Members of Gamma Phi Beta Sorority are proud of our rich and accomplished history, dating back to our founding on November 11, 1874, at Syracuse University in New York. During an era where women were discouraged from entering college because of their “insufficient brainpower” and “delicate health,” four friends came together to form an empowering group for women.


They bonded together to face adversity and to encourage one another’s intellectual growth. Now, more than 135 years later, we celebrate the vision and dedication of those women – and all who have come since then – who have built Gamma Phi Beta Sorority into one of the largest and most well-respected sororities in the world.
