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.
This year's Homecoming theme is “Purple Reign.” LSU Greek organizations will be paired to participate in a lawn decoration contest, where groups construct and decorate structures that embody “Purple Reign.” We encourage family and friends to take a stroll down Sorority Row to view decorations before the big game.
The Greek community will also participate in the annual CANapalooza fundraiser, an exciting service opportunity benefiting the Baton Rouge Food Bank and LSU Food Pantry.
A full schedule of Homecoming activities will be available at lsu.edu/homecoming.
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 is scheduled for March 8, 2019.
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. Songfest is scheduled for April 9, 2018.
