Founded in 1852, Phi Mu Fraternity is a women’s organization which provides personal and academic development, service to others, commitment to excellence and lifelong friendships through a shared tradition. Phi Mu encourages members to achieve their personal best through leadership opportunities, strong female friendships, and the empowerment of women. Our three main values are: love, honor, and truth.
The Gamma Delta Chapter was installed on the American University campus on November 19, 1933. It became the sixty-first collegiate chapter of the national organization and the first national sorority at American University.
Phi Mu at American University is a vibrant organization that consists of strong and motivated women. Our sisters excel across campus in other student organizations and in their classes with consistent high ranks in GPA and achieving highest Panhellenic GPA in Fall 2020.
Phi Mu Fraternity at American University is highly committed to their national philanthropy, Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals (CMNH). CMNH raises funds for medical research and community awareness for 170 member hospitals across the US and Canada. Many Phi Mu sisters were positively affected either directly or indirectly by a CMNH hospital in their past, making this philanthropy a very special part of their sisterhood. Phi Mu loves to give back to the local branch and our partner hospital, Children’s National, right here in Washington DC.
Every spring semester, Phi Mu hosts their “Roar Off'' pageant where members of different AU student organizations compete in a talent style competition to raise the most money for CMNH hospitals. All of the proceeds raised are donated to the local Washington DC hospital, Children’s National. We also provide a multitude of other opportunities for sisters to get involved with community service events and organizations across the greater Washington DC metropolitan area throughout the school year and summer.
Dues for Phi Mu are approximately $771 for New Members’ first semester. After the new member semester, dues are $450 for the fall and $383 in the spring. (During virtual semesters these dues have been majorly discounted based on campus operating status)
It’s hard to put into words exactly what my time in Phi Mu has meant to me. However what is easy to say, is just how honored I am to be able to serve Phi Mu at American University as President. The women in this Chapter are some of the most amazing people I’ve had the honor of knowing. The relationships I’ve had thanks to Phi Mu are some of the most impactful throughout my life. I admire my sisters so much in their admirable pursuits between academics, service, and student involvement.
Phi Mu is a chapter full of passionate women that are unashamed to pursue working towards a better future. The fact that I have been trusted by such amazing individuals to lead them is not lost on me. Not only are they out in DC and the world doing amazing things, but at the same time, every day my sisters are there for me. In Phi Mu, I know there’s always going to be someone I can turn to.
