Phi Mu prides itself on strong sisterhood and a longstanding tradition. The differences members possess as individuals are retained and complimented in Phi Mu.
Phi Mu was founded at Wesleyan College in Macon, Georgia on January 4, 1852. Phi Mu was originally founded as the Philomathean Society by three young women, Mary, Mary, and Martha. For several years around the turn of the century, there were discussions about becoming a national organization, and in 1900 they adopted the Greek name, Phi Mu, which symbolized the Society's secret motto. In 1903 the national charter was received by the state of Georgia, and the original membership became the first chapter of Phi Mu. The open motto for Phi Mu is "Les Soeurs Fideles." The Alpha Alpha chapter of Phi Mu was founded as the first sorority at the University of Georgia on April 28, 1921.
The sisters of Phi Mu enjoy each other's company and strengthen their sisterhood through their commitment to enhancing the community. Local alumnae support members in their philanthropic endeavors in the community. Phi Mu's philanthropy is the Children's Miracle Network. To benefit the Children's Miracle Network, Phi Mu hosts a 5K for The Kids, Meal on the Lawn, and a Jail and Bail for ugaMIRACLE. The members of Phi Mu are proud to be the chapter in the southeast that has raised the most money for their philanthropy and the second largest amount of money nationally. When you visit Phi Mu, you will experience the sisterhood and constant support Phi Mus offer each other in academic, social and philanthropic arenas.
We look forward to sharing our sisterhood with you and wish you the best of luck in Recruitment.
