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.

Alyssa-Ambriz.jpgI knew Pi Phi was for me from the very beginning because I was uplifted and surrounded by such authentic women who inspired me and who were committed to the same values that I was. The impact that Pi Phi has made on my life is one that I will never forget and I couldn’t be more grateful to be apart of such an inclusive and inspirational chapter. As I enter my senior year at ASU, I wouldn’t want to call any other ladies my sisters!

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!

Anna-Merrett.jpgI knew I had to go Pi Phi because I couldn’t stop smiling the whole time I was in the house, during every round of recruitment. Instantly, I felt so at home and so comfortable around every girl I met, and I knew it was the house for me. Moving to Iowa from so far away, I felt like I had a new sense of home in a new place!!

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 & 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 & it could not be more true to why I still choose Pi Phi to this day!
