A Letter From Our Vice President Of Recruitment:
Hi there and thank you for visiting Pi Beta Phi at Arizona State’s Website! My name is Peyton Tovey, and I am the very proud 2022 Vice President of Recruitment. It is an honor to serve alongside like-minded women who encourage, support and uplift each other and our members.
I am from Newbury Park, California, and moved away from my family to Arizona for the start of my college career. I am a junior studying at the Walter Cronkite School of Journalism and Mass Communication for a Bachelor’s Degree in Journalism with an emphasis in Public Relations and Marketing. Accompanying my major, I have a double minor in Political Science and Dance. Additionally, I am a very proud member of Barrett, the Honors College here at ASU.
Coming from out of state, I immediately missed the community I had at home. Being a product of COVID-19, I knew my experience would be slightly different than the rest. However, I was determined to put myself out there to create a support system like the one I had at home. Greek life is such an amazing way to find your niche of people that allow you to flourish into who you are meant to be. During the recruitment process, I realized that there is a home for everyone in our Panhellenic community. Each sorority and fraternity is so unique and is a place for anyone to grow.
From philanthropy round to preference, I knew Pi Phi was my home. I saw things in every person that I talked to in Pi Phi in myself. I found individuals who were wise, independent, strong and, of course, sparkled. These were the types of women who would push me to be the best version of myself not just in college, but for a lifetime. As a member now of two years, I can confidently say that I belong here. Pi Phi has broadened my horizons in more ways than I can express. It is my outlet, my best friends, my inspiration, my passion and my home. I strive to create a legacy inside of Pi Phi that will continue for years to come.
During the recruitment process our chapter, along with 15 others, strive to make each Potential New Member feel welcomed and excited to start their college career. The first round of recruitment is our “Open House” round. This year, this round will be held virtually through video submissions. This is how our chapter gets a feel of the community that wants to join a sorority for the given year. The second round is our “Philanthropy” round which is centered around service and our philanthropy that we hold close to our hearts. Pi Beta Phi proudly serves to support children’s literacy. This round highlights the why behind Pi Phi and we are able to share what and how we are able to give back to the community around us. The third round is our “Sisterhood” round where we can be ourselves and showcase our amazing sisterhood. This round is so special because of the foundational friendships the chapter has created for many of us. Our fourth and final round is our “Preference” round where we focus on our values and traditions. Our preference ceremony can be uplifting, empowering and emotional for our chapter and PNMs who experience it. We hold a special place in our hearts for our ceremony because we see values in so many PNMs that align with who we are as a chapter. After preference is Bid Day where each Potential New Member finds their forever home.
We hope Pi Phi can create an experience that you remember as you go into the recruitment process. Our chapter is dedicated to enhancing the college experience in creating friendships that last far beyond your college years. We strive to create the most inclusive environment possible that encourages each of our members personally and academically.
I would personally like to thank Ella Ransom for being the reason I went Pi Phi, Cameron Hunter for being my best friend and future maid of honor, Lauren Jeffress for leading this chapter by example, Taylor Loomis for being my sun and my mother who is letting me live on her legacy of being a Pi Phi. These people, along with 250 other women, make me blessed to serve the best.
Collectively as a chapter, we are ecstatic to start the recruitment process and meet each one of you. The link to register for formal fall recruitment will open on June 1, 2022. Go Greek and find your forever home at Arizona State University.
Pi Phi Love & Mine,
VP of Recruitment
