Hi! My name is Megan Carey and I have had the pleasure of serving as Illinois Eta’s Chapter President. Illinois Eta exemplifies the ideals, values, mission, and vision of this premiere organization while using leadership, friendship, and service as stepping stones into college life and beyond. Through these ideals and more we are able to create a memorable and influential experience as a fraternity women.
Utilizing servant leadership, Illinois Eta is able to discover and expand their leadership style with never-ending advancements and support. Women are able to become leaders within our chapter and Millikin University’s campus furthermore, coinciding with Millikin’s goal of performance learning. With the value and embodiment of sincere friendship, Illinois Eta women are able to create bonds lasting beyond our time as active members through our shared ideals and memories. Finally through philanthropic service Pi Beta Phi women are able to use our personal need and obligation to generate bonds with our surrounding Decatur community. We are lucky to have the ability to promote literacy to young students as well as on Millikin’s campus. These experiences and more allow a greater impact on our Pi Beta Phi experience.
