The Strawberry Patch

Enrichment and Inspiration for Beta Sigma Phi Sisters from Marilyn Ross


  When you first look upon a strawberry you see 3 things:

The Berry itself -- which for us can symbolize Life because

It's bright!

It's just for you!

It's red--our color for Courage!

It's heart-shaped to symbolize your love for Beta Sigma Phi!

The Stem -- can symbolize Learning because

It's green--our color of Fellowship and stems from the love we have for each other in our hearts; the consideration and enjoyment we are to extend to all fellow beings.

It's the color of growth and new ideas
new ways of thinking
new ways of being
new ways of doing

The Seeds -- symbolizing all the wonderful sisters we come to know and love in Beta Sigma Phi! We can have just as may sisters as there are seeds on a strawberry!

Each part of the strawberry symbolizes a different facet of goodness:

Its leaves represent wholeness and perfections.

Its blossoms stand for foresight.

Valued for its fragrance and flavor, the strawberry suggests perfection and good works.

Strawberries are heart-shaped. Hearts symbolize love and love is the first great lesson and the fellowship of Beta Sigma Phi!

They are red and green, ideal at holiday time!

Heart-shaped - perfect for Valentine's Day, rush parties, Mother's Day, Founder's Day, patriotic themed socials, Beginning Day events, etcetera

Readily available year round!
