The Panhellenic Council at Oklahoma City University has accepted Phi Mu as a new fraternity chapter to open August 2013.
Phi Mu will be the fourth National Panhellenic Conference (NPC) women’s fraternity to establish a chapter at OCU. The other three chapters are Alpha Chi Omega, Alpha Phi and Gamma Phi Beta.
Phi Mu is a vibrant, values-based organization with 161 years of sisterhood. The organization has four values for membership — character building, leadership development, community service and sisterhood.
Phi Mu was founded on March 4, 1852, at Wesleyan College in Georgia. Phi Mu’s national philanthropy is the Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals. The organization has 117 collegiate chapters and more than 12,000 collegiate members.
Jessica Winkles, extension director for Phi Mu, will be at OCU today for a student recruitment event and to meet with the university’s Panhellenic Council to begin planning for the new colony.
The Panhellenic Council is a student organization and governing body for more than 300 active members of Alpha Chi Omega, Alpha Phi and Gamma Phi Beta. Panhellenic coordinates the formal sorority recruitment process and other student Greek life events.
