Phi Mu is truly a home away from home during the collegiate years. We build a support system to last a lifetime, encouraging each other to live a vibrant life and achieve our personal best. As the nation's second oldest sorority, Phi Mu is one of the largest networking organizations for women in the world.
Phi Mu even has two chapter officer positions dedicated to sisterhood development. The job of these women is to meet with members on an individual basis to enrich their Phi Mu experience and to incorporate personal interests into chapter programming. Sisterhood events include Bid Day, Big/Little Reveal Week, Sisterhood Retreat, as well as many optional events throughout the semester to strengthen our bond and have some fun!
On Bid Day, the last day of recruitment, Phi Mu receives its new members. This past year, new Phis were paired with a Phi Mu to enjoy a day of delicious food and dancing the day away at Jillian's in the Vista! This was a great opportunity for the new members to meet one another and be officially introduced to the chapter!
BIG/LITTLE REVEAL WEEK
Every Phi (new member) recieves an initiated sister as her "big" to mentor her, creating an everlasting bond. For a week, littles receive gifts from their unknown bigs. Accompanying each gift is a clue to help the little figure out the identity of her big. At the end of the week, an exciting ceremony is held during which big sisters reveal their identities to their little sisters.
Each year, the sisters of Phi Mu go on an overnight sisterhood retreat. This spring, we traveled to Savannah, GA and spent the weekend shopping, eating, and exploring! In the evening, we got to go on ghost tours! These retreats are important to the sisters of Lambda Theta because we truly cherish our special bond.
Throughout the year, the Sisterhood Development Chairs plan events for sisters to attend to continue to strengthen our bond and have some fun together! Some events this year included trips to HiWire Trampoline Park, attending a spinning class, pumpkin picking and many movie nights with popcorn and snacks for all of our sisters!
The friendships that are made through Phi Mu continue long past graduation from Carolina!
