Welcome to Nu Chapter!
On November 11, 1874, Gamma Phi Beta sorority was founded by Helen M. Dodge, Frances E. Haven, E. Adeline Curtis and Mary A. Bingham at Syracuse University in New York. Nu Chapter at the University of Oregon was founded in 1908 as the first sorority on UO campus and the first available housing for women. As a member of Gamma Phi Beta, you get to be you – and become the best you possible! Our lifetime leadership and educational opportunities equip strong, intelligent women with the tools they need to achieve their greatest potential. Here at Nu Chapter, you develop meaningful, lasting friendships with other women who not only offer encouragement and inspiration, but will also always be by your side.
Bid Day 2017
After a week-long recruitment process, we were so excited to welcome our new members home! New members opened their bid cards on the Knight Library Lawn and ran home to the Gamma Phi Beta chapter house. They were greeted with music and excitement - and of course, their new sisters! We celebrated with a Flower Power theme, decorated by flower crowns, a photobooth and lots of food. New members had the opportunity to mingle with their new sisters and celebrate their arrival into a welcoming and inclusive sisterhood.
