Ritual Story

Celebrate our Ritual

Published On: 2013-02-27

Pi Beta Phi is excited to celebrate National Ritual CelebrationWeek (NRCW), March 4-9, 2013. This week is an important time to remember and discuss what our Ritual means to us, and how it calls us to a higher standard as sorority women. National Ritual Celebration Week will kick off with International Badge Day (IBD) on March 4.

The National Panhellenic Conference celebrated the first International Badge Day in 1997. It has continued to grow since then, bringing together women from all NPC groups in a celebration of our common heritage as sorority women. We can't think of abetter way to usher in spring than by celebrating the beauty of Ritual with all of our NPC friends!  

Here are several ways you can celebrate:  

  • RSVP to the official International Badge Day Facebook event invitation.
  • Wear your badge on Monday, March 4.
  • Download the official NRCW Facebook cover photo or profile photo.
  • Participate in our social media campaign. Pi Phi will be partnering with the National Panhellenic Conference (NPC) to promote their International Badge Day social media campaign. We are asking all members to send pictures of their International Badge Day celebration. Did you and a coworker both wear your badges to work? Are you sharing International Badge Day with your legacy daughter? Are you and your sisters wearing your badges to class? However you're celebrating International Badge Day this year, we'd love to see a picture of you showing off our beautiful Pi Phi badge! You can post the photo to our Facebook wall, tweet to us or send to socialmedia@pibetaphi.org. We can't wait to see how Pi Phis are participating!
  • Join the conversation about Ritual on Facebook and Twitter. We'll be posting questions each day encouraging conversation about what our Ritual means to us and how we can live it each day. On Twitter, use the hashtag #badgeday13 or #NRCW.
  • Check our blog for special posts throughout the week about the history of our badge, the importance of Ritual and more!
  • Check out our Pinterest page for some exciting new photos of our heritage badges! Traditionally kept under lock and key in the archives, we're excited to share photos of some of our beautiful collection with you. The oldest arrow dates back to 1868!
