The Montana Alpha Chapter of Pi Beta Phi is one of 5 sororities on campus. It was installed at Montana State University during the week of September 1921 by Grand President Amy Burnham. Our Chapter Currently has 77 active members.
Our house was built in the 1960’s and has played a huge part in the development of Montana Alpha. It is the central hub for chapter meetings, formal and sisterhood activities. The Chapter House has 12 rooms and is the home of 46 collegians and mother. The formal living room still has the original furniture and holds a special place in the member’s hearts. The favorite antique of the chapter is the first ever washing machine used in the house; this holds an angel statue inside of it, which was from the house director.
The sisters of Pi Beta Phi are very committed to academics and we continue to set goals for academic performance. We have members in almost all honor societies including the order of omega, which is an all honor society with students that have a 3.5 GPA of higher. We encourage our members to practice good study habits by forming study groups and having sisters volunteer to be tutors for the more difficult subjects. During finals week, we have quiet hours to ensure that our women can get the most out of their studying.
One of the values that Pi Beta Phi up holds is sincere friendship. We practice that by holding sisterhood events regularly and spending quality time together both on and off campus. Some of the sisterhood events include:
Movie nights, cookie making, bowling, game nights, hikes, ice skating, etc.
