Big Sis/Lil Sis

Big Sis / Lil' Sis Week:
This week is one of Phi Mu's proudest traditions! During this week, the Phi's receive their big sisters. It is a cherished tradition filled with fun and sentimental nights!

Family Christmas:
At the end of each fall semester, Phi Mu holds Family Christmas. It is a fun night complete with Christmas dinner, presents and Santa Claus! Our members hold this event for our staff and volunteers as a special thank you for all of their hard work and dedication.

Sister Circles:
For their first semester as a Phi Mu, each new member attends a weekly meeting with other new members that is led by an older member of our chapter. This serves as a way for new members to get to know others in their pledge class, as well as giving them an older member to look up to and come to for any questions. These meetings are very fun and take place in places like the refuge, restaurants, and ice cream shops.

Academics:
3.5 and Up Banquet:
We reward members that have received a 3.5 gpa or higher with a banquet. This is a great time for members to hang out together and celebrate their success.

Study Hall: Throughout the year we put on optional study halls in our home. We invite members to come and study together with the bonus of coffee and special snacks that are provided.

Chapter Church:
Sisters enjoy visiting different churches together throughout the semester.

Bid Day:
This day is surely one of our favorites. We get to welcome home our new members with open arms. Each new member will receive a bid day buddy. Bid day buddies keep the new member company throughout the day and help the new member with anything that is needed. This day is filled with fun, glitter, cupcakes, and roller skating, plus much more. Each year, we have a different theme. Past themes have included “A Phi Mu Fairytale”, “Welcome to This Crazy Beautiful Life”, and “Slide Home”.

Worship Nights and Prayers on the Porch:
These events are held at the house with speakers from local churches. During the event, there are refreshments, as well as different tables set up where attendees can participate in different activities, including a prayer station and other special activities that our members come up with themselves.
