Gamma Phi Beta is an international sorority founded on November 11th, 1874 in Syracuse, NY by four innovative women: Helen M. Dodge, Frances E. Haven, E. Adeline Curtis, and Mary A. Bingham. These women exemplified the core values that Gamma Phi Beta still holds high today: love, labor, learning, and loyalty.
Over 130 years later, we celebrate the vision and dedication of the women before us who have built Gamma Phi Beta into one of the largest and most respected sororities in the world. Today, Gamma Phi Beta is an international sorority that has welcomed over 150 collegiate chapters into the sisterhood and almost 300 alumnae chapters in the United States and Canada.
Gamma Phi Beta’s objective is to provide the highest type of womanhood through education, social life, and service to country and humanity.
