Gamma Phi Get-Together
On September 24, 1875, Gamma Phi Beta’s four Founders first met “in the room kindly furnished by Professor Brown,” whose namesake we draw our colors of brown and light brown (mode). To honor the sisterhood experienced that day that has continued 145 years later, we invite you to our inaugural Gamma Phi Get-Together on September 24!
This annual event is a way to connect with sisters near and far and celebrate the sisterhood that connects Gamma Phi Betas. By coming together on the same day, we can show just how far our bond reaches – across collegiate chapters, distance, generations and more.
What is the Gamma Phi Get-Together?
The idea is simple – get with a sister or several and do something fun on September 24! Virtual events are the best way to connect while ensuring everyone’s health. If you decide to host an in-person event, we encourage you to host something outdoors, wear a mask, social distance and follow your state and local guidelines regarding in-person gatherings. As pairs or groups of sisters join together, let’s celebrate the connection we have as Gamma Phi Betas. See if your alumnae chapter is hosting an event or find an open event! This section will be updated as alumnae chapters submit events.
