Hello and welcome to Pi Beta Phi ME Alpha!

I am so excited to meet and share the amazing aspect of going Greek, as well as what makes Pi Beta Phi at the University of Maine so special to me, and our members. 

To Potential New Members (PNMs) - When I was an incoming freshman at UMaine, I never thought I would go Greek, until one of my best friends from high school who was a member in Chi Omega encouraged me to go through recruitment. I did not know this then, but signing up for recruitment has quite possibly been one of the best things that has happened to me in my college career. Through formal recruitment I was able to meet and get to know so many people from all around the world, but ultimately ended up in a place that I can call home - Pi Beta Phi. This chapter is more than just a sorority, it is a courageous, ambitious, intelligent, and kind group of women who want the absolute best for you; I would never be the woman I am today without the support and encouragement of my sisters. 

The sisters of Pi Beta Phi cultivate leadership potential and are dedicated to contributing to the betterment of society by working with our community first hand - Through our philanthropy, Read>Lead>Achieve, we focus on helping our local youth with their literacy and education. Along with our philanthropy, we offer a multitude of leadership opportunities with a wide range of positions that allow for members to explore their interests and strengths. 
Academically, we value prioritizing school and support each other in our studies. The majors of our members range from nursing, education, business, psychology, biology, and so much more - No matter what, there’s always a sister that can give guidance collegiately.

Pi Beta Phi ME Alpha has given me lifelong friends and connections, astounding leadership opportunities, confidence, and substantially more. Here at Pi Phi, we take pride in being a unique group of women with different interests, but align with our core values and ideals. We hope you take the opportunity to learn more about Greek life and reach out about the sisterhood that is Pi Beta Phi! 

For parents of PNMs - I know the reputations and stigma surrounding Greek life, however I can assure you that Greek life at the University of Maine is far from that. This is a diverse and supportive group of individuals who contribute exceptionally on and off campus by offering their service and their positive presence on the community. Joining Greek life offers an abundance of connections that stem to more areas outside of your chapter, it is truly a remarkable experience seeing chapters work together to contribute to the betterment of our communities. If you have any questions about Greek life or our sisterhood, please do not hesitate to reach out to myself or the many sisters of Pi Phi. 

Pi Phi Love and All of Mine,
President Elizabeth Phillips
