 Samford University’s Panhellenic Council received regional recognition at the recent Southeastern Panhellenic Conference (SEPC). Samford Panhellenic received the Public Relations Award recognizing their efforts in outreach over the past year.

SEPC is comprised of approximately 100 colleges and universities spanning 13 states.

Samford Director of Greek Life Denny Bubrig said, "All of our Greeks have been working hard to live up to their promise as organizations and the values they represent. The Public Relations award is fantastic recognition for the Panhellenic community and great affirmation for their work so far."

Panhellenic President Jennifer Nelson, a pharmacy major from Coto de Caza, Calif., said, “This award is a representation of the hard work that Panhellenic is trying to put in to reinvent ourselves. I am excited to see what else will come from our many changes.”
