We are the ladies of the New Mexico Alpha Chapter of Pi Beta Phi. Our Chapter was founded in 1946 here at the University of New Mexico.


Big & Little

A big is a mentor, a shoulder to cry on, a hand to lift you up, and wings when yours can’t fly. Every new member is given a big sister and a family within Pi Phi.


I.C. Sorosis

Pi Beta Phi was founded in 1867 at Monmouth College in Monmouth, Illinois, under the original name “I. C. Sorosis”. 12 brave and innovative women formed the first women’s fraternity in the United States.


Read. Lead. Achieve.

Every week, our angels visit and read stories to the children at Horizon Academy West. For Fraternity Day of Service, we helped host a Seuss-themed carnival!



Our Pi Phi sisters earned the angel mascot during WWII when our sisters volunteered as nurses. The soldiers referred to our ladies as their angels.



At the Pi Beta Vibes sisterhood last may, our sisters celebrated our #PiPhiLove by writing affirmations for each other, crafting crowns, and decorating each other with henna.


Personal & Intellectual Growth

Pi Beta Phi strongly emphasizes growth within our members, encouraging high standards of participation in student leadership, and offering incentivized and support-based programs to encourage members to excel in academia.


Sincere Friendship

If you review our core values, you will notice that Sisterhood is not one of them- this is because sisterhood is automatic. We want our chapter to be more than a sorority; a group of sincere friends.




Lifelong Commitment


Throw What You Know


Use Your Wings

Welcome to Pi Beta Phi at the University of New Mexico!

Circle of Sisters

"Sisters are connected throughout their lives by a special bond. Chance made us sisters, hearts made us friends."

Becoming a Pi Phi will not only make your collegiate experience more meaningful, but will present you with new and exciting opportunities. Pi Phi values leadership, academics, service, intellectual development and balance in our members. As a member of Pi Beta Phi, we have discovered a home away from home on our UNM campus! We have let Pi Beta Phi come alongside us as we discover our passions and dreams with our sisters and best friends during the most formative years of our life. We invite you to visit our international website to learn even more about us.
