Welcome to Denver Area Panhellenic

Founded in 1908, Denver Area Panhellenic (DAP) is an alumnae Panhellenic affiliated with National Panhellenic Conference (NPC). DAP is a community-based organization governed by a council of delegates from the 26 NPC sororities.


WE, AS FRATERNITY WOMENstand for service through the development of character inspired by the close contact and deep friendship of individual fraternity and Panhellenic life. The opportunity for wide and wise human service, through mutual respect and helpfulness, is the tenet by which we strive to live. (Manual of Information, 15th Edition)


Fraternity is a social experience based on the fundamental right of a free people to form voluntary associations.  It is one of the enrichments of college life. Fraternities exist because they provide a good democratic social experience; give value beyond college years; create, through their ideals, en ever-widening circle of service beyond the membership; develop the individual’s potential through leadership opportunities and group effort; and fill the need of belonging.



On Panhellenic Friendships

“As a 50-year member of my fraternity, it has been refreshing to work with women from other sororities on events, philanthropies and causes that are quite different than the familiar efforts of my own fraternity. Work on the executive board and several committees has encouraged new friendships and networking opportunities. The Panhellenic experience has been most rewarding and memorable. While serving as Delegate-at-Large, and fulfilling my final year on council, I realized how much I will miss the comraderie that has developed through my involvement with Denver Area Panhellenic.”
