Eta Chapter's 130th Celebration! – April 28, 2024

Eta of Gamma Phi Beta at UC Berkeley was founded on April 29, 1894. So we decided to have an in-person shindig and a virtual party to celebrate this amazing chapter and its legacy of confident women of character! Here is a video that captures our history!

Girls On The Run – February 21, 2023

Gamma Phi Beta’s philanthropic partner is Girls on the Run, an organization that inspires girls of all abilities to recognize their individual strengths while building a sense of connection in a team setting. Volunteer coaches facilitate lessons that blend physical activity with life skill development to enable girls to adapt to whatever comes their way. At the end of the season, the team completes a 5K together, which provides a tangible sense of accomplishment and sets a confident mindset into motion. Nina Lambert, a GOTR volunteer who has served in many roles, tells us more about this wonderful organization and how Eta Chapter members can help.
