Florida Zeta Virginia Iota Installation Story

Pi Beta Phi Installs Its 199th and 200th Chapters

Published On: 2014-02-26

Pi Beta Phi is excited to announce the installation of its Virginia Iota Chapter at George Mason University and its Florida Zeta Chapter at the University of Tampa.

The Virginia Iota Chapter celebrated its installation January 24-25, 2014. With record breaking attendance at both the Cookie Shine on Friday night and the Installation Banquet on Saturday night, the new chapter is off to a great start. In honor of attending her 50th collegiate chapter installation, Past Grand President Sis Mullis, South Carolina Alpha, gave the keynote address during Saturday night's banquet. Things have been busy since installation with the chapter placing 3rd in homecoming activities, sending Executive Council members and Alumnae Advisory Committee members to Leadership Academy and holding an Officer Leadership Retreat.

The following weekend, January 31-February 1, marked the installation of Pi Beta Phi's 200th chapter, Florida Zeta. Many Pi Phis traveled directly from Virginia Iota's installation to join the women of Florida Zeta for their special weekend. Always supportive, many members of the University of Tampa Greek community attended the chapter's Cookie Shine on Friday. In honor of being the 200th chapter installed, Fraternity Archivist and Historian Fran DeSimone Becque, New York Alpha, gave an inspiring keynote speech about the Fraternity's extension history during the installation banquet. The newly initiated women of Florida Zeta have settled into the Greek community by participating in Greek week, attending the colonization ceremony for the newest men's Fraternity on campus, Alpha Tau Omega, and will be participating in Relay for Life in April.
