involvement: As we strive to inspire the highest type of womanhood within our chapter, our dedication and participation is seen on campus and in the Gainesville community. From representing the University of Florida through Campus Diplomats to guiding the student body through Student Government, our sisters continue to lead by example. We have sisters serving in executive positions in March of Dimes and Order of Omega and sisters helping make miracles with Dance Marathon. Community involvement is also something we highly value in Gamma Phi Beta, with sisters volunteering at Shands, holding mentor positions in BUMP, working with MentorGNV and so much more! Through dedication and inspiration at Gamma Phi Beta, our sisters are able to create positive and long lasting impacts at the University of Florida.
#westicktogether because Gamma Phi Beta is a strong and resilient sisterhood that values love, labor, learning and loyalty. With the challenges that COVID-19 has presented this year, sisters of Gamma Phi Beta continuously turn to each other for support. From the moment you step through the doors of our home, the feeling of love and friendship surrounds you. As sisters, we laugh, smile, hug, dance, dream and cry together. Through the good and the bad, we have each other. Being able to depend on our sisters means everything to us, and we hope it will for you too.
To know the women of Gamma Phi Beta is to love them and when I reflect back upon the last three years of my collegiate experience, one of the most profound decisions I have made was becoming a member of Gamma Phi Beta here at the University of Florida. When I think of these amazing women that I am lucky enough to call my sisters, I am filled with nothing but love and gratitude. From the first day I walked through the doors of Gamma Phi Beta, I felt a sense of peace. That I was home and that I could be myself. That love and comfort has never ceased as I have continued my journey with these amazing women, at every high and low of life the women of Gamma Phi Beta have been my rock. To cheer me on and to be a strong foundation of support when I needed one. They have challenged me and see my potential long before I ever see it within myself and they are constantly striving to inspire the highest type of womanhood.
Leading these amazing women has been one of the greatest blessings of my life. The women of Gamma Phi Beta are constantly uplifting one another and acting out our core values of Love, Labor, Learning and Loyalty in all aspects of their own lives. This sisterhood of over 200 women that means so much to me, is one that is true & constant and does not waiver during hard times but sustains steadfastly through it all. Every conversation, every laugh and every act of kindness reminds me that I am lucky enough to be a part of this amazing sisterhood!
Choosing to be a part of the Panhellenic community has been one of the most rewarding experiences of my entire life, and my hope for you is that you find the same love and happiness that I have found in my home of the Eta Xi chapter of Gamma Phi Beta!
