they become initiated members.

In addition to the annual Greek Week philanthropic events, each chapter has individual philanthropy and community service events throughout the year, which generate huge benefits for the Pitt community, and the City of Pittsburgh at large. Each chapter prioritizes academic and professional development, as well as community service to further the bonds of sisterhood represented in all Panhellenic organizations.

Each Panhellenic chapter is unique, and potential new members can easily find their new home in Pitt Panhel. All of our chapters provide a safe, welcoming atmosphere for anyone looking to further their college experience by joining a sorority.

With this wide reach, IFC has penetrated the top ranks of most other campus organizations, including Student Government Board, Pitt Program Council and the Pitt Pathfinders. IFC embraces the tradition of Greek Life, and its mission to produce high-quality young men. The men of IFC thrive off of the deep bonds of brotherhood they form with their chapter members, and it is these bonds that give them the strength to serve their chapter. In addition to the annual Greek Week philanthropic events, each chapter has individual philanthropy/service events throughout the year, which generate huge benefits for the Pitt community, and the City of Pittsburgh at large. 

IFC provides various programming events throughout the semester for its member chapters. New members go through an education process stressing academics, alcohol safety, and other issues that are important for new Greeks. IFC also provides seminars on best practices for each chapter’s Risk Managers. Chapter treasurers can learn about better financial management through the financial guidance provided by IFC’s chapter finances management sessions. 

Each IFC chapter is unique, and potential new members can easily find a house into which they will fit and not feel pressured to change who they are or how they act. Over a college career, membership in an IFC brotherhood is often the one thing that is constant in a student’s life, and therefore it can have profound positive effects on the way a man goes through his undergraduate years, and ultimately makes the next step after graduation.
