We build confident women of character who celebrate sisterhood and make a difference in the world around us.
To inspire the highest type of womanhood.
Each member of Gamma Phi Beta has taken an oath to uphold the highest standards of womanhood. As individuals, we all strive to live Gamma Phi Beta's Core Values, Love, Labor, Learning, and Loyalty, in our daily lives. Living our Core Values demonstrates to the outside world what it means to be a Gamma Phi Beta.
Love: This Core Value focuses on your individual worth and promotes personal development, self-empowerment, self-respect, good character, honesty, integrity, and self-image.
Labor: This Core Value focuses on service to humanity and promotes contributions to Gamma Phi Beta, the community, philanthropic endeavors, the National Panhellenic Conference, and local panhellenic activities and interests.
Learning: This Core Value focuses on intellectual growth and promotes lifelong learning, academic achievement, continued education, and professional development.
Loyalty: This Core Value focuses on lifetime commitment and promotes staying connected with the sorority by sharing your time, talent, and treasures as an alumna. The potential to connect and network with other outstanding members continues long after graduation.
Gamma Phi Beta from the past has given a heritage that makes a fuller life. Gamma Phi Beta in the present bids us strive for lasting values and ideals. Gamma Phi Beta in the days to come will prove that fundamentals can endure. Therefore we shall embody our lives the truths that make for finer womanhood.
Once more we pledge a loyalty that means adherence to all true and noble things; a learning that enriches all our days with magic gold that is forever ours; a labor that each hour will glorify the simple, common task, the common cause; a love that will be strong and great enough to encompass and to pity all the world.
Founded Upon a Rock
The sisters of the Eta Kappa chapter of Gamma Phi Beta are women focused around the motto Building Strong Girls! Gamma Phi Beta is passionate about our philanthropic focus because we know today's girls face more challenges than ever, making the need for a safe place with supportive mentors even greater. Girls need women in their lives who can help them develop the skills to succeed in life. Gamma Phi Betas are those women! Gamma Phi Beta supports this through our national philanthropic partner Girls on the Run and our local partner Girls Inc. We are so happy to be able to volunteer hands-on in the community with Girls Inc, and to support Girls on the Run with the other 180+ Gamma Phi Beta chapters.
**Our dues cover all chapter events, cosponsored events, and required attire. There are no additional fees for chapter activities. Members may choose to spend additional money to order Gamma Phi Beta attire.
