Welcome to Gamma Phi Beta at Alma College!
On November 11, 1874, four women at Syracuse University had a vision of an organization founded on the ideals of sisterhood, love, labor, learning and loyalty. Today we move forward with the principles of connect, impact, shine. Welcome to that vision.
Members of Gamma Phi Beta Sorority, one of the 10 oldest women's organizations in North America, are proud of our rich and accomplished history, dating back to our founding. During an era when women were discouraged from attending college, four bold and courageous friends came together to form a women's society. They bonded together to face adversity and encourage one another's intellectual growth. Now, more than 135 years later, we celebrate the vision and dedication of those women for whom the word "sorority" was first coined - and all who have come since.
Known at Alma College for our black letters and pink bandanas, wherever we go - we make a statement! Because of our love of our bandanna, the "paisley" design has become a symbol for our Epsilon Beta chapter. We participate in various annual events each year including our philanthropy efforts to support Building Strong Girls with our Crescent Classic Pancake Breakfast, Spagammie Sweet Tooth Booth and Relay for Life. On campus, we are very involved with our Alma Greek Life community and participate in Greek Week, Sigma Chi's Derby Days and other Panhellenic chapter's events.
We also have lots of great sisterhood events including movie nights, work out sessions, Pink Carnation - our closed formal dance in the spring, Senior Celebrations, Pantroness Desserts and more!
If you are interested in learning more about our sisterhood, be sure to join us for one of our pre-recruitment events. Each year we hold G Phi B Under the Sea, Goo Phoo Boo, Holly House and Winter Wonderland to give potential new members a chance to meet our sisters and learn more about what we are all about!
Look around our site and see all the fun we have!
