In a time where women were discouraged from entering college, four women from Syracuse University came together to form a society named Gamma Phi Beta. More than 130 years later, we celebrate the vision and dedication of those women and all that have come since then, who have built Gamma Phi Beta into one of the largest and most well-respected sororities in the country. Our chapter at George Mason was founded in April 28, 1990.
Helen M. Dodge, Frances E. Haven, E. Adeline Curtis and Mary A. Bingham were courageous women that could see beyond the limits of their time. They recognized the opportunity that a women's society presented, and aimed to establish one that would promote literary culture and social improvement among its members. Our core values are Love, Labor, Learning, and Loyalty; we hold these values close to our hearts and practice them in our everyday lives.
Our philanthropic mission is building strong girls and we strive to do that in the community and in our sorority daily.
