Pi Phi Epsilon, founded in 1963, 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.
I would love to support you in your decision to explore Greek Life. I know firsthand that recruitment can feel overwhelming and very confusing. I encourage you to relax, be yourself and enjoy every moment! When I imagined my college years, Greek life was the farthest thing from my mind. 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 I heard of all the great things Greek ladies were doing on campus that I decided to give it a shot. On a whim, I decided to attend a spring recruitment event. I worked with The Ronald McDonald house as well as TWLOHA during High School, and hearing that they were Pi Phi’s philanthropies helped me decide to attend. An hour before the recruitment event, I started to get really nervous and felt I wouldn’t fit in- I considered just not going. I never had strong female friendships through High School, so walking in to Pi Phi’s first party felt alien. However, within 5 minutes I was embraced by a group of women who made everything just feel natural. Somewhere along the way, laughing with all of them made those doubts fall away. I relaxed and honestly forgot that this was a “sorority” thing. I was just hanging out with a group of funny, quirky girls. The time flew by and in just an hour Pi Phi Epsilon completely shifted my inaccurate view of Greek Life. The ladies I now call my sisters are unique. They are sweet. They are passionate about their community and roll up their sleeves when help is needed. I truly admire each of them. My sisters are my strongest support system on campus and they often believe in me more than I believe in myself. The friendships and networks I’ve built will be life-long. My wish for you, is that in all the chaos that recruitment brings, you find your home. Wherever that may be! (Greek Life, or not) The sisters of Pi Phi will be here to support and encourage you in any way we can.
You always have a friend in Pi Phi,
