24 Years of Memories
Phi Beta Chi is a national sorority that was founded on March 26, 1978 at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champagne. Since its initial founding, Phi Beta Chi has expanded across the nation and holds chapters at several universities. Phi Beta Chi Iota Chapter was founded at Iowa State University on March 5, 1994.
Phi Beta Chi is a social sorority that was founded on Lutheran heritage and the following three principles: Church, Chapter and Community. These fundamentals are reflected in Phi Beta Chi's creed and exercised by its members on a daily basis. The chapter was established to support women socially, spiritually and academically throughout their collegiate years and the rest of their lives.
Phi Beta Chi offers opportunities for spiritual and personal growth. Members are provided a supportive environment that they can feel comfortable in. Although our chapter is founded on Lutheran heritage, members are not required to practice a certain religion.
