Why Join Phi Mu

 Maybe you have it all figured out, maybe not. In either case you'll need friends to help you along the way. Girlfriends. Sisters. Friends committed to you through a lifetime of ups and downs. Friends who'll help you grow as a person and as a leader. Friends who'll be there when you realize that you really don't have it all figured out. Friends who'll need you to be there for them, too. You know the type. They are the girlfriends who demonstrate that BFF sort of connection with you. They are there to build you up and to be by your side as you build up others. They have a special sort of energy about them. They are vibrant. And they're looking forward to friending you at Phi Mu.

Four Reasons YOU should be a Phi Mu:

  • To Make Friends
  • To Be The Best You
  • For An Opportunity To Lead
  • Because You Like To Help Others

 

Individuals join Phi Mu for many reasons. It can be a home away from home, a pathway to campus involvement, a network to develop during college or later. The Phi Mu experience gives each member many opportunities to learn outside the classroom: to lead, to be an active member, to learn, to play, to share with and support others. Each member is an individual and our strong bond helps us grow both as individuals and as a group.

Phi Mu was founded in 1852, at the first college to award bachelor's degrees to women, by a group of women who valued education. We continue to strive for academic excellence through programming in each collegiate chapter and scholarship support from Phi Mu Foundation. Alumnae chapters also present educational programs because pursuit of knowledge is a lifelong journey.

Phi Mus serve others in so many ways. Money raised for Children's Miracle Network Hospitals, our national philanthropy, stays in the local communities where it is raised. All collegiate and alumnae chapters raise funds for or work on the annual CMNH Telethon, and many also volunteer at the CMNH-affiliated hospitals. Most chapters also support other charities, and members are encouraged to be involved in their communities.

Phi Mus are committed to excellence in everything we undertake in our careers, classrooms, organizations, and personal lives. By setting high standards for membership and high expectations of our chapters, Phi Mu encourages its members to do more and to do it well.

Phi Mus share many traditions -- our quatrefoil badge, Creed, ritual, symbols, songs, philanthropy, academic excellence -- even though we begin our Phi Mu careers on many college campuses. We have more in common with each other through our bond of sisterhood than we have differences. And so when we gather in new places surrounded by new friends, we know each other even though we just have met. Phi Mu is, indeed, for a lifetime.
