Campus Involvement


Hello members, families, alumni, & PNMs! I’m a senior Economics major and Pi Phi UCSB’s Vice President of Community Relations (VPCR). In my role, I oversee Pi Phi’s marketing and public relations, community outreach, philanthropic efforts, and external relations with families, alumni, and the University. I work alongside a talented Community Relations team consisting of the Director of Service and Philanthropy and the Director of PR and Marketing. 

Each year we strive to expand and diversify our philanthropic efforts, community involvement, and community outreach. We take pride in the many clubs, organizations, and activities our members are involved in–whether it be undergraduate research internships on campus, advocating for social justice, or competing for NCAA sports teams, the list never seems to end! 

Engaging in philanthropic efforts is the backbone of our organization. Read>Lead>Achieve is our national philanthropy dedicated to supporting children’s literacy. We have had many philanthropic successes this year! Our chapter participated in Fraternity Day of Service, where Pi Phi chapters from across California met in Long Beach for a book drive amassing 30,000 books. Another honorable mention is our Arrowjam week, an event we hold annually consisting of Pie-A-Pi Phi, two restaurant fundraisers, and a Lip Sync competition between Greek organizations. Finally, we’ve been able to continue our favorite program, CAR (Champions Are Readers). CAR gives Pi Phis the opportunity to mentor and read with local elementary school students weekly, watching them grow and creating long-lasting friendships. Being able to promote a life-long love for reading among children is such a unique experience that our members get to enjoy. It’s rare for a Greek organization to go beyond fundraising; we are so lucky to be able to work hands-on and see our progress being made. More detailed information on our philanthropy and various initiatives can be found in the links on our Read>Lead>Achieve drop-down tab here: 

Being on Pi Phi’s Executive Board has been so rewarding; as our term comes to an end, I can confidently say that this year’s group made real change in our chapter. As VPCR, one of my main responsibilities is to ensure that our values are promoted in our community. Supported by the wonderful Pi Phis around me, I feel that my team has achieved that goal. I’m so proud of what our chapter has accomplished this year and am even more excited for what the future holds. 

Pi Phi Love and Mine,
