Message from the Chapter President

Default Profile Hi I’m Taylor! I am so proud to lead this group of 150 welcoming and determined women. Our chapter creates an incredible support system, consistently motivating each other to excel. Our vision is to build confident women of character through our values of Love, Labor, Learning, and Loyalty. These values allow us to share a special bond that is unique to our sisterhood. Gamma Phi is one of the largest Panhellenic sororities with over 200,000 international members. Being a GPhi extends far beyond Storrs, CT and allows sisters to create lifelong friendships. Having a home at UConn is so special to our chapter, and the memories made at the pink door in Husky Village are everlasting. From sister dates spent on Horsebarn Hill to late-night study sessions in the library, there is always someone to spend your days with. Our philanthropy, Building Strong Girls, allows us to be supportive mentors for girls in our community, actively being a safe space for them to grow, and develop their skills.

President: Tori McNelis
