Creating a strong sisterhood is a top priority in our chapter. Sisterhood and friendship have been at the core of Pi Beta Phi since the first meeting of our 12 founders in 1867. Today, more than 300,000 women have worn the arrow over their hearts, creating a very long golden chain of friendship. The bonds of wine and silver blue bind us close together, bring out our leadership qualities, fine tune our strengths and motivate us to become the best versions of ourselves. The Pi Phi Blog is full of sisterhood stories. click here to check it out!
Abbey Quirk's Sisterhood Story
I’ve met so many amazing women and friends through Pi Phi, but I’m most grateful to Pi Phi for giving me my best friend. Katie and I first met when we were in the same Pi Chi group during recruitment. Between rounds of recruitment, we bonded over the fact that we live 15 minutes away from each other in New Jersey, but didn’t know each other before recruitment. When we both went Pi Phi totally by chance, I was ecstatic to already know one of my sisters. Katie’s the kindest, and most supportive person I’ve ever met. I know she is always there for me, putting a smile on my face, giving me a hug when I need one, or going on countless adventures with me. Whether it’s studying in the library or watching The Bachelor, Katie is my partner in crime and go to girl for everything. We’ve gone to every function and event together and have been inseparable since Bid Day. Katie’s my sister and my best friend and I can’t wait for us to be roommates on the hall next year!
Sarah Beth Barker's Sisterhood Story
I’ve told the story of how Nora and I became friends a million times and
I’ll tell it until the day I die. Nora and I met on bid day and were in the same friend group but we weren’t close. We both did book buddies at the same time and we became friends through the car rides back and forth to Six Mile Elementary School. By the time we came back for second semester of freshman year we were inseparable. Nora is everything I wanted in a best friend and more. She’s loyal, funny and loves me for me. Nora will randomly text me "Hey I love you. Thanks for being my best friend." I don’t think she knows how much that means to me. Nora truly is family. I got to spend a weekend with her family and friends in Boston last summer. She spent Easter with my family. Our parents are now friends and our littles are best friends. Because of Pi Phi 2 girls who grew up 1,000 miles from each other get to be best friends.
