Spring Update
What a great semester! We welcomed six wonderful new women into our sisterhood and are preparing to send off a group of extraordinary seniors into the "real" world. This spring, our sisters bonded on nature hikes at the Caw Caw Nature Center; celebrated St. Patrick's Day with our favorite Disney Channel Original Movie, The Luck of the Irish; and danced the semester away at the Carnation Ball, held at the South Carolina Aquarium. From turning the Phi Mu house into a mini-Disney Land for Sigma Chi's Derby Days, to being "Too Legit to Sit!" at Dance Marathon, our sisters have helped raised TENS OF THOUSANDS of dollars for Charleston area philanthropies. Just this spring we managed to do all that, while still being involved in other organizations on campus and maintaining one of the highest GPA's in Greek Life. Happy Spring Ya'll! (read more)

Phi Mu Loves Carnation Ball
Spring semester has flown by, but its not over yet! CofC's Phi Mu Chapter still has a lot to look forward to including Carnation Ball, Third Dimension Ceremony, and Sisterhood Superlatives! Anticipation grows over the course of the year for our formal, Carnation Ball! Carnation Ball brings floor length dresses and the crowing of Carnation Princess and Queen. Third Dimension Ceremony is also something we're excited about. This ceremony is what makes our senior Phi Mus alumni. Although we're always sad to see our seniors leave, we support them in the next chapter of their lives. Spring will wrap up April 15th with our annual end of the year potluck! It's at this final meeting that every sister in the Chapter gets their own personalized superlative. It's so much fun to relive the semester's memories and relax before exams. (read more)
Phi Mu Loves Socials
Half way through the semester and Phi Mu has no intention of slowing down! Our sisterhood, philanthropy, and ritual events have been great as have our social events. While abiding by all state and federal laws our Chapter has had so much fun brainstorming costumes for socials each month. One our favorites was the Nautical Nights mixer where sisters dressed as mermaids, sailors, starfish, and even sharks! We also had a blast at our Western Showdown, Headbanger's Ball, and Crush Party. So much excitement and we're not done yet! The Chapter is looking forward to the Halloween Date Party and Semi Formal! (read more)
Phi Mu Loves Sisterhood
We're back at CofC and we're already showing our Phis how much we value sisterhood. It's only week 3 of school and Phi Mu has hosted numerous sisterhood events. We kicked off the year with a Pizza House Dinner. Sisters and Phis munched on pizza and caught up with each other after our busy summers. At PMS (popcorn, movie & sisterhood) Night new and old Phi Mus giggled together while watching Arthur and snacking on popcorn. We also had a TSM moment: Crafting where we all decorated picture frames to house special Phi Mu memories! (read more)
