About Our Chapter

As the Oklahoma Beta Chapter of Pi Beta Phi celebrates 103 years at Oklahoma State University, I cannot help but reflect on the values that Pi Phi stands for. Because of those twelve women who founded our fraternity in 1867, we can celebrate one hundred and three years of developing women to be friends and leaders for life. We are women of integrity, commitment to their fraternity, honor and respect–for themselves and others, personal and intellectual growth, philanthropic service to others, and sincere friendship. Each year as we prepare for formal recruitment, it is these values that we come back to as we seek to continue to recruit and build women of character. We cannot wait to welcome PC ‘22 into our sisterhood!

While it is our members who make our chapter a sisterhood, we are very proud of the accomplishments from OK Beta this year. From Homecoming to Freshman Follies and Varsity Revue, Pi Phi has seen a tremendous amount of success in these events. Our members are also committed to their own personal and intellectual success, as we have consistently ranked in the top 3 for grade point average among other OSU chapters. We have also seen lifelong commitment lived out as we hosted several alumnae reunions this summer, and getting to see a glimpse of some of the sincere friendships made at 324 S. Cleveland St. was incredibly special. As our campus and Greek community continues to change and develop, we recognize that it is time for OK Beta to follow suit. It is with great excitement that we are announcing a multi-million dollar chapter facility improvement project set to begin in May 2023 and be completed by August 2024. Change isn’t always easy, but we are excited to see how this project will contribute to Pi Phi’s continued success.

It is an honor and joy to represent OK Beta Pi Phi to all alumnae, active members, parents, and visitors. If you have any questions about our chapter, I would love to connect with you.

       One of our core values is philanthropic service to others, and is by far one of my favorite values that the women here at Oklahoma Beta embody. As the VP of Community Relations, I have the privilege to help coordinate philanthropy events we host throughout the semester, plan sisterhood events where we do service projects, and encourage members to take part in making the community a better place through volunteering. Throughout the last few years, some philanthropy events that we have hosted have been Arrow Athletics, Lemonade for Literacy, Pie a Pi Phi, Pi Phi Daze, and Wing Ching Ching. The proceeds from these events go towards both our national and local philanthropies, Read>Lead>Achieve and Stillwater HeadStart. Pi Phi’s national philanthropy, Read>Lead>Achieve focuses on implementing literacy initiatives throughout the nation. At Oklahoma Beta we are also able to support literacy initiatives by hosting book drives, participating in reading buddies (CAR) at local elementary schools, and continually advocating for a more literate society. Our local philanthropy, Stillwater HeadStart, is an early education program that prepares children for a lifetime of learning. Members are able to support HeadStart through volunteering there, donating books and clothes, and helping spread the word about the organization and what it represents. Philanthropy has always been one of my greatest passions, and to be surrounded by like-minded women has been one of the best parts of college. I am grateful to be a part of Pi Phi and to be able to make a difference in others lives through our philanthropies.
