New Member Experience
The Phi Program – This eight-week new member program enhances the Phi Mu Experience by helping new members transition into Fraternity membership. The online component includes an orientation, expectations of membership and journal prompts which help our new members begin their lifetime involvement in Phi Mu. The online modules in partnership with Phi meetings provide new members with the framework for personal, academic, social and professional growth.
Do you want to know what it would be like after receiving a bid?
Once you accept a bid into the Zeta Lambda chapter of Phi Mu, you will immediately begin the "Phi Program". This is an 8 week program led by the Phi Director. In this program you will learn about the history of Phi Mu, our rituals and everything that makes up our sisterhood. There will also be 5 Phi Assistants who are there to assist the director and provide additional support for the new members.
As we do understand that college is a new experience in itself, we try to limit the overwhelming feelings that being apart of an organization can also bring on. As a new member you will have decreased study hours, philanthropy hours and attendance points to help with this transition.
You will also receive a big who you can get to know well, which is a really fun experience!
Towards the end of your phi program you will have a "phi retreat" which is led by the phi director and her assistants which provides an amazing bonding experience and is a time that all chapter members frequently look back on.
Overall, there are a lot of people to provide support for new members and assist with anything that a new member would need help with. This experience is an exciting and fun time full of getting to know over 100 active members in our chapter!!
