4: Chapter Officers | Chapter President | Erica Glende | Fraternity Development | Abbey Pincock | Member Development | Victoria Luman | Kaleigh Bright | Finance | Pi Phi is more than just a sorority; it’s a bond of sisterhood and friendship. Its not just the formals, date nights and exchanges, it’s the late nights sitting at the kitchen table, talking about nothing but laughing so hard it hurts, it’s the study sessions at the library helping a sister get ready for a big test when you have to study for your own test, its spending a Friday night helping a sister get ready for her big date and it’s the countless occasions when you think your world might be crumbling and your sisters are there to pick up the pieces. The memories are unforgettable. -Erica Glende chapter president

9: Pi Phi changed my life; through it I found my best friends, future bridesmaids, and it truly enhanced my college experience. Through Pi Phi I learned many things and this would be my advice to future sisters: 1. Someone is always listening. 2. At times being on the Executive Board is really stressful but in the end it is very rewarding to see what you can accomplish; always push the limits and make every I week, formal and sisterhood the best it can be. 3. Sisters will always have your back no matter how small the issue is, just don't be afraid to ask. " Seek ye the beautiful and the good..." PPL 2205 Kelly Frappier
10: Founders' Day April 14, 2012
11: Cottonwood Country Club | Every April, Pi Phis have the opportunity to honor and celebrate the work of our founders. As we celebrate Founders’ Day, we can continue the passion and dedication of our 12 founders by choosing to be lifelong loyal members of Pi Beta Phi. This year marks the Pi Beta Phi Settlement School’s 100th anniversary – a place where Pi Phi’s literacy work began a century ago. It was the Washington D.C., Alumnae Club, led by former Grand President Emma Harper Turner, who proposed the establishment of a settlement school to honor the 50th anniversary of the Fraternity and its 12 founders. -PiBetaPhi.org

18: Sister Week | March 19th- 22nd
19: In place of spring recruitment we had a sister week which was a week dedicated to bonding with our sisters and spending time doing some of our favorite things: baking, singing and playing. Monday was cupcake wars where each family was judged by Alumni on the taste and presentation of their cupcakes. The BB family won presentation and the GG family won taste. Wednesday we had pledge class song competition and performance. The Juniors won! On Thursday there was a big game of Assassin where each Pi Phi was for themselves trying to "assassin" another sister while hiding from a sister that was trying to assassin them. Devon Joslin was the over all winner of the night. Along with all the fun and games all the Big Sisters were given gifts from their Little Sisters making the week even more special. | BB family cupcakes | Juniors- the winners of the pledge class song competition | Alumni who judge the presentation, decorations and taste of all the cupcakes.
