Chapter History

In 1995, Rose-Hulman first began admitting women and on May 2, 1996, the Gamma Pi chapter was founded at Rose-Hulman. The chapter lived on 6th Street across from Fiji before moving into the House on campus and then settling down in Skinner Hall. The chapter started off very small, as one of the two sororities on campus. Many things that were started in the chapter's first few years, such as Teeter-Totter-a-Thon, are still part of our philanthropy events. Some of the chapter's other activities include Homecoming events, chapter retreats, trips to St. Jude Children's Research Hospital in Memphis, TN, formal, socials, and everyday opportunities for sister bonding! In recent years, our chapter has celebrated having a sister named as a second runner up for the Sarah Ida Shaw award, which celebrates an outstanding sister. The chapter has grown so much since its foundation while continuing to develop the sisterhood our charter class created.
