Do Not Sit on NPHC Plots

Georgia Southern’s Greek life warns students about sitting on historical structures found on campus.

The National Pan-Hellenic Council (NPHC), an organization of historically Black Greek-lettered fraternities and sororities, have structures located in front of Lake Wells, next to Carruth building.

  •  The NPHC plots are not to be sat on. 
  • Elijah Phillips, president of Iota Phi Theta Fraternity, said the plots are more than just a concrete slab. “Most people don’t understand what they signify,” said Phillips. “When they sit on them, I don’t think they do it as disrespect.” 
  • Phillips said the NPHC was created because black students were not allowed to join white fraternities and sororities. The plots signify history and are a representation of how black individuals had to overcome adversity. 

Why it matters: It’s important that GS students respect historical monuments and structures on campus.
