Gamma Phi's history
Gamma Phi Beta Sorority was founded on November 11, 1874 at Syracuse University in New York by four outstanding women: Helen M. Dodge, Frances E. Haven, E. Adeline Curtis, and Mary A. Bingham. Gamma Phi is one of the 10 oldest woman's organizations in North America and was the first to be called a "sorority." For more than 140 years, Gamma Phi Beta has been dedicated to continuing the vision of our Founders. Members of the Sorority are committed to our sisterhood and believe deeply in our philanthropic mission, vision and focus. Together, we strive to promote lifelong commitment, intellectual and personal growth, and service to humanity. We as Gamma Phi's believe in fostering friendships that are true and constant. We advocate for ethical behavior, respect, authenticity, accountability and integrity and aspire to excellence in everything we do.
