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 women: you can find Phi Mu’s working on the Hill, involved in other AU student organizations, providing community service to the Washington DC community, or just enjoying each other’s company while hanging on campus or exploring the city.


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 either 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 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 $786 for new members and $454 in the fall and $408 in the spring for regular active members (as of Fall 2019).
