Gamma Phi Beta

President's Message

Hi Everyone! 

 

My name is Emilee Casey, and I am proud and honored to serve as the Chapter President of the Delta Psi Chapter of Gamma Phi Beta for the 2024 year. 

 

I am currently a  Psychology and Brain Sciences major, who entered UCSB in the Fall of 2021. I decided to go through sorority recruitment with no intention of joining a house; As a first generation college student, I had no preconceived notion of what it was like to be in Greek life, and going through recruitment helped me see what being in the Panhellenic community was all about. Starting from the first round of recruitment, I knew I wanted to be a part of the Panhellenic community. I was embraced with open arms, having conversations with these amazing people that went deeper than the surface. With being a part of the Panhellenic community, and joining Gamma Phi Beta, I quickly found a place to call ‘home’ on this not-so-small campus. The individuals that I have been surrounded by in this siblinghood, are ones that fulfill Gamma Phi Beta’s mission statement everyday, as they inspire me to be the highest type of woman I can be. The incredible people of both the Panhellenic community and Gamma Phi have offered me a lifetime of love, empowerment, and support, and it has been nothing but an honor to lead them as president. Gamma Phi Beta has proved to be a place where I can effortlessly be myself, and let all of the true parts of my personality shine through, never once being scared to show the real me. Before serving as President, I was lucky enough to serve as our Presents and Parents Chairwoman, where I coordinated our annual Family Weekend and New Member ritual events within my chapter, as well as serving as Public Relations Vice President, which was my first time serving on my chapter's Executive Council before becoming President. I could not have taken on this challenging, yet rewarding, role as President without the support and empowerment of the members of Gamma Phi Beta and the entire Panhellenic community.

 

Gamma Phi Beta’s mission is to inspire the highest type of womanhood and our organization seeks to fulfill this mission through our four core values of love, labor, learning, and loyalty. While this diverse group of kind, brilliant, and incredible people all joined Gamma Phi Beta for different reasons, we are united by this common goal and bring our core values with us everywhere we go. The result is a wide variety of interests and strengths, all collaborating and working together to better ourselves, our sisterhood, and our community. This organization prides itself on building strong girls and creating confident women of character and this chapter is full of some of the strongest and most inspirational people I know.

Gamma Phi Beta’s philanthropy is Building Strong Girls. We achieve this by raising money for our philanthropic partner Girls on the Run, which is an amazing organization that hosts after-school programs for young girls, teaching them how to be confident and strong in a world that is constantly trying to tear them down. We raise money by hosting two large events throughout the year: Moonball, which is an exciting kickball tournament between organizations of the Greek Community, and Pancake Breakfast, an all-you-can-eat breakfast event opened to the entire UCSB and Isla Vista community. These events provide an opportunity to engage and make connections with the larger community, while also working to empower young girls across the country. 

 

This chapter has brought me friendships to brighten my darkest days, provided me with numerous networking and professional opportunities, and challenged me to grow into the person I am today. I’ve made so many memories in these past 3 years that I will cherish forever, and I know the people I’ve met through this organization will stand by me for life. Thank you for taking the time to learn about how much this organization means to me, and I invite you to learn more about us at our website ucsbgammaphibeta.org, and explore the benefits of being part of the UCSB Panhellenic community. 

 

Best,

 

Emilee Casey
