New Member Experience
The Phi Program – This eight-week new member program enhances the Phi Mu Experience by helping new members transition into Fraternity membership. The online component includes an orientation, expectations of membership and journal prompts which help our new members begin their lifetime involvement in Phi Mu. The online modules in partnership with Phi meetings provide new members with the framework for personal, academic, social and professional growth.
Letter From the Phi Director
My name is Mary, I am a sophomore, Family Studies major! I am the Phi Director (New Member Educator) for the Spring 2017 and Fall 2017 pledge classes. I have been passionate about getting this position ever since I was a new member and I am so excited to welcome our new members into the chapter and lead them through their time as Phis!
The Phi Program is an eight-week process where our new members are termed Phis and will learn about the history of Phi Mu, important information about our chapter, and will prepare themselves to be initiated members. During the Phi program, Phis can participate in philanthropies, social events, and will have many opportunities to become involved in our chapter. Some major events that are held during the Phi Program are Bid Day, Big/Little Reveal, and the Phi Retreat. During these eight weeks our Phi will make some of their favorite memories while being a Phi Mu.
As Phi Director my goal is to successfully transition our girls from being Phis to the life of an initiated, active member in the chapter. I hope to integrate them with actives, help them to form close bonds with their pledge class and get the fullest Phi Mu experience they can have right from the start of their time here in the chapter. I hope to provide them with opportunities for involvement in our chapter and the Greek Community as a whole, growth and understanding within Phi Mu and most importantly personal development. I have had the best experiences of my college career within Phi Mu and I hope to help our new Phis have just as amazing as a time in our chapter as I have!
