UC Berkeley Pi Beta Phi

A Letter From Our Vice President of Membership

We absolutely cannot wait to meet you lovely ladies! On behalf of my incredible Pi Beta Phi goddesses, let me be the first to welcome you to UC Berkeley and our gorgeous, fun-filled "Pi Phi" house in the heart of Greek Row. Your life is about to change in amazing ways as you fall in love with Cal, meet life long friends for the first time, and go through the exhilarating process of recruitment. I know it can be a bit nerve-wracking, but I promise a warm Southern-style welcome awaits you at 2325 Piedmont. We have been preparing for your arrival all year and are eager to show you some Pi Phi love as soon as you walk through our door. 

When we meet you in August, you will see why we are so proud to be Pi Phi sisters for life. Above all, we take great pride in celebrating the incredibly diverse personalities and contributions that each woman brings to the chapter. There is nothing "cookie cutter" about being a Pi Beta Phi, just the joy of respecting and nurturing each sister so she can make a difference at Cal and in the world. Our members are actively involved in a full range of campus activities, and they also love rapping Cal and Pi Phi around the world. Whether we have been serving the community or studying abroad, we all love the feeling of returning to the Pi Phi house to share our adventures with our sisters and Mama Kay, the ultimate house mother. It is truly our home away from home! 

So take a deep breath and rush into the fun of Cal sorority life. The bonds you will form with the girls you are about to meet will be unbreakable. Sisterhood, service, love, forever–that is what is means to be a Pi Beta Phi goddess in the Cal Beta chapter. See you soon!
Pi Phi Love,
Hannah Crane
