Gamma Phi Beta President:
In 1874 at Syracuse University, four inspirational young women founded Gamma Phi Beta. Their goal was to promote the highest type of womanhood through education, social life, and service to the community. Today, Gamma Phi Beta has over 110 collegiate chapters in the United States and Canada. The term "sorority" was coined especially for Gamma Phi and had been used ever since.
Gamma Phi Beta works to promote leadership and resiliency in youth through a partnership with CampFire USA. Gamma Phi Beta at Creighton University has over 100 members and we pride ourselves on our philanthropic projects, social events, academics and sisterhood bonding.
Our colors are brown and mode; our symbol is the crescent moon; our flower is the pink carnation; and our mascot is the alligator. Our service to the community is relentless as we actively participate in various philanthropic events. Each fall we host a Bowling tournament to benefit Catholic charities, and in the Spring our "Wing Fling" baseball tailgate raises money for local youth. We are working on donating more of our time and money through CampFire USA in Omaha with weekly tutoring at Jackson Elementary and financially supporting a "Campfire Spark".
Our social schedule is full as well. We hold two date parties a semester, semi-formal in the fall, and formal in the spring. Plus, we hold mixers with other fraternities and sororities. Date parties and mixers are full of fun with themes like, "G-Phi Bling", "The Breakfast Club" and the annual Halloween party, "Goo Phoo Boo" (to name a few).
The Creighton University chapter of Gamma Phi Beta is recognized internationally for its excellence in academics, community involvements, and Public Relations. At 2005 convention in Cincinnati, Ohio, our chapter received the following awards:
- Chancellor E. Haven Award (Highest chapter GPA Nationally). Great grades are awarded through Gator Grades!
- Community Involvement Award
- Overall PACE (Personal and Chapter Enrichment) Programming Award
- Honorable Mention Commitment to Camping Award and Excellence in PR Award
Members are actively involved in numerous organizations on campus including Creighton Students Union, Summer Preview, Panhelenic Council Residence Life, The Creightonian, Omicron Delta Kappa, Alpha Kappa Psi, FLP, and many others. Gamma Phi also participates in intramural flag football, basketball, volleyball and soccer. It is hard to look around and not see a Gamma Phi contributing to the betterment of society and working to achieve the highest type of womanhood.
Gamma Phi Beta will prove to be an everlasting bond of sisterhood that exists beyond the four years at college. We provide an atmosphere where you can be yourself and develop true friendships that will last a lifetime because we are "Founded Upon A Rock".
