       A Brief History of Gamma Beta Phi


Gamma Beta Phi was instituted on March 22, 1964, by a group of college educators. It was chartered as a non-profit educational organization under the laws of South Carolina on April 27, 1964. It was granted a complete tax-exempt status by the U.S. Treasury on May 6, 1966.

The response of students to Gamma Beta Phi has been astounding and most gratifying. The activity and service achievements of the chapters have mushroomed. The vast improvement in the Society has been due to the diligent efforts of many individuals. A spirit of optimism and pride now pervades the organization, and a strong sense of purpose is evident. As in every organization, however, the fight continues against apathy on the part of some members.
