24: Big/Little Week! | "Big little week was, in my opinion, the greatest part of first semester. I remember going back to my room every day to find new and amazing surprises from my big! Not to mention the incredible way she decorated my dorm. Each day the surprises and decorations got better and better, getting me more excited to return home after a long day of classes. On the final day when my big revealed herself I was SO surprised and excited. I can't wait until next year, when I can make my little as happy during big little week as my big made me." -Joan Trachtenburg, Fall 2011
25: For three days, big sisters decorate their littles' rooms before reveal!

28: GREEK | All Shook Up | Pi Phi's Greek Sing Chairs: Maria Warchola, Emily Pambianco, Lyssa Hurvitz
29: SING | This year, our partners were the brothers of DTD and AGR! Our chapter put countless hours into practicing for the show and we won 5th place in the long performance category, along with Best Male Lead and Best Female Lead! | Starring: Rachel Yurchak as Natalie Zack Bird as Chad
30: Homecoming | Our theme was Jungle Book!
31: Philanthropy | Bobbing for Apples! | Pi PHi at ASA's Philanthropy event!
32: In early October, our chapter (along with our THON partners SAE) attended a Central Mountain high school football game in honor of Courtney Jarrett, one of our THON children who passed away from Leukemia. The Jarretts hold this event every year and usually donate the money they raise to Leukemia Awareness, but this year decided to donate the proceeds to Pi Phi and SAE's THON total! We wore orange, Courtney's favorite color, to support her and her family.
33: Canning Trips | This semester, we went on two canning trips to raise money for the largest student-run philanthropy in the world, THON! All of the money we raise goes to the Four Diamonds Foundation to help find a cure for pediatric cancer!
34: Penn State Proud!
35: Love, The Pennsylvania Epsilon Chapter of Pi Beta Phi
