Panhellenic Association

Quincy University’s National Panhellenic Conference

The Quincy University Panhellenic Association stands as a governing body of Alpha Omicron Pi and Phi Sigma Sigma. We strive for the growth of individual chapters and the fraternity system, encourage the highest possible academic, social, and moral standards. We also organize and sponsor membership recruitment, and most importantly, promote friendships, harmony, and unity among members and chapters of both sororities.
