Step Up or Step Aside
Every fall semester, NPHC hosts a collaborative event known as Step Up or Step Aside (SUSA). During this event, NPHC shares one of their valued traditions of stepping and strolling with Panhellenic sisters for a fun-filled and entertaining show.
Each fall in the spirit of homecoming, NPHC hosts Greekdom: A Divine 9-Step Show. Greekdom is the perfect opportunity to showcase what makes us unique as NPHC Fraternities and Sororities and for our community to see who has what it takes to take home the prize.
The 2020 theme was Homecoming-ish, cause it didn't feel quite like Homecoming without the concert, parade and tailgates. Homecoming 2021 information TBA
LSU Greeks are known for their commitment to philanthropy and community service. Fraternity and sorority members contribute thousands of hours each semester to philanthropies and community service projects. Through annual fundraising and hands-on service, LSU Greeks raise thousands of dollars and record numerous hours of volunteer time. During the 2018-19 school year, Greeks donated more than $900,000 and performed nearly 43,500 hours of community service.
Trick or Treat Down the Row
One of the most popular traditions of LSU Greek Life is the annual Trick-or-Treat Down the Row sponsored by Panhellenic Council (PHC).
Held the Sunday before Halloween, this free event brings hundreds of families to campus. West Lakeshore Drive, also known as Sorority Row, is blocked off for this two-hour event. Children can go door-to-door to all of the sorority houses and get candy from chapter members. Most sororities even threw in a theme, ranging from Luau to Decades. Houses also have crafts, face-painting, and photo booths.

Greek Excellence Gala
The Greek Gala is held early in the spring semester to honor alumnae and alumni members who exemplify the ideals of their sorority or fraternity creed or code. These alumni are of senior rank in the community, their organization or their profession. We honor these individuals for their notable accomplishments in Greek life, in the community, or their professions. The Greek Excellence Gala was scheduled for March 13, 2020 but it had to be cancelled.
Songfest takes place in the spring semester, Chapters are randomly paired to create eleven ensemble groups. Each group performs a choreographed dance routine for five judges. The judges’ scores are combined with three bonus point opportunities: T-shirt sales, ticket sales and a banner competition. The highest point totals determine First, Second, and Third place winners. There is also recognition for judges’ awards, including Best Male Performance, Best Costume, and Crowd Appeal.
