Seeing Double: The Other Gamma Phi Beta

We caught up with Gamma Phi Beta, but not the one you know from main campus. This is the chapter of the sorority that hails from the Altoona Campus.

At first, they had us confused, holding up their letters on the entire opposite side of the BJC as the rest of their sorority. As it turns out, these ladies are freshmen from the Commonwealth campus who are enjoying their first THON.

Just like Gamma Phi at University Park, they are paired with the Altoona chapter of Acacia All of their fundraising efforts go towards Altoona Benefiting THON. Their sorority THON chair, Lindsay McKenna, and their president and Altoona THON Chair Melissa Granatire, both spent time in the Altoona stands while these girls held down the fort.

THON - The IFC/Panhellenic Dance Marathon (THON), the most ubiquitous event on campus, has been in existence since 1973. THON currently benefits the Four Diamonds Fund at the Penn State Milton S. Hershey Medical Center Children’s Hospital and has raised over $100,000,000 since its inception. Read more
