Dear Potential New Members,
I would like to welcome you to Pi Beta Phi formal Recruitment at the University of Oregon. As the Vice President of Membership for 2019, I am excited to meet you all and welcome you into our beautiful home.
You are about to experience the best four years of your life, and joining a sorority can further enhance your time here at the University of Oregon! We realize you may be nervous and unsure about what to expect about the formal recruitment process, but I promise there is no reason to be! It may seem like a weird and awkward process, but all of us here at the Oregon Alpha chapter have found our home and couldn’t be more happy that we went through recruitment to find it.
Pi Beta Phi's goal during recruitment is to make the process special, memorable, and most of all comfortable for the active members and those going through recruitment. It is a chance for us to get to know all of you and to let you know what our chapter is all about. We can't wait to show you how much fun we have together!
College is a world of new and interesting opportunities, especially to those leaving home for the first time. At the University of Oregon there are so many options, yet I encourage you to go through formal recruitment, despite any doubts or stereotypes you may have. Joining a sorority allows you to make strong connections along with having a place to feel comfortable on such a large campus.
Being a member of Pi Beta Phi has truly enriched my college experience. Going through recruitment myself, I felt unsure, extremely nervous, and any other awkward/terrifying emotion there is! I even ripped my tights during one day of recruitment! However, I can truthfully say I am so happy I went through recruitment for it brought some of the best individuals into my life.
Here at Pi Beta Phi we are extremely involved in the Fraternity and Sorority Life (FSL) community at the UO. We continually maintain some of the highest grades and community service hours in FSL. We are lucky to have an extremely diverse house complete with members involved in UO Dance Team, ASUO (UO Student Government), UO Club sports, Order of Omega, Debate Teams, Clark Honors College, study abroad programs, and much more.
Sorority life is truly a fulfilling experience and I look forward to meeting you in Fall 2019!
Pi Phi Love,
Greta Boyd, Vice President of Membership
