Here at Rutgers University, we have over 85 different Greek organizations! Sorority Spotlight helps readers learn more about specific sororities and makes Greek life easier to navigate for those interested.
Formal recruitment is right around corner, and Rutgers would not be complete without its oldest sorority, Gamma Phi Beta. The Delta Mu chapter was founded at Rutgers on April 23, 1977. Gamma Phi Beta was founded at Syracuse University, where the first chapter, the Alpha Chapter, was created. Helen M. Dodge, Frances E. Haven, E. Adeline Curtis, and Mary A. Bingham founded the sorority on November 11, 1874.
GPhiB’s four values are Love, Labor, Learning, and Loyalty. Its symbol is the crescent moon, and its flower is the pink carnation. The motto of the sorority is “Founded On a Rock“. Gamma Phi Beta focuses on sisterhood, community service, and academic achievement.
Their philanthropy is Girls On the Run, dedicated to building strong girls. Girls On the Run gives young girls the opportunity to develop confidence and healthy choices through running games. Throughout the year, sisters of GPhiB host events to fundraisers for their philanthropy.
Remember to follow Gamma Phi Beta’s social media to learn about upcoming events:
