Found on March 4, 1852 in Macon, Georgia, Phi Mu is the second oldest female fraternal organization in the U.S.! It was also founded on the same campus as Alpha Delta Pi, and they are commonly called the two "Macon Magnolias" for this reason.
Starting with only three members when founded, Phi Mu now has charted over 228 chapters and 180,000 sisters in it's 164-year history! It was originally a literary society, but later joined the National Panhellenic Conference and thus took the Greek letters Phi Mu.
Phi Mu has worked hard to contribute well over $8.5 million and endless hours to improve lives for sick children and families through their sponsor Children's Miracle Network Hospitals. The first line of the Phi Mu creed is a big guiding principle, as it states "To lend to those less fortunate a helping hand".
