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 attendence. Kappa Gamma Beta was decided as the local sorority name. Kappa Gamma Beta recieved AD HOC status on September 1,1987. Official Rush was held September 14-18, 1987.
Kappa Gamma Beta was granted full club status on October 13, 1987, and on December 3, 1989, Kappa Gamma Beta was transformed into Phi Mu!
Our Local Founder's Day is December 3rd and we celebrate each year by painting the rock outside of the University Center! In 2014, Rho Beta chapter celebrated 25 years of excellence at the University of Michigan-Dearborn. We look forward to many more years filled with love and sisterhood!
