Welcome to the Phi Mu Rho Theta Chapter at Elmhurst College! Founded in 1852, Phi Mu is the second oldest sorority in the nation. We were founded based on the three principles of love, honor, and truth. As an organization, we strive to live by these vibrant values in our daily lives. These values are what change a friendship into a sisterhood through a shared tradition. We are committed to academic excellance, service, leadership development, campus involvement, and social accomplishments.  We hope you enjoy learning more about our sisterhood! 

Phi Mu is the screams, smiles and hugs on the first day back in fall. It is knowing spontaneous fun can happen at any moment.  It is the people we run to with the best of news and who support us in the worst disasters. They always have a shoulder to cry on and never fail to leave a thoughtful note on our doors they are and always will be our sisters. Our sisters are down to earth, loving, and genuine. No matter what comes our way we know we have our sisters by our side to guide us.
