Philanthropies: Pi Beta Phi’s main philanthropy commitment is literacy. Their primary philanthropic partner is First Book, an organization committed to ending illiteracy by donating new books to schools and children who have none. Pi Phi also has several of their own philanthropies, including Champions are Readers, a program that Pi Phi chapters can implement in schools to encourage children to read; Arrowmont, a school in Gatlinburg, Tennessee, that focuses on arts education; Read Across America, usually “celebrated” on March 2nd, a day where students are encouraged to read; and Pi Beta Phi Foundation, which helps fund programming for the Fraternity, gives scholarships to Fraternity women, and helps alumnae in financial distress
Fun Fact: Not only does every new member receive a big sister, but she becomes part of a link family. Your link family is a group of girls from the same or similar majors who can help you when you need it. Link families can pass down all their old tests, files, quizzes and whatnot in addition to study help, and that’s what they're there for—academic support.
Activities: Messy Twister with Sigma Phi Epsilon, Pink Party, and Pi Phi Polar Plunge
Established at Mines: February 1, 1986

Fun Fact(s): At Sigma Kappa’s first house, zucchinis would randomly start to grow in the backyard; therefore the zucchini was named the chapter vegetable. Every woman that becomes a member will receive a “Big” through mutual selection. The woman’s Big is there for her in every aspect of life, especially academic. Because the selection process is mutual, these women usually become lifelong friends. The Sigma Kappa house was designed by an alumna, who opted to put more living space and a larger kitchen rather than a chapter room. The active women in the chapter all agree that this set up is perfect for our chapter. Sigma Kappa received the status of Chapter of the Year for the past calendar year.
