Does your organization have a bylaw or statement regarding hazing? The object of Gamma Phi Beta is "to develop the highest type of womanhood through education, social life and service to country and humanity." Nowhere in the Sororitys governing documents is it mentioned that chapters instill pride, commitment and self worth by causing physical discomfort, embarrassment, harassment or ridicule; or by placing members in subservient roles. The purpose of the new member program is to develop outstanding, committed chapter members, not good new members. Remember, a Gamma Phi Beta new member is in fact, a member of the Sorority.
