After 1874, as additional Greek-letter chapters were added to the Gamma Phi Beta sisterhood (including Psi chapter in 1918), women became increasingly aware of the network of sisters that existed outside of their universities. Their experience as collegians shaped their identity and continued to foster their mission: to inspire the highest type of womanhood. At Convention in 1892, the concept of alumnae chapters was approved and the first alumnae chapter was installed.
Gamma Phi Beta women believe in the value of a lifetime commitment to the sisterhood. All of our alumnae chapters offer friendship, career contacts, a support network, leadership training, philanthropic projects and continuing sisterhood. The state of Oklahoma is home to four alumnae chapters: Oklahoma City Alumnae chapter, Norman Alumnae chapter, Stillwater Alumnae chapter and Tulsa Alumnae chapter.
The women of Psi chapter recognize the value and commitment of their alumnae members and would like to extend an open invitation to area alumnae to attend chapter events such as Homecoming, Chili Cook-Off, Founder’s Day and many more. Norman Alumnae chapter members can follow chapter events on the “Norman Alumnae Chapter – Gamma Phi Beta” Facebook page as well as the “Oklahoma Gamma Phi Beta” Facebook page and Twitter account (@ougphi).
Psi chapter at the University of Oklahoma is known for the strong ties it maintains with its members – no matter where life takes them. Collegians periodically send a newsletter to Psi alumnae to keep them up-to-date on the numerous accomplishments of its current chapter members. To request your copy of the Psi Sooners newsletter, please contact the chapter president.
