OUR BETA PI CHAPTER
WHAT WE OFFER
PGN members have the opportunity to apply the skills they learn in the classroom to real-world projects, running an organization, managing people, and navigating situations that will better prepare them for transitioning to the workplace.
COMMUNITY OF MENTORS
At PGN, we are devoted to each other and driven to success, meaning you have mentors for life - ready to help you throughout your career.
PGN accepts all majors to ensure that we are reflective of the demographics and skill sets of today’s businesses. Most importantly, this allows us to prepare future leaders across verticals with the skills needed to succeed.
This pillar is what drives and equips our members to pursue their passions and surpass their career goals in the professional world. With over 30 majors across our members, our organization offers a wide breadth of exposure to various fields, companies, and professional workshops. PGN members benefit greatly through professional development from one on one mentorship within our Big Brother and Alumni Mentor programs.
The social pillar is a fundamental aspect of PGN, as it helps create strong bonds across all member classes, laying the groundwork for lasting connections and friendships. PGN members partake in various seasonal events throughout the year, from the apple orchard outing in the fall to a ski trip in the winter. However, when in need of a social fix during a typical week, there are plenty of opportunities to get together, whether it be through attending a group dinner or friendly intramural volleyball game.
Our philanthropy pillar allows our members to consistently and creatively leave a positive impact on the Champaign community by giving back to organizations we care about, such as DREAAM, Adopt a Highway, and CU at Home. We provide different opportunities to engage in the community, ranging from mentoring kids after school to cleaning up a local park. PGN also hosts Mr. Business, a male pageant show to raise money for the Boys and Girls Club, along with Compete for a Cure, which is a 5k that supports a different charity each year.

HEALTH AND WELLNESS
The Health and Wellness Committee was founded by one of our actives, Caroline Hodakowski, to promote the mental and physical wellness of all members. Whether it be through the HWC Instagram posts, member-led informational presentations, or weekly creative activities like splatter painting, the H&WC is here for individuals to learn how to support themselves and others to foster an even stronger PGN community.
DIVERSITY & INCLUSION
The Diversity & Inclusion Committee was created in Fall 2020 by members Michael Mitchell and Stefan Rebic. This committee was created to give PGN members the foundational tools to increase our social awareness, as well as to celebrate the beauty of difference we have within our own organization. Weekly workshops and presentations are led by our members in order to continue to educate our members on the importance and complexity of diversity and inclusion.
PGN Beta Pi gives you the opportunity to gain new experiences and create lifetime memories through traveling with fellow PGN members to different cities, states, or countries. From the annual Ski Trip in Colorado to week long summer adventures in Arizona to Spring Break vacations to Mexico, Phi Gamma Nu Beta Pi gives you the chance to go on exciting adventures with your closest friends.
