About Our Chapter
A Message From Our President 

Welcome to the DC Alpha Chapter of Pi Beta Phi! We hope you will take the time to look at our website and learn about our sisterhood, our service, and our accomplishments here at The George Washington University. Here in the heart of D.C., we have over 150 dedicated sisters who make up a vibrant, unique, and diverse community of women, who are leaders both inside and outside of Pi Beta Phi. Apart from their involvement and commitment to our chapter, our sisters are involved in organizations such as The Hatchet, Camp Kesem, Dance Marathon, student theater, club sports, TEDx, GW Women in Business, and Alternative Breaks! Our sisters also take advantage of our location in our nation’s capitol, interning at places such as the U.S. Congress, the Smithsonian, DC Public Schools, and at non-profit, consulting, and lobbying firms throughout the city.

One of the core aspects of our sisterhood is supporting our national philanthropy, Read > Lead > Achieve, which benefits children’s literacy. We participate in philanthropic activities all year long, from our annual philanthropy week, Arrowstrike, which culminates in a wiffle ball tournament on the National Mall, to tutoring children in DC through programs such as Reading Partners and Jumpstart.

The friendships made through Pi Phi provide a home away from home for our sisters, and a support system that can always be counted on. Our sisterhood is only made stronger through our use of our beautiful home, Strong Hall, where over 50 of our sisters live each year. The women of the DC Alpha chapter are truly and amazing group group of unique, talented, and empowered women, and I am so honored to represent them and call them my sisters. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to reach out to myself at dcalphacp@gmail.com, or any other member of our executive board!
