Founders Day 2013 News

Happy Founders’ Day!

Published On: 2013-04-26

On April 28, 1867, 12 women at Monmouth College in Monmouth, Illinois, had the vision to form the first secret society for women, Pi Beta Phi. At a time when only five state universities were coed, these courageous women set the stage for a thriving organization that continues to enrich the lives of many during their collegiate years and beyond.

Founders’ Day is a time to reflect on why we joined Pi Beta Phi and what the Fraternity means to us. By being lifelong committed members of Pi Beta Phi, we not only honor our founders but all Pi Phis who have given back to the Fraternity. 

No matter what stage of life, we hope every Pi Phi stays informed of Fraternity events and initiatives, is engaged with her chapter or local alumnae organization and Pi Phi friends, remembers her vow of membership and is inspired to live our Pi Phi values every day. Here are some ways you can contribute to the success of Pi Beta Phi:

Happy Founders’ Day! Thank you for being a lifelong committed member of Pi Beta Phi!
