How To Join

If you attend or will attend a school with a Gamma Phi Beta chapter:

Gamma Phi Beta collegiate chapters participate in a process called recruitment. Recruitment can look different campus to campus:

  • Fully Structured Recruitment: Your campus will organize a specific time and place for sororities to host recruitment events and you must register to participate. This is often called formal or primary recruitment. During recruitment, you will have the opportunity to meet all the sororities participating in recruitment. You will continue to visit fewer sororities each day until your final round. Recruitment culminates in a Bid Day, where all the sororities offer invitations to join their chapters simultaneously.
  • Partially Structured Recruitment: Your campus will work with its sororities to advertise their recruitment events that will be held around the same time as each other and you must register to participate. You may choose to visit the sororities that are of interest to you. Recruitment culminates in a bid day, where all the sororities offer bids simultaneously.
  • Continuous Recruitment or COB: Your campus’ sororities choose to hold recruitment events when and how often they see fit. You may or may not be required to register to attend sorority recruitment events. Sororities offer bids on a timeline that works for them.

Membership Eligibility Position Statement

Gamma Phi Beta is an organization that is rooted in fraternal values and is committed to the promotion of inclusion among our members. Any woman shall be eligible for membership, provided she is currently enrolled in a college or university where there is a collegiate chapter and she is not, nor has been, an initiated member of an existing National Panhellenic Conference fraternity/sorority. Gamma Phi Beta seeks individuals for membership who aspire to live our Core Values of Love, Labor, Learning and Loyalty and want to achieve individual worth, intellectual growth, service to humanity and lifetime commitment to our sisterhood.

In an effort to give meaning to the concept of an “all-women” sorority and to give guidance to those making decisions about eligibility for membership, the word “woman” should be interpreted as anyone who identifies as a woman.
