Smile Pi Phi Roll Call!

Y'all, I am so thrilled to see so many Pi Phis on GC! I've hoped for this for over a year and now there are so many!

Let's do a roll call like some of the other sororities are doing!

Chapter: Alabama Gamma

Status: alum

Current ofices: too busy with the 13 dwarfs now, was AAC for rush at Ala Gamma

Alum clubs in past or present?: Honolulu; Fayetteville, AR; Auburn

Why did you pledge Pi Phi? I loved the sisterhood and the symbols, and that fabulous pref party convinced me!

Carnation, I must just be following you around today!
This is a great idea, I would love to know who else is around...

I am an alum of Washington Gamma.

I belong to the Seattle and Tacoma Alum Clubs, and I have served on the Washington Gamma AAC for the past 5 years, currently as Chairman and counterpart to VP Social, Rush, and Secretary, although I have done membership and Moral in the past...basically whatever comes up!

As for why I went Pi Phi...from the very first rush party I attended I thought the Pi Phis were energetic, smart, and clearly had the closest sisterhood of any of the 6 sororities on our campus. I am still "Pi Phi or die" and I am so proud to be a alumnae of our chapter and our national fraternity!

Why did you pledge Pi Phi? Because all of the girls seemed genuine, and I loved how they made me feel welcome whether it was before or during rush.

Status: Pledge (Initiation begins on February 28th!)
Current Office: Our pledge class does this on the pledge retreat (next weekend!)
Why I chose Pi Phi: I knew a lot of girls coming into the house and loved each one. I also felt that the girls really wanted me for who I am, not because I filled some sort of quota.

Chapter: Tennessee Gamma

Status: Alumna since graduating in 1989

Offices: While active, I was our Arrow correspondent and also was editor of the fall rush handbook my senior year. I don't hold an office in my alum club now, but since I work at a newspaper, I can get items about meetings and philanthropy projects published. Really neat fact: Since our city is just about 50 miles away from Gatlinburg, Arrowmont and Pi Beta Phi Elementary School are mentioned in the paper several times a week.

Why I pledged Pi Phi: From the moment I walked into the Pi Phi suite (there are no sorority houses in Tennessee) during open house, I felt right at home. Then, when I cried during the preference ceremony -- we were allowed to go to two pref parties -- my decision was easy to make. When I was initiated and learned our ritual, I knew I'd been led there for a reason. The older you get, the more Pi Phi's ideals mean to you, and I try to live my life each day according to them.

Chapter: Mississippi Alpha

Status: Almuna

Current offices: VP Membership/ACRIC Boston City Alumnae Club...

Past offices: Asst. Historian

Alum clubs in past or present?: I belong to the Boston area Pi Phi Alum group.

Why did you pledge Pi Phi? During recruitment... the diversity of the chapter showed in their activities, the sisterhood between the members shined through and I got the feeling that no matter what I pursued in college that their would be 100 girls supporting me. Little did I know that all those qualities would also be present after college. I LOVE PI PHI and all my sisters!!!!

ETA: My new position in the Boston City Alumnae Group!!!

Chapter: Ohio Alpha, Ohio University

Status: Alum

Current Offices: I am on AAC as Membership and Pan Hel advisor

Alum Clubs: Presently in Ann Arbor

Why did I pledge Pi Phi? I met a Pi Phi who was a terrific person (we are still great friends) and I decided that if she was what Pi Phis were like, I wanted to be one! Once I met the other women during rush, I knew I had found a wonderfully diverse group who, even though they were different, held similar beliefs. Being a Pi Phi has been one of the best experiences of my life.

A side note: I have two daughters. Both of them are also Ohio Alphas! Sharing Pi Phi in this way has been a true blessing.

Chapter: alberta alpha, University Of Alberta

Status: active

Current office:Secretary

past offices: panhellenice delegate, VP mental advancement, historian(2) and arrow correspondant.

why I chose pi phi: Truth be told, I genereally don't like girls. I find them to be petty and unsupportive. I have 2 close girlfriends, all the rest of my friends are boys. Then I met the piphis. Here were a bunch of women that I truly liked and respected-not just one of them, but ALL of them. I had to join. So I did. It was the best decision I ever made. My sister goes to university in a year. She already wants to go piphi!

Chapter: Ontario Gamma

Status: Alum

Office: AAC president and Panhel advisor

Past Offices: AAC advisor for VP Social and Panhel

Why Pi Phi? I wanted to be a part of a sisterhood again, since I came from an all-girls school. I loved the tradition behind the group and the benefits of membership after graduation. I'm so proud because my younger sister joined my chapter last year and just got elected to VP Social, one of the positions I held as an active!

Why Pi Phi? Honnestly? They were the only girls on campus who seemed sincere and diversified. I loved the feeling I got from them. Tonight was our member/pledge/alum retreat and it was AWESOME! I got my big sis tonight! It was so great to see how Pi Phi had affected so many different people!

Chapter: California Eta (UC Irvine)

Pledge Class: Fall 2000!

Position: I just finished being Parliamentarian (not all chapters have this position though)

Why I pledged Pi Phi: My sister is a Pi Phi from UC Riverside which deifnitly swayed my decision, but also because I was able to have a "normal" conversation with all of the Pi Phis during rush. I was unsure of my decision when I first pledged, but now I realize that pledging Pi Phi was one of the best decisions I have ever made! I have loved my time in Pi Phi and I look forward to a life of friendship and sisterhood!

pi phi love,

Status: I'm and active Active

Past Office: Jr. Panhellenic Delegate (Jr. Panhell Recruitment), Social Chair

Current Office: Sr. Panhellenic Delegate (Sr. Panhell Recruitment), VP Mental

Why Pi Phi? Simply because my best friend pulled me in... but the bigger reason is why I stayed and became so active. Because they're my family and my support system for all aspects of my life.

valdes, I've finally checked it out. Now to get the rest of the chapter here.
