Creating a strong sisterhood is a top priority in our chapter. Sisterhood and friendship have been at the core of Pi Beta Phi since the first meeting of our 12 founders in 1867. Today, more than 300,000 women have worn the arrow over their hearts, creating a very long golden chain of friendship. The bonds of wine and silver blue bind us close together, bring out our leadership qualities, fine tune our strengths and motivate us to become the best versions of ourselves. The Pi Phi Blog is full of sisterhood stories. click here to check it out!
A Sisterhood Story From One Of Our Very Own:
"I had trouble adjusting when I first came to Lehigh. I didn't really connect to the people in my dorm or in my classes and was starting to doubt that this school was the place for me. After going through half of a semester filled with homesickness and confusion, I decided it was best to start applying to other schools as a transfer student. My mother, who had been in a sorority herself, at some point convinced me to give the school one last chance by participating in recruitment and I have never looked back since. Within days of joining Pi Beta Phi, I felt like I found a new home. These women who I could now call my sisters were so kind, genuine, strong, and compassionate--I had a gut feeling that I would find my life-long, best friends among these individuals. And I was could not have been more right. As I am coming down to my last couple semesters at Lehigh University, I feel immense gratitude for my family, my friends, Lehigh University, and especially for Pi Beta Phi."
