Pi Beta Phi Installs at Emory University  

ATLANTA—APRIL 20, 2016 – Pi Beta Phi celebrated the installation of its Georgia Beta Chapter at Emory University April 15–17, 2016. Many area alumnae and collegians joined the 92 Georgia Beta collegians and two alumna initiates to celebrate the installation of Pi Beta Phi’s 139th active collegiate chapter. Campus friends, family and alumnae attended the Cookie Shine, a Pi Phi tradition, on Friday evening in addition to the Installation banquet on Saturday night. The weekend concluded on Sunday with chapter members attending their first chapter meeting and officers being installed by Grand President Paula Pace Shepherd.

Immediately after colonizing recruitment in February, the New Members were eager to begin their legacy on the Emory campus. It was a busy semester for the women as they hosted Lollipops for Literacy for Fraternity Day of Service, formed a team for Relay for Life, raised money for Emory Miracle (Dance marathon) and participated in a 5K fundraiser hosted by Sigma Phi Epsilon.

“I’d like to offer a special thank you to the Georgia Beta Alumnae Advisory Committee,” said Grand Vice President Membership Rae Wohlhueter Maier. “The 12 women who are serving on AAC offered incredible support throughout the weekend. With their support, the Georgia Beta Chapter is destined for great things.”
