Pi Beta Phi|Fraternity and Sorority Life

What does it mean to be a Pi Phi?

Being a Pi Phi means many things.  It's one thing to live by values, but it's another to lead with values, and that's just what the women of Pi Beta Phi do.

So just what are our values? 

Integrity - In the crazy and stressful world of college, it can be difficult to follow this value. But if we ever find ourselves questioning what is wrong or right, we have our sisters to guide us.

Lifelong Commitment - We believe being a Pi Phi should go far beyond our college years. Our organization offers alumnae clubs all across the country for members to join after they graduate so they still stay involved. This way we always have sisters close by.

Honor and Respect - In order to be a productive and functioning sorority, it is important that we not only honor and respect our Pi Phi sisters, but as well as anyone else we may come in contact with. We encourage our members to be active in other organizations on campus as well as involve themselves in the activities of other Greek chapters. We often attend philanthropy events hosted by other chapters such as Kappa Kappa Gamma's Wing Fling, Sigma Chi's Derby Days, and Delta Delta Delta's 24 Hour Pancake Breakfast. We also host the  Monmouth Duo with Kappa Kappa Gamma. Pi Beta Phi and Kappa Kappa Gamma were both founded at Monmouth College in Monmouth, Illinois, so we honor that by hosting an event with them, be it a formal, dinner, or another type of event.

Personal  and Intellectual Growth - We always encourage our members to do well in academics, but being a Pi Phi means much more than having good grades. It's about learning, finding out who you are, and becoming part of something bigger than yourself, which is why we have many members involved in organizations such as Concerts and Convocations, Best of the West Film Club, the Honors Program, Cardinal Key, intramural sports, and many more.

Philanthropic Service to Others - Our philanthropy is literacy and is a huge part of who we are as an organization. We hold events year round for our national and local philanthropies, First Book and Champions are Readers. For First Book, we host our annual Pi Phi Pie Fest, where people bid money to pie people in face and we then donate the money to the organization, which gives books to children who are without them. For Champions are Readers, we go to elementary schools and read to the students.

Sincere Friendship - This value has many different meanings. It can mean staying up all night helping a sister study for a test, showing up at a sister's room with a movie and a blanket when she's had a rough day, or still being there for each other when you recognize your differences. No matter the meaning, it is an essential value in our foundation.
