About Our Chapter
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.
A LETTER FROM OUR PRESIDENT
To say that Pi Beta Phi has been the best experience of my college career is an understatement. The sincere friends I have made, and the opportunities it has given me have been life changing. Before I went through formal recruitment, I thought I knew exactly what sorority life would be like. What I didn’t know was that it’d exceed all of my expectations. Ever since Bid Day when I ran home, I knew I always would have a friend in Pi Phi. From my freshman year to now approaching my senior, I have created thousands of unforgettable moments that I’ll cherish the rest of my life.
Football games cheering on our Mighty Oregon, to Mom and Dad’s weekends showing parents around the chapter house and campus, to the sisterhoods at trampoline parks or having a movie night in our backyard. Our chapter has excelled in personal and intellectual growth, while keeping time to enjoy the perks of sisterhood.
Our members are involved in many different types of clubs and organizations, partaking in research projects, and leading in their academic programs. This past winter term, our chapter received a cumulative GPA of 3.51, an accomplishment no other sorority has accomplished at the University of Oregon. Oregon Alpha is truly unique because of all the individual members that make up the whole.
I have been proud to serve as Chapter President for the Oregon Alpha Chapter of Pi Beta Phi these last few months. Remember that no matter what chapter you join, you’ll always have a friend in Pi Beta Phi.
Pi Phi Love,
