Phi Beta Chi is a national sorority founded in 1978. Since that time we have grown to 10 chapters nationwide. The Kappa Chapter of Phi Beta Chi is a social sorority on the campus of the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. The Kappa Colony of Phi Beta Chi National Sorority was established at UNC on August 23, 1997 and the chapter was then established January 22, 2000. Since then, we have become an associate member of the Panhellenic Council, and our membership has grown from just a handful of sisters to over 70 active sisters and a large network of alumni all around the country.
Our sorority functions with the same traditions and practices of other sororities, including formals, semi formals, Big Sis/Little Sis, Alumnae events, and sisterhood events. Members of Phi Beta Chi are expected to uphold high academic, leadership, and service standards. We also promote the ideals of integrity, responsibility, and loyalty that the Greek community strives to achieve.
At our heart, we are a supportive sisterhood that celebrates the diversity that can be found within our members, and we encourage all of our sisters to strive for excellence in everything that they do - whether it be social, academic, philanthropic, or faith-based. While Phi Beta Chi was established based on the Lutheran heritage, the members of our sorority represent and celebrate the many faiths and walks of life.
