About Our Chapter

UC Berkeley Pi Beta Phi was founded on August 23, 1900! The California Beta chapter sits right in the heart of Piedmont Avenue. Cal Pi Phi prides itself on our values of sincere friendship and lifelong commitment. We are composed of girls from all over the globe with many diverse interests and passions. From regular sisterhood bonding events such as our fall Girls Night Out to putting on Cal's most popular greek life philanthropy event, Arrowbands- it is no question we are a prosperous chapter full of motivated women who know how to succeed and have a zest for life! Pi Beta Phi prepares our women to be better individuals in life beyond just four years. Our chapter is composed of about 200 women along with our lovely housemom Myka! 

A big congratulations to our graduating class of spring 2019!

We are so excited to call Myka our new House Mom! A graduate from OSU, Myka has found herself living a very daring and courageous life. Straight out of OSU, Myka moved to New York, where she found herself shortly moving to Hawaii. In Hawaii, Myka raised her children on The Big Island. After 26 years, an empty nest inspired Myka to adventure. Myka rented out an RV, traveled, and then sold the RV for a ticket to travel the world for two whole years. Within those two years, Myka explored the world roaming from east to west, finding herself in countless places such as Korea, Thailand, and Bali. Myka took a quick break in her travels when she received a phone call from her daughter who was expecting a baby. Being a grandmother did not stop Myka’s youthful energy. Myka commented: “I like not knowing and finding myself in places” She has found herself living on two islands in Thailand, spending lots of time in Italy visiting friends, riding motorcycling in Bali, DJing in Colorado, running businesses, owning businesses, teaching countless languages (French, Spanish, Italian, and Russian to name a few), and serving as a tango instructor in San Francisco. Name something Myka hasn’t done! It wasn’t until Myka met with her sister at IU Pi Phi that Myka was reminded of the warmth and greatness within the greek community. Her sister persuaded her to apply for the open ADPI house-mother position. No surprise, Myka received the position, and served as the ADPI house mom at IU for 5 years. From there, Myka decided she wanted to be in California, and found herself at home in our chapter, CA Beta. We are so excited to have Myka around!
