About Beta Sigma Phi
Beta Sigma Phi is a non-academic sorority based on the tenets of life, learning, and friendship. Established during the Great Depression in 1931, this organization served as a way of connecting women during a very difficult time via social, cultural and educational events.
Now, 75 years later, Beta Sigma Phi is the world’s largest Greek letter women’s organization. Members are from various age groups and educational backgrounds. This facilitates a sisterhood in which all members can learn from one another. An honorary member of the sorority was current New York State Senator and Democratic Presidential Candidate, Hillary Rodham Clinton.
