Message from the Chapter President

Default Intern Welcome to the CT Alpha chapter of Pi Beta Phi!

We are proudly the longest standing Panhellenic sorority on UConn’s campus - chartering 78 years ago! Throughout our history we have maintained our five significant values of integrity, lifelong commitment, honor and respect, personal and intellectual growth, philanthropic service to others, and sincere friendship. Our chapter is home to a diverse group of amazing women who strive for greatness in all they do.

Together we work to support children’s literacy in our local community and nationwide through our philanthropy, Read > Lead > Achieve. We believe every child that has the opportunity to be a reader and become a leader. We host philanthropy events during the school year such as Arrow Spike, a volleyball tournament where any organization can sign up and donate to our philanthropic efforts.

I remain in awe of the genuine sisterhood Pi Phi shares and the amazing accomplishments each sister achieves every day.

President: Ciara DeMott
