Why Join Phi Mu
Maybe you have it all figured out, maybe not. In either case you'll need friends to help you along the way. Girlfriends. Sisters. Friends committed to you through a lifetime of ups and downs. Friends who'll help you grow as a person and as a leader. Friends who'll be there when you realize that you really don't have it all figured out. Friends who'll need you to be there for them, too. You know the type. They are the girlfriends who demonstrate that BFF sort of connection with you. They are there to build you up and to be by your side as you build up others. They have a special sort of energy about them. They are vibrant. And they're looking forward to friending you at Phi Mu.
Four Reasons YOU should be a Phi Mu:
- To Make Friends
- To Be The Best You
- For An Opportunity To Lead
- Because You Like To Help Others
Reasons YOU should be a Phi Mu:
To Make Friends: You’ve made friends before and you’ll make new ones here. These new friendships will prove to be some of the most valued relationships of your life and some of the best connections you’ll make toward your future. Phi Mu offers lifetime friendship among women who will become like sisters to you. We pursue a bright future together. From your first days as a Phi Mu in our Big Sis/Little Sis program through the years after college as part of an alumnae chapter in the city where you work and live – we’ll remain connected just as tens of thousands of other Phi Mu women have for over 150 years.
With collegiate chapters on nearly 120 campuses and hundreds of alumnae chapters for members after college, you’re likely to continue making Phi Mu friends for the rest of your life, wherever you go.
To Be the Best You: Whoever said that there is no place like home must not have been a Phi Mu. We’ll be a home away from home during your college years. The Phi Mu house provides a places to stay where a strong value system is established among young women with high ideals. Like at home, we’ve developed traditions that we enjoy in a socially responsible manner.
Our accountability programs ensure consistent and specific “right behaviors” including a strong anti-hazing policy and chapter-led programs relating to social issues. Then, as you prepare to leave the campus and pursue your future, our Senior Experience program is designed specifically to ease your transition to the professional world, the pursuit of an advanced degree, running a household or simply getting started on your own. We’re never far away. You’re our sister. You remain our friend.
For an Opportunity to Lead: It’s amazing what friends can do to change the world in which they live. In 1852, three young ladies dreamed of creating a place where women could share friendship, build one another up, serve their community, and get the most of their collegiate experience. These friends created our sorority. And, through their commitment to one another and the development of other leaders along the way, it’s lasted well beyond their lifetimes. You can be part of our continuing tradition and, along the way, develop the skills necessary to make your own dreams come true.
As a matter of fact, there are several leadership opportunities in Phi Mu. It’s a chance to put your skills to work with others. We have opportunities for members to run on the executive council, be on committees or organize and direct committees themselves. The skills members learn are transferable into your community, home and professional lives from here on out.
Because You Like to Help Others: You've learned life lessons and classroom lessons and want to build on those toward your goals. You've been loved and cared for so now you want to give back. Phi Mu provides a venue through which women like you can contribute to society and make a difference in Bowling Green. We have a long tradition of charitable and service efforts. And, more than simply promoting the idea of volunteerism, we enable your desire to lend a helping hand.
Phi Mu at WKU helps raise and contribute over $6,000 annually to Children's Miracle Network Hospitals and gives hundreds of hours of community service hours in Bowling Green.
