Letter from the President


Hello & welcome to the best four years of your life. 

We're the University of California, Riverside's College Panhellenic Association. Throughout this website you will be able to find what make our vibrant community of over 850 collegiate women so great.

My name is Nayaab Kazmi and I am honored to be this year's Panhellenic President and serve on the Panhellenic council along with our eight other officers. Together we foster the Panhellenic values of sisterhood, leadership, scholarship, and service within the community. We are comprised of seven different amazing and diverse chapters, each with their own unique history and philanthropic causes. We pride ourselves on our ability to come together as one. From singing and eating pizza together on karaoke nights to raising money for our adopted philanthropy, Circle of Sisterhood, the Panhellenic community at the University of California, Riverside truly understands the importance of unity. In our Panhellenic community, you will find student-athletes, student body senators, women in the university honors program, resident advisors, and all sorts of women from all sorts different backgrounds who strive for excellence everyday. 

College is an exciting time and it can be daunting, but you don't need to go through it alone. Joining a sorority as a shy first year at the University of California, Riverside was one of the best decisions I have made thus far and it has enriched my college experience in ways I could never have imagined. Whether it's watching The Office or planning out our dream careers, I have countless invaluable memories with women who I would never have met without the Panhellenic community. I know it sounds cliché, but all clichés hold some truth and the gift of sisterhood is unlike anything else. By joining one of our seven sororities at the University of California, Riverside, you will not only gain sisters within your own chapter, but sisters throughout the community. I invite you to be a part of our bond and experience the Panhellenic spirit first hand. 

The best is yet to come and we hope to be part of your adventure here at UCR. 

Nayaab Kazmi
