Bid Day this year was a success! Our Executive Board and Recruitment Team spent so much time and effort into making this year the best recruitment we've ever had! We all got closer with one another in the house, and are so excited to welcome our new members into our wonderful home.
We had such a great time at this year's Pi Social fundraiser! Pi Social is an all-American themed philanthropy event that brings together the entire USC community. We play country music, have pie-eating contests, and our favorite part, pie our favorite Pi Phi's in the face! This year we raised over $6,000, which was donated to a local Los Angeles Reading to Kids Chapter that promotes literacy. We can't wait for next year!
We invited all of our members' parents to our house one weekend for a celebratory event for our members and their parents. It was a fun-filled weekend and we all enjoyed meeting one another's parents.
Invites are our favorite time of the year to get all dressed up, go out to dinner with your friends and dates and have a great time with the rest of Pi Phi! In the Fall semester, we have Luau and Inspo, and in the Spring, we have Beaux's and Arrows and Pi Phi My Tie. All of our girls look so beautiful at invite and we'll always hold onto the memories we make!
Pink Angel Week is definitely one of our favorites - all week, our new members are showered with gifts from their new bigs, receiving Pi Phi clothes, decorations and jewelry, along with their favorite snacks and treats! At the end of the week, the new member is given a costume that will match with the rest of her family, and she'll run into the house and find her big and the rest of her family somewhere in the house with a matching costume!
What's a Saturday in the Fall without a Gameday?! Gamedays are our favorite time of the year, and we love wearing our USC x Pi Phi football gear to the games and cheering on our team!
Exchanges are the best times for us to get creative with costumes and meet and become friends with members in other fraternities!
