Gamma Phi Beta

Let’s celebrate!

In 1931, our chapter was founded at McGill University and here we are 80 years later!

A big celebratory weekend will take place to commemorate the founding of the McGill Chapter with a variety of activities during Homecoming weekend.

What could be better than a weekend renewing our friendships? Join us for a weekend filled with fun, friendship and memories.

Tickets go on sale this summer.

The 80th Anniversary reunion weekend is the perfect time to

  • catch up with fellow pledge/new member class sisters;
  • see the changes at McGill through a walking tour of campus;
  • attend Homecoming events;
  • shop in Montreal;
  • and have some fun!

Come get reacquainted with sisters and meet new ones.

The anniversary weekend will kick off with a Gamma Phiesta, an 80th birthday mixer complete with balloons and birthday cake. Gamma Phi Beta alumnae and alumni from fraternities will celebrate this milestone and lifetime friendships on Friday night in the Thomson House lounge.
