Phi Mu Rho Alpha, celebrating 29 years at IUPUI, is IUPUI's oldest chapter! Rho Alpha was chartered on April 7, 1989, and has been a key component of Greek life at IUPUI. With strong chapter traditions and alumnae bonds, Phi Mu offers members a truly unforgettable experience. Aside from collegiate chapter members, Phi Mu Rho Alpha is also extremely involved in the local Indianapolis Alumnae chapter.
Rho Alpha Chapter at Indiana University - Purdue University in 2006
Phi Mu has chapters across the United States and nearly 150,000 collegiate and alumnae members. The Fraternity is governed by a seven-member National Council that oversees teams of National and Area Officers, all of whom serve on a volunteer basis. In addition to 123 collegiate chapters, each based on a college or university campus, Phi Mu has 175 alumnae chapters in cities and towns across the nation. Membership in Phi Mu is for a lifetime, and the alumnae chapters provide networking, social and sisterhood activities for members of all ages. Both Collegiate and Alumnae Chapters have officers who handle chapter business and serve as liaisons between their chapters, Area and National Officers, and the National Headquarters.
The Phi Mu National Headquarters is in Peachtree City, Georgia, a suburb of Atlanta. Phi Mu Fraternity and Phi Mu Foundation co-own the building and both staffs work there. Fraternity staff members provide support to Collegiate and Alumnae Chapters and to Area and National Officers. The Carnation Collection, a boutique with Phi Mu merchandise, also is housed at the National Headquarters. Most staff members work in the National Headquarters each day, but members of the traveling team, including Chapter Consultants (recent college graduates) spend most of their time traveling to collegiate chapters to provide them with education, tools for successful operation, and support.
All Phi Mus have different college experiences, but we all share a Bond of Sisterhood. We all believe in the ideals of our Creed: Love, Honor, and Truth. Each Phi Mu who gives time as an active member, officer, or volunteer, contributes to the continued success of Phi Mu Fraternity.
