Gamma Phi Beta

Gamma Phi Beta is an international sorority that was founded in 1874 at Syracuse University. Gamma Phi Beta is one of the 10 oldest women's organizations in North America, and the the first to use the term "sorority," meaning sisterhood! Gamma Phi Beta's mission is to inspire the highest type of womanhood through our core values of love, labor, learning, and loyalty. The Epsilon Psi Chapter at UNC Asheville was established in 1992, and is one of more than 168 chartered collegiate chapters across North America. Gamma Phi Beta seeks to build confident women of character who celebrate sisterhood and make a difference in the world. Through Gamma Phi Beta's philanthropic work with Girls on the Run, these women aim to build strong girls and act as a positive force in our local community.
