Why NPC? Fraternity is a social experience based on the fundamental right of a free people to form voluntary associations. It is one of the enrichments of college life. Purpose of NPC – to assist collegiate and alumnae chapters – cooperate with colleges and universities – foster interfraternal relationships. Fraternities exist because they: – Provide a good democratic social experience. – Give value beyond college years. – Create, through their ideals, an ever-widening circle of service beyond the membership. – Develop the individual’s potential through leadership opportunities and group effort. – Fill the need of belonging
