International Badge Day

International Badge Day is Monday, March 7

RSVP to the Badge Day event from NPC on Facebook here

International Badge Day was established in 1997 by the National Panhellenic Conference to set aside a day for women -- in sororities in all different umbrella organizations -- throughout the world to wear their sorority badges or letters in a celebration of sisterhood.

This year’s theme is: “Wear Your Letters on Your Heart.”

Join us in celebrating by "Wearing Your Letters on Your Heart" and inviting all sorority women you know to do the same! You can also wear your badge virtually by making it your profile picture on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, etc. that day. Be sure to use #badgeday16 when posting.

And join us at our Badge Day service event on March 3.
