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 Beta Chapter of Pi Beta Phi! It is with enormous pride that I introduce you to our incredible sisterhood. Our chapter is comprised of the most amazing young women and I am absolutely honored to have the opportunity to work alongside each and every one of them.
Being a part of Pi Beta Phi goes far beyond simply being a member of the Fraternity. Each one of our members brings something special to our chapter that sets us apart from others. I am constantly amazed with all of the accomplishments my sisters have made. One of the most spectacular things about our chapter is everyone's ability to accept their similarities and differences and bond over the special connection we all share in this sisterhood. The members of our chapter strive to uphold our six core values every day and they continue to amaze me as they do. Through their school work, 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. Their passion to help one another and work together to help others in the community is such a gift.
Words cannot describe how thankful I am to be a member of this organization. Pi Beta Phi has given me friends that will last a lifetime, the best support system I could ask for, and 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 Beta. I hope that you enjoy a glimpse into our amazing sisterhood and understand what it truly means to be a Pi Beta Phi woman.
