ABOUT ETA XI
Gamma Phi Beta is one of the 10 oldest women's organizations in North America and the first to be called a "sorority".
Our chapter, Eta Xi, was founded in the fall of 2015 on the University of Florida campus. Eta Xi is young, motivated, and ready to create the foundation for future student leaders. Like the waxing moon, you can expect continued growth as the Eta Xi Chapter of Gamma Phi Beta leaves its mark on the Gator Nation.
"To inspire the highest type of womanhood."
Founded on a rock.
"Since the rock is the firmest and most enduring substance, able to withstand the ravages of time, and offering the strongest protection, it seemed fitting that Gamma Phi Beta should be thus founded."
- Founder E. Adeline Curtis, 1874
Our mission is to build confident women of character who celebrate sisterhood and make a difference in the world around us. Through the promotion of lifelong commitment, intellectual and personal growth, and service to humanity. We foster enduring friendships and advocate ethical behavior, respect, authenticity, accountability, and integrity. We aspire for excellence in all that we do.
Gamma Phi Beta from the past has given a heritage that makes a fuller life. Gamma Phi Beta in the present bids us to strive for lasting values and ideals. Gamma Phi Beta in the days to come will prove that fundamentals can endure.Therefore we shall embody our lives the truths that make for finer womanhood. Once more we pledge a loyalty that means adherence to all true and noble things; a learning that enriches all our days with magic gold that is forever ours; a labor that each hour will glorify the simple, common task, the common cause; a love that will be strong and great enough to encompass and to pity all the world.
