The Women's Panhellenic Association oversees the Fall primary recruitment process, and any Continuing Open Bidding events which occur later in the Fall or during the Spring. The council also hosts a series of healthy body image and female empowerment programming each September called "Love Yourself Week." Additionally, the executive board and member organizations host an annual event in March called "Sisterhood of the Traveling Dresses," where a donated storefront in the area is set up for local area students to get a prom/event dress, shoes, accessories at no charge. The council regularly hosts a Scholarship recognition event in February, and member organizations hold various philanthropic, service, and educational programs for the campus community.
