Oregon Alpha was established on October 29th, 1915 and was the eighth National Women's chapter at the University of Oregon. Oregon Alpha has since become a well-established organization in the Eugene community, has participated in many campus clubs and activities, and has been an active member in Fraternity and Sorority Life.
At the University of Oregon, Pi Beta Phi members have been living in the same house since 1915. The house was built solely for Pi Phi, and many generations have passed through the hallways. There are recent additions, such as the sun room, and new beautiful upholstery. The giant TV room in the basement is definitely one of our favorite spots, especially for Bachelor Mondays! The house holds 53 girls, and it is safe to say that it really feels like home when you have your sisters right down the hall. From late nights making food in the popcorn room to face masks and movies on the third floor, Oregon Alpha has countless traditions that members will remember for a lifetime.
Our lovely house mom Tracie has been with us since 2016, and we could not be happier to have her! She is Originally from Tacoma, Washington, and recently moved from Bozeman, Montana. Tracie's warm, kind spirit makes living in the house truly feel like being at home. Whatever we need, she provides to us with open arms.
Welcome to Pi Beta Phi!
I am overjoyed to show you a little about what being a Pi Beta Phi at the University of Oregon is all about. It was only three years ago that I was once wondering what my years at Oregon had in store for me. As an individual who did not think I was going through formal recruitment, I am so thankful I did. The experiences I have had so far exceeded any expectations I could have possibly imagined. As I am writing this letter to you, I am realizing joining Pi Beta Phi is the largest contributor to my everlasting, wonderful experiences.
Our calendar is overflowing with opportunities to be involved in everything that the University of Oregon and the city of Eugene have to offer. From football games to sisterhoods to philanthropies, Pi Phis are always making unforgettable memories! I am in constant awe of our sisters who go beyond and represent Pi Beta Phi in all areas of campus. We have members serving on student government, playing University and Club Sports, conducting undergraduate research for their department, performing as dancers, serving on Panhellenic, and joining an endless amount of clubs that allow them to grow their passions. There is a constant amount of support and genuine pride our members have for each other and Pi Beta Phi.
To say I am honored to serve as Chapter President for the Oregon Alpha Chapter of Pi Beta Phi is an understatement. The women of this chapter have changed my life in ways I could never explain, and I know that any woman who joins our family would walk away four years later feeling the same way.
Pi Phi Love and mine,
