"Deciding if I wanted to go through recruitment and join this community was a hard decision for me as I didn’t really think I truly belonged in a sorority. However, going through recruitment I was always excited to come back to Pi Phi. All the women were very welcoming and all had different and unique passions, a lot of which related to some of mine. As I kept coming back I found little things that reminded me of home, like 10K that reminded me of my big basement couch at home where my family and I always had movie nights. Even after recruitment, there was that voice in the back of my head questioning if I made the right decision. But that voice was quickly turned off as I started walking to chapter every Monday freshman year with Qwynn and slept over in Erin’s dorm on a weekend and realized that I was right where I needed to be. Pi phi felt like home."

"I love living in the house. It has given me so many great opportunities to get to know my sisters. It is very true that you only get a chance to live with 60 of your friends all together once in your life, so you have to soak it up! There are always people willing to study, watch movies, or go get food (the last one is the most popular). I have had some of the best times of my life getting to live in my sorority house. It will be something I never forget!"

"4 years ago I never realized how much one organization could impact my life! Even with my sister being a pi phi while I was going through recruitment I kept an open mind about my choice of sorority bc my sister and I are different people. But soon after my first conversation at here I became aware of why taylor chose pi phi. As shy as I was going into recruitment, I never felt nervous in pi phi. Every conversation I had was genuine and they really wanted to get to know me. I was able to talk about thinks I was passionate about. I chose pi phi because I felt like I could be myself, and over the past four years I’ve seen people feel the same way, and that as allowed me to meet some of the most amazing women"

“I love Pi Phi because of our sisterhood. I would do anything for my girlies and I know they are there for me too. I would not have stayed at ISU if it wasn't for Pi Phi!! We truly believe in living our values and building each other up. The successes of the women around me inspires me to work harder.”

"The minute I got on the zoom calls during recruitment, I knew that Pi Phi was exactly what I was looking for. the women I have met are uplifting and so authentic. They provide me with the ability to be even more myself and I am so glad that I have found these people who make me so happy!!

"At the beginning of Yell Like Hell, I didn't know many people in Pi Phi. But, one day I was in the back and I heard someone talk about how hungry they were. I was thinking the exact same thing and she was talking about how good Jimmy Johns sounded. I turned around said "oh my god that sounds SO good right now." She asked if I wanted to go with her after practice and I thought sure, why not! She then proceeded to dab (something I still do and everyone hates me for it). I knew I liked this girl. We went to Jimmy Johns and it was the most fun night I had in a while. We hung out more during our sisterhood at the Apple Orchard and we are now the best of friends. Her name is Courtney Tompkins and I can't imagine my life without my Jimmy Johns loving, dabbing sister."

"Going into recruitment I had to idea what to expect. The first time I walked into Pi Phi I immediately felt at home. All of the conversations I had during recruitment week were so meaningful and authentic. I could truly tell that all of the women I talked to had such a strong connection with one another and I knew that was something I wanted. Joining Pi Phi has been one of the best decisions I have ever made as I have already made so many close friendships that I know will last a lifetime. I’m so incredibly grateful to be apart of this sisterhood and I cannot wait for the years to come!"
