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.

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!

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!

Unfortunately, my parents weren’t able to find the money to let me join. Instead, I decided to work full-time during the summer and save up so I could finally join a sorority like I always dreamt of! On the first day of recruitment, I was already drawn to Pi Beta Phi. The women I talked to greeted me with warm smiles and genuine kindness that I now can’t picture my life without! I wouldn’t be telling the truth if I told you I didn’t have any concerns or doubts when it comes to joining a Panhellenic sorority, but I am lucky to have found a sorority that sees and accepts me for what makes me unapologetically me. I know I might not look like your everyday sorority girl, but Pi Phi has welcomed me and loved me like a sister from the beginning.

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!
