What Does Pi Phi Mean to Me?
We love to invite members to tell others their story of what exactly Pi Phi means to them. We hope that this not only reminds our alumnae and friends that the spirit of Pi Phi is holding strong, but also invites Potential New Members to learn more about our sisterhood.
Frequently asked questions (FAQ)
How do I join a sorority?
Capital University offers formal recruitment during the fall semester and informal recruitment during the spring semester. During formal recruitment, the first night, you attend all four of the sororities' first parties. The second day, you will attend three parties. On the last day, you will attend two. The following day is Bid Day. Informal recruitment varies between each organization.
How will I know which sorority is right for me?
Each sorority has its own mission, creed and values that it lives by but overall, sororities strive to provide members with friendship, opportunities for personal growth, and fun. In order to choose a group that is right for you, you should participate in recruitment, where you’ll have the opportunity to meet all the sororities. As you go through recruitment, be sure to keep an open mind and be yourself
What are the benefits of joining Pi Phi Epsilon?
Pi Phi Epsilon offers each member countless opportunities to grow as a person and learn life skills that will be valuable throughout life. By joining Pi Phi or any other sorority, you will form lifelong friendships, have an endless support system, have several opportunities for friendship, give back to the community, and have fun!
Does everyone get a bid?
The purpose of the recruitment process is to allow you and the sororities to decide on the best fit. The reality is that not everybody who goes through recruitment finds a match, but every effort is made to provide opportunities for involvement to any woman who is interested in the sorority experience.
Are there any requirements to join a Greek Organization?
Yes, potential new members must have at least a 2.5 GPA and be in good standing with the University.
How much does it cost to be in a sorority?
Being in a sorority is like all other membership organization and does require a payment of dues. This money is used to fund the operations, social events, and programming for the organization. The costs of sorority membership varies from organization to organization. Currently, Pi Phi's dues are $200, and we offer payment plans and several fundraising opportunities.
What is hazing and does Pi Phi Epsilon haze?
Hazing means doing any act or coercing another, including the victim, to do any act of initiation into any student or other organization that causes or creates a substantial risk of causing mental or physical harm to any person (from Ohio Hazing Law). Pi Phi Epsilon, other Greek organizations on campus, and Capital University have zero tolerance for hazing, so don't worry about that!
Are there any requirements once I've joined an organization?
Yes, each Greek organization requires their members to complete a certain amount of community service. This differs from organization to organization. Pi Phi requires 15 hours of service per semester (don't worry! There are many opportunities within our sorority as well as around campus to complete this easily). Mandatory events differ from organization to organization.
What if my friend joins a different sorority than me?
It's okay! Each organization offers something different to each individual woman, so the sorority that is right for you may not be right for someone else. Being Greek doesn't mean you have to abandon your non-Greek friends, or your friends in different sororities. Just keep an open mind, choose the sorority whose values best match up with your own, and stay close with your friends from before you rushed.
