Letter from our Chapter President

On behalf of the Gamma Pi Chapter, we would love to welcome you and thank you for taking the time to learn more about Gamma Phi Beta at Minnesota State University, Mankato. The Gamma Pi Chapter of Gamma Phi Beta has had a home here in Mankato since 1966. We have shared over 50 years of academic excellence, enduring friendships, leadership development, and the joys of sisterhood. Gamma Phi Beta is a home away from home for hundreds of women-- both current students and graduated members. The organization is not just a place of comfort and love that lasts a lifetime, but also offers academic and personal development support.  

  

As Gamma Phi Beta women we strive to uphold the highest type of womanhood, just as our founders did in 1874. We prioritize academic achievement and personal development.  We value the individual worth of each member. We encourage our members to build mentally and physically strong girls through our partnership with Girls on the Run. Most of all, we are loyal to one another and our values as a Gamma Phi Beta woman. Throughout our time in Gamma Phi Beta, we have given back to the community, grown as leaders in the Greek community, and found our best friends. None of this would have been possible without the support, love, and guidance from each individual sister.  

  

I am so honored to represent an incredibly dedicated and genuine group of strong women as their Chapter President. Ever since meeting the amazing ladies of Gamma Pi Chapter of Gamma Phi Beta, I have felt such an endless amount of love and support. I was welcomed as my true authentic self into a sisterhood that is my home away from home. Our relationships with one another and life long bonds of sisterhood is what sets us apart. We have worked hard to create a space that encourages all sisters to flourish both on and off-campus.  

  

Potential members, Alumnae, and fellow sisters, I invite you to explore the website and discover what this sisterhood means to each of us. I hope you find just as much joy in this organization as we do. Please feel free to contact me with any questions or concerns. Gamma Phi Beta is always here for you. 

  

In IIKE, 

Molly Nhean 

Chapter President 

 

Recruitment

Dear Potential New Members,

My name is McKenzie and I am Gamma Phi Beta’s Membership Vice President. I will be at every recruitment event to help guide you along the process.

 

Joining Gamma Phi Beta was the best thing that has happened to me. When I started college, I was super overwhelmed and I was worried about making friends and getting involved outside of school. Gamma Phi gave me so much more than friends; I found a group of strong women who inspire me every day and are always there for me.

 

Greek life at MSU provides a home away from home, and I have met the most amazing people throughout the community. Gamma Phi Beta has excellent leadership opportunities and areas to grow as a person.

 

The sisterhood of Gamma Phi is so excited to meet you!

 

In IIKE,

McKenzie

Philanthropy

At Convention 2012, Gamma Phi Beta announced its newest philanthropic partner – Girls on the Run. A volunteer-led program, Girls on the Run weaves training for a 5K run with fun, experience-based lessons that improve self-awareness, build a collection of positive experiences and inspire life-changing confidence through accomplishment. The organization’s programming inspires self-respect and healthy lifestyles in girls, and their core curriculum addresses many aspects of girls’ development. 

Philanthropic Mission: To provide experiences and resources that build spiritual, mental and social resiliency in girls.

Philanthropic Vision: We envision a community in which every girl and woman has the resiliency necessary to advance her own life and the lives of others.

Philanthropic Focus: Building Strong Girls

As our creed suggests, Gamma Phi Beta has a long history of outstanding philanthropic and community service. Although not founded as a philanthropic organization, giving back to the community is an important part of our chapter. As an organization committed to women, we envision a community in which every girl and woman has the resiliency necessary to advance her own life and the lives of others. Our philanthropic activities aim to provide experiences and resources that build spiritual, mental and social resiliency. In addition to our local and international philanthropies, we spend many hours volunteering at numerous organizations within the Mankato community.
