Involvement: The sisters of Gamma Phi Beta attend weekly Girl on the Run practices to encourage strength, positivity, and confidence, as well as to run or cheer on the girls running at the end of the year. One night a year, the sisters serve unlimited spaghetti to fundraise for Girls on the Run, and call it Spagammi! Gamma Phi Beta pairs up with Lambda Chi Alpha Fraternity to play games with watermelons on the Harrington Turf, often ending with smashed watermelons and everyone covered in fruit. Another day of the year, Gamma Phi Beta heads back to the Harrington Beach to host an all-day beach volleyball tournament open to all Greek Life Organizations, and any other UD Students to raise money for Girls on the Run.
Sisterhood: The sisterhood of Gamma Phi Beta is special because of their openness, cohesiveness, and focus on wellness. Through chapter meetings oriented toward team-bonding, interactive sisterhood events, and fireside chats, the sisters of Gamma Phi Beta have created an environment where everyone is approachable, and no one gets behind. “We truly are a family,” says Chapter President, Anna Sargent
Words from the Chapter President: "“Gamma Phi Beta gave me a home away from home and friends for life. From build-a-bear parties with our B+ hero Lilly, to stuffing our faces at Spagammi, to movie nights at the house, and many more days full of love, my sisters have given me so many great moments and fond memories that I will carry with me way past college.”
-Anna Sargent, Chapter President
HEAR IT FROM THE SISTERS:
"I chose Gamma Phi because it was where I felt most at home. This organization represents an inclusive group of women who allow me to be unapologetically myself and who inspire me on a daily basis to be the best version of myself. I have grown so much since joining this chapter and I can not imagine my college experience without it. Thank you Gamma Phi for helping me grow into the strong woman I am today. I love you all to the moon and back."
-Megan Reeves, Education Vice President
"GPHI has given me a home away from home and a constant circle of support. Whether for the heavy or the small stuff (like where I should get my eyebrows threaded), there's always a sister that'll have my back! It is such a great resource socially, emotionally, academically, and you really get out what you put in. My experience in the chapter has been so rewarding, especially philanthropy related events like Girls on the Run or UDance."
-Gabriella Cammarata, UDance Chapter Representative, Event Chair
