The Miami University Chapter of the National Pan-Hellenic presents to you our first "Meet and Greet with NPHC", presented especially for the Panhellenic Council and Interfraternal Council. During this event, the five historically African-American fraternities and sororities on Miami's campus will introduce both national and local history as well as perform a small show. Afterwards, as a Tri-Council, we will all have the opportunity to get to know one another and foster future relationships.

Join Alpha Omicron Pi's Sisters for Soldiers



The members of Alpha Omicron Pi are creating and sending care packages to soldiers stationed overseas to show our gratitude and support. This program helps bring a sense of joy to each soldier who is constantly preoccupied with the emotions associated with war. While including basic necessities, sisters are encouraged to personalize their boxes with handheld games, golf balls, cards, puzzles, etc. This unique twist to the standard care package is aimed at showing our appreciation to our armed forces.


What to include: magazine, books, puzzles, candy & trail mix (in original packaging), small drink mix packets, t-shirts & gym shorts, board games, cards, footballs, soccer balls, movies, remote controlled devices (helicopters & such), calendars, air fresheners, and of course... a note of appreciation!
