NPHC Garden

The Brick Campaign has ended and All brick submissions completed by March 28, 2016 will have bricks placed at the NPHC Garden for Homecoming 2016. You may continue to give a gift for the NPHC scholarship. Please visit the website for information on Homecoming 2016 and continued progress on the project.

The NPHC Garden Project was developed to celebrate all the nine fraternities and sororities of the National Pan-Hellenic Council (NPHC), commonly known as the Divine 9 at East Carolina University. These organizations have added value to ECU’s campus since the first organization arrived in 1971. ECU has benefited from these organizations because of their commitment to civic engagement, leadership, academic achievement, and providing a sense of belonging for students. East Carolina University has now developed an initiative to recognize these organizations in time for the 45th anniversary of their founding on our campus.


This NPHC Garden will create a positive environment for NPHC organizations to unite in efforts to promote their fraternities and sororities while educating students about the history of these diverse organizations.
