Chapter History

The Founders of the Phi Mu - Rho Beta chapter at the University of Michigan-Dearborn include Celeste Andreu, Amy Bowen, Anne Cooper, Kathy Danyo, Carolyn Free, Lisa Lamburt, Maryann Pierce, and Lisa Withrow.

On April 10th, 1987, at the end of a Greek Week event, Maryann Pierce, Carolyn Free, and Amy Bowen met and decided to join forces to create University of Michigan-Dearborn's first sorority.

During the summer of 1987, meetings were held amongst the girls. The founding members were all in attendance. Kappa Gamma Beta was decided as the local sorority name. Kappa Gamma Beta received AD HOC status on September 1st,1987. Official Rush was held September 14th through September 18th, 1987 and Kappa Gamma Beta was granted full club status on October 13th, 1987.

On December 3rd, 1989, Kappa Gamma Beta was transformed into Phi Mu!
