Governing Bodies

President - MacKenzie Abelli

The National Panhellenic Conference (NPC) is the premier advocacy and support organization for the advancement of the sorority experience, and provides support and guidance for its 26 member inter/national sororities/women's fraternities and serves as the national voice on contemporary issues of sorority life. NPC is one of the oldest and largest women's membership organizations representing more than 4 million women at 655 college/university campuses and 4,500 local alumnae chapters in the U.S. and Canada. This organization governs the four sororities on campus, ensuring all chapters operate and function per national and community standards, and Keene State College policies.

President - Austen Leone

The North-American Interfraternity Conference (NIC), Inc. is the trade association representing 74 International and National Fraternities. The NIC serves to advocate the needs of its member fraternities through enrichment of the fraternity experience; advancement and growth of the fraternity community; and enhancement of the educational mission of the host institutions. The NIC's member organizations have approximately 5,500 chapters located on more than 800 campuses in the United States and Canada with approximately 350,000 undergraduate members. This organization governs the six fraternities on campus, ensuring all chapters operate and function per national and community standards, and Keene State College policies.

Honor Society

President - Ashley Waterman

The purpose of the Order of Omega Greek Honor Society is to recognize those fraternity men and women who have attained a high standard of leadership in interfraternity activities, to encourage them to continue along this line, and to inspire others to strive for similar conspicuous attainment. Members also work to unite outstanding fraternity men and women to create an organization which will help to mold the sentiment of the institution on questions of local and intercollegiate fraternity affairs; to bring together members of the faculty, alumni, and student members of the institution's fraternities and sororities on a basis of mutual interest, understanding and helpfulness; and to help create an atmosphere where ideas and issues can be discussed openly across Greek lines and to help work out solutions.

Unrecognized Organization Position Statement

The Keene State College Fraternity and Sorority Community is rooted in the values that unite all of our organizations. We promote academic success, service to others, leadership development, and fellowship between all members and organizations. We work to create an environment that encourages each student to reach their fullest potential, while living their values every day. Additionally, all recognized fraternities and sororities at Keene State College have organizational, governance board, institutional, and inter/national standards that they must adhere to. Membership in our FSL Community provides students with the opportunity to develop skills that will benefit individuals, their organizations, Keene State College, and the entire Keene Community.

We want to inform people about the clear, decisive line between the recognized organizations at Keene State College, and those unaffiliated organizations who do not meet the standards of the institution. Recognized Greek-letter organizations constantly struggle with negative stereotypes, and unrecognized groups without the same level of accountability erode their ability to be successful. It is in the best interests of the students, our organizations, and Keene State College to educate others on the differences between our recognized and unrecognized organizations. Currently, there are four organizations that operate with no recognition or endorsement from Keene State College:

  • Sigma Rho Upsilon (ΣΡΥ)
  • Kappa Beta Gamma (ΚΒΓ)
  • Tau Phi Xi (ΤΦΞ)
  • Alpha Pi Tau (AΠΤ)
  • Phi Mu Delta (ΦΜΔ)

These groups are no longer recognized student organizations at Keene State College. They have lost this recognition for failure to meet basic standards of the college and/or their inter/national headquarters. While a group may use Greek letters, that may not mean they are a part of the community, or embody the values and standards of the recognized Greek-letter organizations at Keene State College.

There are many great benefits and experiences that can be had by sharing in the unique opportunities offered by a fraternity or sorority. if you are interested in learning more about the fraternity and sorority community, please contact any of our ten recognized organizations. Keene State College is committed to providing a positive, enriching experience for all of our students.
