Chapter Facts

Pi Beta Phi was founded locally in 1898 by several ambitious young women. Among these women was Grace Goodhue, later Grace Coolidge first lady of the United States. Our chapter house is home to seventeen chapter members who live and work together. We employ a chef and cleaning staff for the chapter members as well as a House Director who lives with and offers assistance to the women in the house. Our house is an historical landmark in the state of Vermont which means it has not Been changed since its construction.

 

Organization Facts

Pi Beta Phi Fraternity was founded at Monmouth College in Monmouth, Illinois, on April 28, 1867, as I.C. Sorosis. Pi Beta Phi was the first national secret college society of women to be modeled after the Greek-letter fraternities of men. During a time when few women were admitted to colleges and universities, Pi Beta Phi created a feeling of unity among pioneering women. Currently, Pi Phi has 130 chapters in the United States and Canada.
