I knew I wanted to go through recruitment after my dad told me about his experience as a collegian and fraternity member at WSU. The friendships and stories he shared with me made me realize what greek life is all about: growing as an individual and finding people to grow with you.
Going through sorority recruitment was very different from what I expected it to be. I felt a rollercoaster of emotions; I was excited, nervous, and even sad at times. But in the end, I was relieved that I found my home away from home. As you meet the sorority members, they reminded you to “trust the process”. Just like me, you’ll think back and say, “Wow, they were right.” Somehow, and someway, you will find your home too — you will find the women that will build you up and encourage you to become the person they know you can be.
Being a Pi Beta Phi and wearing the golden arrow means that you are a person of honor and respect, integrity, lifelong commitment, intellect, and so much more. It means going to football games together, spontaneous dance parties in the foyer, laughing until you cry, and crying until you laugh.
Going into my senior year I am able to reflect on how much Pi Phi has done for me. Pi Beta Phi has made it possible for me to grow into a better friend, leader, and student. Everyday, I am so grateful to be a part of such an amazing sisterhood. Not only are Washington Betas my sisters, but Pi Phis everywhere are my sisters too. This summer I was able to attend convention in Washington DC where I met sisters from near and far. I did not know I could love Pi Phi more, but convention proved me wrong. This was just another reminder of how lucky I am to be the president of such a meaningful organization.
Good luck to all during recruitment. I truly believe you will find something as special as I have.
Go Cougs - Go Greek - Go Pi Phi
Pi Phi Love and Mine,
The Washington Beta Chapter of Pi Beta Phi was founded at Washington State University on July 6, 1912. As one of WSU’s oldest chapters on campus, we have enjoyed over a 100 years of rich bonds of sisterhood. If our walls could talk, the stories they would tell of the laughter and love that our sisterhood has cultivated for more than 100 years. Over the last century, our chapter has seen an array of different women come through our doors, but the one thing that remains the same is the set of core values that our women hold in their hearts.
Pi Beta Phi values are not just words that hang on a wall in our chapter house but they live within all the women who are lucky enough to call themselves a Pi Phi.
Honor and Respect
Personal and Intellectual Growth
Philanthropic Service to Others
As Pi Phis, we live these values everyday of our lives. We place an emphasis on lasting friendships that will endure the test of time. We look forward to finding dynamic women who share our values and want to be an essential part of our chapter’s history.
