Who We Are

The purpose of the NPHC shall be to foster cooperative actions of its members in dealing with matters of mutual concern. To this end, the NPHC promotes the well-being of its affiliate fraternities and sororities, facilitates the establishment and development of local councils of the NPHC and provides leadership training for its constituents.

What Funds Go Towards

The National Panhellenic Council (NPHC) is fundraising to bring Greek plots to Loyola’s campus. Plots are designed to represent each historically black Greek-lettered organization within the NPHC. Plots provide a space for alumni and current members to reflect, celebrate, and honor their sorority or fraternity’s mission, values, and goals. By having plots on Loyola’s campus, NPHC members will a safe space on campus, receive more exposure among students, and it will also increase alumni relations. Currently, Loyola University New Orleans is one of the only universities in New Orleans who does not have Greek plots on campus.

The Eta Theta Chapter of Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority, Inc.

The ‘Exquisite’ Eta Theta Chapter of Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority, Incorporated. was the first black Greek-lettered organization chartered on the campus of Loyola University New Orleans in 1972. For the past 49 years, the women of the Eta Theta chapter have been serving both the campus and the greater New Orleans Community. Members of the chapter deeply value “Service to all Mankind”, a key part of the organization's purpose, which can be seen through their work in the community. This semester, the chapter provided resources and assistance to those impacted by Hurricane Ida, initiated a conversation on the mental health of students, donated Halloween buckets for children in the New Orleans area, promoted the financial literacy of students through an interactive budgeting program, designed and prepared rain barrels for homes in need to prevent future flooding and sinking of the city, volunteered at an Edible Schoolyard and wrote holiday letters to nursing-home residents. 

Current chapter members are also heavily involved in campus life including, the Student Government Association, the Women’s Resource Center, Residential Life, Black Student Union, and have also received numerous Magis Awards presented by the University. The women of the Eta Theta Chapter are the epitome of grace and compassion and always aim to serve their community in any capacity they can while maintaining phenomenal academic standards. 

In collaboration with NPHC, the Eta Theta chapter members are requesting NPHC plots to recognize and celebrate the work of this sorority and the other black Greek-letter organizations on Loyola’s campus. It is important that this sorority and other NPHC organizations are able to fully experience the culture and history that comes with being a part of these organizations. Plots symbolize the time, dedication, and most importantly the lifelong commitment we all made to serving our community here at Loyola and beyond.

Rho Epsilon Chapter of Alpha Phi Alpha Fraternity, Inc.

The brothers of the Rho Epsilon Chapter of Alpha Phi Alpha Fraternity, Inc. have been serving the Loyola and New Orleans communities for 33 years. This year, members have worked with the American Diabetes Association to raise awareness about issues of diabetes in the black community, the Second Harvest Food Bank to give back to those in need after Hurricane Ida, and so many other organizations. The chapter just completed Alpha Week, where we finished the week off with the “Black and Gold Gala”, in which we donated all collected funds to St. Jude’s Children’s Research Hospital.

On campus, our members can be found working in many different capacities. Whether it be the Student Government Association, Lemon Pepper, Loyno Pre-Law, or Res-Life, our members continue to uphold our motto, “First of all, servants of all, we shall transcend all”. 

NPHC plots not only symbolize the work this chapter has done at Loyola but furthermore symbolize the work this fraternity has done worldwide throughout our 114-year history. It is common to have plots on a university campus, and it is past time this campus honor and recognize the work done by all NPHC fraternities and sororities at Loyola University New Orleans.
