Pi Phi Epsilon is the only local, social sorority at Capital University, located in Bexley, Ohio, and is currently looking to extend to other campuses.
The purpose of Pi Phi Epsilon is to promote sisterhood and unity among its members, to foster friendship, to strive for higher ideals, to help others through service, to further social development and leadership, to create and maintain a sense of community with all Greek organizations, and, above all, to uphold the standards of Capital University.
First of all, I would like to support you in your decision to explore Greek Life. Recruitment can feel like an overwhelming, confusing process, but I encourage you to relax and enjoy every moment. When I first came to Capital, Greek Life was absolutely not something in which I was interested. I had preconceived notions of what sororities were like, and I had a difficult time seeing myself fitting into that stereotype. Even though I had already met and made friends with many members of various Greek Life organizations, it wasn’t until my best friend went through Informal Recruitment that I truly entertained the idea of joining a sorority. On a whim, I decided to register for Formal Recruitment the Fall Semester of my sophomore year. An hour before the recruitment process started, I called my best friend in a panic, saying “I can’t do this!” I was psyching myself out thinking of all the reasons why I couldn’t—all the reasons why I shouldn’t. When I got to Pi Phi’s first party, all of those reasons fell away. I relaxed and completely forgot about how much I was stressing myself out about recruitment. Instead I enjoyed time spent laughing like crazy. Pi Phi Epsilon completely shifted my inaccurate view of Greek Life. The ladies I now call my sisters are goofy. They are sweet. They are passionate about people. My sisters encourage me beyond measure, continually fill me with hope and joy, and consistently reaffirm all of the reasons I chose to join in the first place. My wish for you in all the hullabaloo of recruitment is that you find your home—wherever that may be. If that home is with Pi Phi, wonderful! If that home is with another organization, wonderful! If that home is outside of Greek Life, again, wonderful. No matter where your home, you always have a friend in Pi Phi.
Pi Phi Love,
Pi Phi Epsilon Sorority President
