come put on the pi phi Arrow

Our founders established Pi Beta Phi with the vision of extending sisterhood and friendship to as many women as possible. Today, Pi Phis continue to be confident, diverse women who desire authentic friendships, seek opportunities to lead and dream of making an impact in the world. Our members find that Pi Phi sisterhood is more than four years — it's for life.

The friendships and bonds I have found with the women in this chapter have become a sisterhood I know I can fall into whenever I need. They are my celebration parade when something amazing happens or my group of arms to run into after a tragedy. The sisters I now have will be in my life forever because they have made me who I am today.

121323495_397233721277441_8179434591736964985_n.jpgI love Pi Phi because I am surrounded by women who push me to be the best version of myself. The people within this chapter challenge me, comfort me, support me, accept me and love me for who I am, every second of every day. I could not have found a more perfect home, for not only my 4 years at OU, but for all the years to come!

Although I did not know it at the time, Pi Phi would become such a foundational pillar to my experience at WSU. I was welcomed & wanted by women who saw value in me. I met kind, loyal and inspirational women who work toward their goals, and I admired that in this chapter. Choose people who choose you! This resonated with me during recruitment and it could not be more true to why I still choose Pi Phi to this day!

123248452_1716101335213513_5837741790543100782.jpgThis organization helped me improve and develop a love for myself. Pi Phi became a blessing by surrounding me with positive influences in my life who supported me as I grew to be a better and stronger woman. This is truly why I have made it this far in my life. My experience led me to some of the best people and some of the best memories that I did not think were possible. I am proud of the woman Pi Phi shaped me to be and I will forever be grateful and love the wine and silver blue and all that comes with it.

Children’s literacy was always something I had been passionate about and the fact that Pi Phi helped so many kids in the Athens community as they learned to read was something I absolutely loved. With the literacy and mentorship programs, an annual book drive honoring our late sister Brittany Feldman, and funding an FDS500 grant for Books for Keeps, I was blown away by the amazing acts of service the women in this chapter were able to do!
