Pi Beta Phi
At THE UNIVERSITY OF VIRGINIA
About Our Chapter

Letter from the President:


The Pi Beta Phi Fraternity is a national organization for women dedicated to developing women of integrity and fostering lifelong friendships. The Virginia Epsilon Chapter was colonized in 1975 by 23 members, and was the first national sorority on grounds. Today our chapter consists of over 100 members and is a member of the thriving Inter-Sorority Council at UVA.


I am truly honored to have the opportunity to work with and lead such an impressive group of women. The members of our chapter uphold integrity and promote honor, which are both core to the mission and vision of Pi Phi and also ingrained in the UVA community of trust. Through their leadership roles and their variety of involvements across grounds my sisters have pushed me to try new things and provided me with new perspectives. Our chapter women are involved in organizations ranging from University Guides to Virginia Belles to Madison House (and so so many more!). Additionally, their dedication to our organization and each other inspires me every day. I am proud to say that during my time as president we've donated 500 books to local schools, read to children, volunteered at elementary school events, and hosted multiple successful philanthropy events, all of which have raised money for the literacy endeavors of Pi Beta Phi's national philanthropy. These women are impressive, and have pushed me to be the best leader, sister, and friend I can be. I can't express how grateful I am to call these women my sisters and I look forward to nurturing the friendships I've found in Pi Phi for the rest of my life!


Thanks for taking the time to visit our website and don't hesitate to reach out to me or any other member of our exec team!


Pi Phi love and mine,


 Gussie Durham
