Describe a successful Sisterhood Event: During finals, we held an Acro-Yoga class taught by Kappa Eta alumna Andrea Chaisson-Kearny. The event was held at her yoga studio near campus, and allowed us to unwind and relax during finals prep and get closer with our sisters while doing so! We had a great turnout and tons of fun.

Describe a successful chapter-hosted Philanthropy Event: Our favorite Philanthropy event is our annual Dodge-A-Paluza event! This is a two category dodgeball tournament for all ages! The tournament is played throughout the day and we also have raffle items, food, games and SO much fun! We start the day with a visit from a CMN Hospitals Miracle family and finish it with Pie a Phi Mu where patrons can vote for their favorite Phi Mu by placing a ticket in the jar with their face on it, the sister with the most votes takes a pie in the face for the kids! The winner of each bracket of the tournament goes home with the coveted Golden Dodgeball! 

Popular Social Function Theme: Our most popular social theme is Pink & Black! We keep this social theme each year and it is always the most highly anticipated event by both chapter members and their dates alike. It is usually our first social of the school year and it’s so exciting seeing what costume ideas everyone comes up with!

Fun Fact: This year we won our Greek Songfest Competition for the first time in THIRTEEN YEARS!!! We were SO excited not only to win Songfest, but we also won first place in all of our Greek Week events!

Any other info you would like to include: We currently have the highest GPA of all Greek organizations on campus!
