Gamma Phi Beta
We build confident women of character who celebrate sisterhood and make a difference in the world around us. We are a sisterhood founded on a rock.
Gamma Phi Beta Sorority was founded on November 11, 1874 at Syracuse University by Helen M. Dodge, Mary A. Bingham, E. Adeline Curtis, and Francis E. Haven.
Our sorority was founded on the ideals of scholarship, sisterhood, and service, which Gamma Phi sisters still live by today. We are the first women's organization to call itself a sorority, the term that is now used for many Greek woman's organizations.
As an organization, we strive to build confident women of character who celebrate sisterhood and make a difference in the world around us. We aim to inspire and promote the highest type of womanhood.
Our chapter was founded on May 17th, 1902, making it the 10th chapter created within Gamma Phi Beta Sorority. Because of this, we are known as Kappa Chapter of ΓΦΒ. (Since Kappa, K, is the 10th letter in the Greek alphabet.)
Lovingly called "the Big White House," our beautiful chapter house can house 43 members. We have nine single rooms, twelve double rooms, one triple room, and two quad rooms. Each of our rooms are unique, which makes our house a home.
