Pi Beta Phi

Since the founding of Pi Beta Phi at Vanderbilt in 1940, our sisters have been extremely involved all over campus. Pi Phi’s lead and participate in organizations like VUcept, VSG, Vandy athletics, Tongue N’ Cheek, and AKPsi, just to name a few! Our members love coming together for sisterhood events throughout the semester such as trips to TITLE Kickboxing, tie-dying shirts outside in our huge backyard, and hosting the much loved Pi Burger Phry. We also love celebrating with our sisters at date parties throughout the semester such as our formal Beaux and Arrows and G.I. Pi Phi.

Pi Phi’s also take great pride in our core values of philanthropic service to others. We support literacy through our national initiative, Lead. Read. Achieve. In addition over half of our members are involved in The After School Program (TAP), which was founded by one of our very own sisters. Our sisters love tutoring kids in reading every week, and we have the kids over to the house for a Play Day every semester. This year our chapter was one of three in the nation to receive a grant from The Pi Beta Phi Foundation to donate 20,000 books to schools in the Nashville area. We also love supporting the Vanderbilt Bill Wilkerson Center, which as a result of our donations was able to build the Pi Beta Phi Rehabilitation Wing to help those suffering from auditory and speech-language complications.

We are proud to have some of the most genuine and personable girls on campus who share the values of lifelong commitment and sisterhood. As a chapter we are extremely close and relay on the support and love of our sisters to make Vanderbilt the amazing experience that it is! We are so excited to welcome new members to our wonderful chapter and show them the true meaning of sisterhood!
