The Gamma Phi Beta Sorority was established in 1874 with the intention to inspire the highest type of womanhood. Today, we continue this mission, and aim to build confident women of character who celebrate sisterhood and make a difference in the world around us. We promote lifelong commitment, intellectual and personal growth and service to humanity; perpetuate our heritage as we commit to the growth of our sorority; foster enduring friendships; advocate ethical behavior, respect, authenticity, accountability, and integrity, and aspire to excellence in all that we do.
