Lake Erie College Celebrates Installation of Gamma Phi Beta sorority
Forty-two women initiated into sorority
Lake Erie College is not only gaining recognition through newly added athletics, the successful equestrian and academic programs, but through the installations of Greek community organizations. In addition to Kappa Sigma and Tau Kappa Epsilon fraternities, the College officially installed Gamma Phi Beta sorority.
Gamma Phi Beta sorority became the first international sorority of the Eta Alpha Chater to colonze at Lake Erie College on Nov. 21. In 2008, a group of woman previously affiliated with the only local sorority (Delta Kappa Psi) joined the Gamma Phi Beta Lake Erie College colony to form the founding charter class. Forty-two women were initiated which included 33 collegians, three spring graduates and six alumnae initiates. The sorority now includes five collegiate chapters in the state of Ohio.
While being actively involved in all areas of campus life such as the Student Government Association (SGA), Student Activities Council (SAC), Greek Council, college athletics, Residence Life, Summer Orientation, Mortar Board and the Entrepreneurship Advisory Board (EAB), the sorority makes their presence known by valuing sisterhood, leadership and scholarship. They achieved the highest Greek organization G.P.A. of 3.275 and they pride themselves in promoting their founding values.
“I am thrilled to be initiated into the first international sorority at Lake Erie College. I feel like I am leaving a legacy and our names will be on that charter forever,” said junior Lake Erie student, Julia Niedzialek.
