Pi Beta Phi
About Our Chapter

      This year, Oklahoma Beta celebrated our centennial; we have made it 100 years on Oklahoma State's campus! What an exciting and monumental milestone we celebrated. This remarkable accomplishment has stemmed from our 12 founders that established Pi Beta Phi back in 1867. They created a foundation so strong, it has allowed chapters across the nation to develop women of integrity over the past 150 years. The values that our founders instilled in our organization is what has set us apart from the rest for so many years. We strive to recruit and build women of integrity, lifelong commitment, honor and respect, personal and intellectual growth, philanthropic service and sincere friendship.
      Here at Oklahoma Beta, we are defined by these very values. Inside this house are sincere, genuine and joyful women who continually strive for excellence and proceed to challenge one another daily. Everyone is accepted, loved and loyal within these walls. I am a testament to this; my life was altered the day I walked in these doors. I met friends that loved me for who I am, women that would challenge and push me outside my comfort zone and most importantly - I met the organization that would give back to me more than I have put into it. The words "Pi Beta Phi" hold a truly valuable meaning to over 250,000 women across the nation. Everyone discovers this meaning in different manners, but to all women that meaning can only be discovered from the inside looking out.
      I hope that as an alum, current member, parent or visitor, you will find great pride in the way the Oklahoma State chapter of Pi Beta Phi builds women of character. Please feel free to contact me with any questions you may have regarding our Chapter.
