Fraternity Heritage Resource Manual

Arrows, Angels and Admiration
Throughout the year, the Vice President of Fraternity Development is expected to engage the chapter in activities designed to help members understand how Pi Beta Phi and its individual chapters have become what they are today. 

An individual section of the Fraternity Heritage Resource Manual, Arrows, Angels and Admiration, is assigned each semester by Grand Council as the theme for Fraternity Education for the semester. 

We will be updating Fraternity heritage modules in 2018.  The Fraternity Heritage Activity Guide can be found in the Resource Library. The Fraternity heritage programming focus for Spring 2018 is Pi Beta Phi Philanthropies and the National Panhellenic Conference. The assigned topics for Fall 2018 are Chapter Heritages and Notable Pi Phis.  

The Pi Beta Phi Fraternity Heritage Resource Manual, Arrows, Angels and Admiration, was written by Fraternity Archivist and Historian, Fran DeSimone Becque, New York Alpha, in 1996.
