Phi Gamma Chi Sorority

"Make us a Channel" acts as their motto as it relates to us being comprised of such a diverse group of women. Each individual woman contributes her own unique talents, experiences, culture, and personality to our sorority. Despite their individuality, the sisters are bound together as one by a bond of sisterhood. We believe that the word sisterhood means a friendship that will last a lifetime.


Phi Gamma Chi Sorority was founded in 1988 in order to dedicate ourselves to enhancing religious and cultural awareness on and around the Iona College campus.
