Black Greek-letter groups will host forum

GW’s historically black and Latin Greek-letter organizations will host their annual National Pan-Hellenic Council Forum Thursday at the Marvin Center to inform students about Greek-letter life.

The forum will include a panel discussion about the history of GW’s four historically black and two Latin fraternities and sororities, followed by a question and answer session. The Latin groups are not part of NPHC.

(The forum) is an opportunity for people to get insight into our organizations, said Sonja Harris, president of GW’s NPHC.

Harris said NPHC organizations do not have a single rush period like GW’s Interfraternity Council and Panhellenic Association. She said students can learn about unique aspects of the groups and how to express interest in them at the forum.

We’re about community service – serving the GW community and the outside community, Harris said.

Harris said the forum is an important way black Greek-letter groups show their presence on campus.

It’s so people know we’re here and we are a united front, she said.

The forum will be held at the Marvin Center Thursday at 8 p.m.-Rich Murphy
