The mission of Pi Beta Phi Fraternity for women is to promote friendship, develop women of intellect and integrity, cultivate leadership potential and enrich lives through community service.
On April 28, 1867 at Monmouth College in Monmouth, Illinois, 12 women joined together to form a secret college society for women. Pi Beta Phi was the first national secret college society of women to be modeled after the Greek letter fraternities for men.
Colors: Wine and Silver Blue
Badge: A golden arrow with Pi Beta Phi's Greek letters on its wings. It also consists of a chain with 12 links, one for each of our founders.
Crest: A lozenge blazoned with the Brownlee family crest. An eagle is displayed on top which is the seal of Monmouth College. The blazing sun has the Latin word "Lux" in the center of the eagle's chest. In the eagle's right talon is the monogram "IC" and the left talon holds the arrow of Pi Phi.
Flower: At the 1890 Galesburg Convention, the wine carnation became the official flower with the words "As it is the rich, wine color that makes the flower attractive, it, too, is the warm, fervent loyalty of its members making Pi Beta Phi beautiful in the eyes of everyone."
The Angel is the unofficial symbol of Pi Beta Phi. It came to popularity in the 1930s after being used in skits often used during recruitment.
Welcome to the Florida BetaChapter of Pi Beta Phi! It is with enormous pride that I introduce you to our incredible sisterhood. Our chapter is comprised of the most remarkable, young women, and I am absolutely honored to have the opportunity to work along side each and every one of them.
Being a part of Pi Beta Phi goes far beyond simply being a member of the Fraternity for women. Each one of our members brings something special to our chapter that sets us apart from the rest. The diversity and depth behind each of these women is truly inspiring.One of the most spectacular things about our chapter is everyone's ability to accept their similarities and differences, in which we bond over this special connection. The members of our chapter aim to uphold our six core values everyday, and they continue to amaze me as they do. Through their schoolwork,volunteer efforts, and daily tasks, the members of Pi Phi demonstrate integrity, lifelong commitment, honor and respect, philanthropic service to others, personal and intellectual growth, and sincere friendship. It is such a gift to see each member’s passion for one another and the community show through on a daily basis.
Words cannot describe how thankfulI am to be a member of this organization. It has provided me with opportunities and experiences that will last a lifetime. Pi Beta Phi has given me the tools to become the woman I have always strived to be. I couldn't imagine what my college experience would be like if I had not found my home at the Florida BetaChapter of Pi Beta Phi.
We all have different reasons for joining but the same reasons for staying. It’s not just four years; it’s for life.
I hope you enjoy a glimpse of our amazing sisterhood and all that Pi Beta Phi has to offer.
