Pi Beta Phi

President's Message

Hi everyone! I’m Gabby Hayes and I am so excited that you have found yourself on this page and considering joining the Panhellenic community! From joining Pi Beta Phi I have not been shown love by just my own chapter but everyone from other chapters and I can’t wait for you all to feel it too!!!

At Pi Beta Phi, we pride ourselves on sisterhood and friendship! Our values of Integrity, Lifelong Commitment, Honor and Respect, Personal and Intellectual Growth, Philanthropic Service to others, and sincere friendship are exhibited throughout our house each day! Surrounding ourselves with our kind, intelligent, and driven sisters push us to be the best version of ourselves.


One aspect of particular focus within our chapter is our philanthropic initiatives. As a chapter, we donate to our national philanthropy organization Read>Lead> Achieve, which is committed to increasing children's literacy throughout the US. Throughout the school year, our chapter volunteers at local elementary schools in Santa Barbara through a program called "Champions Are Readers". Within this program, we work with students to improve their reading skills, boost their confidence in their academics, and allow them to be more acquainted with class work. We look forward to this project each year and love seeing our work in the classroom make a difference. 

In the winter we host Lip Sync for Literacy, an additional fundraiser for the Read, Lead, Achieve foundation to promote children's literacy. Lip Sync for Literacy is a dance competition in which each sorority and fraternity in all of UCSB greek life participates! The funds for donation are gathered through tickets that are sold to the event. Lip Sync for Literacy is one of the most highly anticipated events of the year–because what's better than busting out some moves for a good cause? Before the big night, there's a week of fundraisers including the interactive and hilarious "Pie a Pi Phi" on campus; we can't wait to do it again!

Pi Phi has given me connections to alumni and other collegiates across the nation! We offer so many ways to get involved within the community through service opportunities, leadership, and so much more. Many rising leaders in our chapter have gotten a chance to go to our headquarters in St. Louis and convention, which this year will be in Kentucky, who knows it may be you going! I have seen this chapter grow in so many ways between individuals and with our chapter winning chapter of the year for 2023-2024 at UCSB! 

I am honored and proud to represent this group of women as their Chapter President, and even more proud of the way our members continue to uphold our six core values deeply rooted in our history: Integrity, Lifelong Commitment, Philanthropic Service to Others, Personal and Intellectual Growth, Honor and Respect, and Sincere Friendship. When joining this organization, I had no grasp of the impact Pi Beta Phi has as an organization, nor the impact it would have on my life. I never anticipated how one simple decision at the beginning of my college career would prepare me for success within college and bring me so much happiness. 


Through Pi Phi, I have developed myself academically, grown as a leader, and learned the true meaning of sisterhood. Pi Phi has shaped me and I know that I would not be the woman I am today without the love, support, and encouragement from the women of this organization. 


I invite you to learn more about our Fraternity via our National Website:, and I encourage you to explore how you can make the most out of your collegiate experience as a UCSB Panhellenic woman. 


Pi Phi Love, 

Gabby Hayes
