Gamma Phi Beta was founded on November 11th, 1874 at Syracuse University in New York by Helen M. Dodge, Frances E. Haven, Mary A. Bingham, and E. Adeline Curtis.
"founded upon a rock"
"Since the rock is the firmest and most enduring substance, able to withstand the ravages of time, and offering the strongest protection, it seemed fitting that Gamma Phi Beta should be thus founded." -E. Adeline Curtis
Love, Labor, Learning, and Loyalty are Gamma Phi Beta's four core values. Each value is unique in its own way, contributing to the path which leads to the highest type of womanhood.
