Academic Excellence is a top priority for Phi Mu. Phi Mu Foundation awards over $200,000 annually in graduate and undergraduate scholarships. In addition, each semester Phi Mu nationally recognizes members who strive for and achieve a 4.0 semester GPA with the presentation of a silver scholarship charm.
Chapters who receive the highest GPA are recognized each biennium at Phi Mu's national convention. Phi Mu Chapters are expected to exceed the all-women’s grade point average on their campus. Those who meet the challenge are recognized for their accomplishment in several ways, including coverage in our magazine.
Our Academic Excellence Chairman continuously comes up with fun incentives to motivate sisters. Additionally, at the end of every quarter there is an Academic Banquet held for sisters who have upheld a 3.5 and above grade point average. Sisters are constantly promoting academic excellence, motivating each other, and providing support and guidance at all times. Our house offers a study room in which sisters can study in the comfort of their own home and have easy access to our academic resources.
We have sisters pursuing a broad spectrum of majors and minors, from Biology to Computer Science and Design to Psychology. Many members of Phi Mu are on Dean’s list repeatedly, as well as members of honor societies at UW. We encourage and promote academic excellence to the highest standard. This past Fall 2018 Quarter, the Eta Beta Chapter had 69 members on the University of Washington's Dean List.
Phi Mu has won and placed in multiple Greek life events at the University of Washington! We are proud to have been the sorority with the highest participation in the 2017 All-Greek Study Slam. Most recently, we were awarded 3rd place in Alpha Sigma's Rose Queen Philanthropy, benefitting Seattle Childrens' Hospital Uncompensated Care Fund, in which our house raised over $1,000 in donations.
