a letter from our 2024 president

I am Emmanuelle Fries, but everyone calls me Emma, and I am the 2024 Delta Eta Chapter President. I am honored to be able to share with you the immense pride I feel in calling the women of Gamma Phi Beta my sisters. I hope that through this letter you can catch a glimpse into our loving sisterhood, where over a hundred women have found their home away from home. 


I found Gamma Phi Beta my freshman year, as a new student from out of state. Immediately I was welcomed into an incredible sisterhood where I have met my best friends and made memories that I will treasure forever. Gamma Phi Beta has allowed me to grow immensely as a leader and as a person, and I know I would not be the person I am today without the support of the women that surround me. I know that Gamma Phi Beta is exactly where I belong, and this is affirmed with every meeting, event, and interaction that I have with my sisters. 


At the core of Gamma Phi Beta are four enduring values that guide us: Love, Labor, Learning, and Loyalty. Through these values, we inspire the highest type of womanhood as they are the foundation of our chapter, which we uphold everyday through our academic achievements and our true and constant support for one another. We are committed to upholding these principles through our philanthropic efforts with organizations such as Girls on the Run. Building Strong Girls is the motto that we use to capture the effect that we have on the young girls involved in the Girls on the Run program at the core of our philanthropy, but it is amazing to see how Gamma Phi Beta is building us up into strong women as we help others. I know that I myself feel like a much stronger member of my community because of Gamma Phi Beta, and I know others involved would say the same. 


We all joined Gamma Phi Beta for different reasons, and we all have different life goals and aspirations for when we leave Gamma Phi Beta. However, while we are here we share a love that unites us and allows us to share in this incredibly special experience. I am proud to say that I am a Gamma Phi Beta because it means that I am a part of a strong and accepting group of women. 


With love,

Emmanuelle (Emma) Fries
