From The Girls Of Georgia Alpha
Creating a strong sisterhood is a top priority in our chapter. Sisterhood and friendship have been at the core of Pi Beta Phi since the first meeting of our 12 founders in 1867. Today, more than 300,000 women have worn the arrow over their hearts, creating a very long golden chain of friendship. The bonds of wine and silver blue bind us close together, bring out our leadership qualities, fine tune our strengths and motivate us to become the best versions of ourselves. The Pi Phi Blog is full of sisterhood stories.
“One of the most exciting parts of coming to college is finding your home away from home. From the first time I stepped on pi phi’s lawn during recruitment I knew this is exactly where I wanted to be. I felt right at home with every conversation and I was eager to get involved with the incredible network of sisters and opportunities pi phi had to offer. For me, pi phi brought not only friendships that will last a lifetime but also a community of inspiring women who will continue to shape my college experience and years beyond. There is no place like pi phi!”

“Coming from out of state, I didn’t know anyone at UGA and was nervous to go through recruitment. I wanted to find my place at such a big school; somewhere I could completely be myself. That was exactly what I found at Pi Phi. Immediately, I met the most encouraging, genuine, welcoming group of girls. In Pi Phi, everyone celebrates authenticity and individuality. Everyone is committed to giving back to the Athens community and constantly strives to help one another. I am inspired to be the best version of myself and am surrounded by the most loving people who never fail to make me laugh. I found my best friends here, and I cannot imagine my freshman year without Pi Phi. I am forever proud to be a Georgia Alpha and SO happy with my decision to go Pi Phi!!”

“I love meeting new people and Pi Phi really brings a diverse group of people. Everyone has different majors, lifestyles, things they’re involved in, etc. I feel like we’re one of the most diverse groups of people on campus. There’s always something different to do with someone. Like if I wanna go to the art museum there’s someone to do that with, If I want ice cream I know my big would want to get some too! It’s just a refreshing feeling knowing there’s always someone there."
