Chapter History

Founding

Gamma Beta Chapter was chartered on October 29th, 1995 at Morehead State University. The original class contained 33 members.

Local History

Gamma Beta started very strong in its early years. At one time, enrollment was more than 60 members. After a period of low recruitment and graduations, the Chapter dwindled down to a membership in the low 20's. Under the leadership of chapter President Amanda Earnest and Jesse Howard, Gamma Beta quickly returned to being a successful chapter. The recruitment of Chi and Psi classes brought in 25 new brothers and turned Gamma Beta back into a thriving Chapter.

The Active Chapter

  • Chapter Mascot: Eldo the Elephant

Eldo the Elephant was chosen as the Chapter Mascot by the Sigma Initiate Class. Originally, the class wanted a koala bear, but could not find one. Therefore, an elephant was chosen instead.

  • Chapter Symbol: the Golden Key.

The Chapter Symbol was chosen by the Xi Initiate Class. Upon graduation, Bigs and Littles exchange a decorated wooden key instead of a paddle.

  • Chapter Chant:

The Chapter Chant was given to the Chapter by the Pi Initiate Class after a few members attended Nationals and realized that all other Chapters had a chant. The Pi Initiate Class gathered in Rader Hall and wrote the chant. The line "You other Chapters can't deny" came from, or was inspired by a line in "Baby Got Back," which says: "you other Brothers can't deny."

Listen up so you can hear,
Morehead Gamma Beta's cheer!
You other Chapters can't deny,
We're the best of Phi Sigma Pi!
PSP as good as gold,
Morehead shows it three times fold!
We're all Brothers, tight as glue,
We're Gamma Beta, M! S! U!
