List Your Chapter for People to SEARCH FOR in YOUR AREA



Together the Rushing Department and Division Chairman have created a new program. It is entitled Ritual of Jewels Extreme Makeover. The Division Chairman have written to every Ritual of Jewel chapter that qualifies to participate. The object is to have the current members of the RJ chapter to move up into the appropriate chapter degree level and re-fill their Ritual of Jewel chapter with new pledges.

Awards available; $100.00 for adding seven new pledges or $200.00 for adding ten new pledges ($100. to the original chapter and $100. to the new members treasury.) The Rushing Department has also created a RJ Extreme Makeover Pin for each member participating. So each current chapter member will receive one. The members moving up will automatically have a Four Star Rating in the Torch for the current sorority year. Sisters/Chapters that send in photos of the rush parties with details will see them in Torch & Web Page coverage. (There are plans underway for a new BSP web page this fall.)

We have sent out the basic guidelines; however, further questions or comments have been:

-"We don't want to break up our chapter, we have been together forever" With this makeover we expect all the current chapter members to move to the new higher degree chapter together.

-"What about our treasury, service project, and chapter supplies?" You take everything with you to the new chapter, you leave nothing behind except the Ritual of Jewel chapter name and number.

-"What degree level would we qualify for?" Your Division Chairman would determine that once the request has reached her desk, basically whatever degree the majority of the members hold would determine the chapter level.

-"Do we have a deadline to complete this makeover?" There is no deadline except the one you give yourselves. You will find that if you give yourselves a goal of three months for completion you will reach that goal. International would love to see quite a few Extreme Makeovers completed this new sorority year.

-"We don't know where to begin." Just contact the Rushing Department to assist you. We have each step from beginning to end, plus many helpful ideas, and a great Extreme Party Plan designed especially for this program.



Even though I have been a member for only 10 months, I have truly fallen in love with Beta Sigma Phi. It's an honor to be in a sisterhood with women from different countries, cultures, races and educational backgrounds. Honestly since becoming a member I have discovered a lot about myself and what I'm passionate about. I am looking forward to many many wonderful years in Beta Sigma Phi!

- Patrice (Decatur, GA) Pledge 12 Months


I joined Beta Sigma Phi in the small West Texas town of Marfa before I adopted my first child, about 30 years ago. I had a skip in membership after a few moves, but rejoined with my land group in Tucson, Arizona. My Realtor was a member. I miss going to meetings since there is no group within 75 miles, so I'm glad I have OLETA membership.

- Sandi B.


I have been a member of Beta Sigma Phi for over 35 years. I joined when International used to have city wide rushes in many of the larger cities. The many chapters that I've belonged to over the years have been a blessing to me since I'm an only child.. I now have lots of sisters. Now & belong to Georgia Kappa Alpha in Blairsville & I'm a charter member of On Line Alpha.

- Bevie (Young Harris, GA)


I have been a member since I was teaching in my 20's. My mother thought I would like it, and I apparently did and have been a member for over 22 years. My mother has been one for 46 years and still enjoys the life long friendships.
