Saabirah Khan Campo, Sigma Sigma Sigma, received the University of Rochester 2024 Presidential Award for Inclusive Workforce.

Congrats Saabi!

Julianne Westrich, Delta Gamma, presented in October to a virtual audience to discuss her experience as the 2023 Iditarod Teacher on the Trail. She was selected for this position, an “educational ambassador” of the race, from a nation-wide pool of applicants, through a rigorous process that included in-person interviews, challenges, presentations, and volunteer obligations onsite at the 2022 Iditarod. Congrats Juli!

Gathering Together

Our Panhellenic sisters gathered together the last few months and are sharing with us! If you have a get-together or social event, send pictures and a write up to [email protected] – we’d love to hear from every group!

The Rochester Pi Phi Alumnae Club has met several times and truly represents alumnae sisterhood! They gathered to celebrate Founders’ Day at The Brown Hound as well as for a holiday celebration! Pi Phi was founded in 1867 at Monmouth College (IL) by 12 amazing women.  They typically have 7 different chapters represented and enjoyed good food and wonderful fellowship. Most recently they collected non-perishables that filled an SUV and were given to the food pantry at Nazareth University. One of Pi Phi’s values is Sincere Friendship and that certainly rings true!

Delta Delta Delta celebrated their Founders’ Day at the Country Club of Rochester.  These sisters celebrated three Gold Circle members (50 years since initiation) and one Silver Circle member (25 years).

Sigma Kappa celebrated their Founders Day at Trata in November. This event kicks off their 150th celebration of their founding. Several members of the Buffalo alumnae chapter also joined them!

The Alumnae Panhellenic Connections newsletter is moving to a quarterly cadence. Check out the newsletter to learn what is happening with our alumnae and collegiate groups.
