About Our Chapter
The Virginia Iota chapter of Pi Beta Phi was chartered on the campus of George Mason University on January 15, 2014. We are united by common goals to promote friendship, develop women of intellect and integrity, cultivate leadership potential and enrich lives through community service. Pi Beta Phi is recognized as a premiere organization for women as its members live out our seven core values through everything we do:
Honesty and Respect
Philantropic Service to Others
Personal and Intellectual Growth
A LETTER FROM OUR PRESIDENT
Welcome to Pi Beta Phi! At its core, Pi Phi is a fraternity for women (for we were founded in 1867 before sororities were a common thing) bond together to most noble womanhood. Every chapter, from New York to California, is founded with the same promise that each sister who shines with the wine and silver blue will be held to our core values. Those being: Integrity, Lifelong Commitment, Honor and Respect, Philanthropic Service to Others, Personal and Intellectual Growth, and Sincere Friendship. Yet, these values come to life in individualistic flairs each sister brings, collectively makes our chapter unique. A Pi Phi is any major, whether it be engineering to education, comes from all walks of life, and is a part of an assortment of clubs and hobbies. It’s not in what you do or look like, it’s in your heart that holds true to sincere friendship that you find in a Pi Phi.
Over the past six years of being at George Mason University’s campus, we have cultivated a membership experience that makes being a Pi Phi Patriot one to be proud of. It has been the honor of a lifetime to serve Virginia Iota’s as Chapter President for the 2020 Executive Board. The first time I met a Pi Phi there was something special, it was in the way she prioritizes her dearest friendships and filled the room with the understanding that being who you are is enough. You do not magically become a Pi Phi overnight, for the values of this organization are made up in who you are and aspire to be. Being a Pi Phi has made me a stronger, prouder, more confident, and all together better person. Even while at George Mason University I have found a home to a college of over 37,000 students - a home of 60 angels. On behalf of the Executive Board, Virginia Iota, and myself I hope you enjoy learning more about the angels that make our chapter the place it is. We look forward to meeting you all!
