Pennsylvania State University's Chapter of
PHI BETA LAMBDA
Part of the largest career student business organization in the world
Since our founding, the mission of ΦBΛ has been to bring business and education together in a positive working relationship through innovative leadership and professional development programs. We embody this mission through our four pillars: professionalism, philanthropy, social, and competition.
Hello all! It is my utmost pleasure to welcome you to the website of Penn State's chapter of Phi Beta Lambda, a Co-Ed Professional Business Fraternity! I would like to personally invite you to learn more about what we do as an organization and how you can become a part of our family as well.
PBL consists of individuals from all backgrounds and majors, so no matter who you are and what you study, you're sure to find a home within PBL. Our brothers are constantly active in pursuing careers, making a difference in the community, and forging life-long relationships. With over 120 active brothers, our organization is continuously growing under the leadership and direction of our Executive Board. Whether we’re running a professional development event, raising money for Penn State’s Dance MaraTHON, participating in a philanthropy event, or just hanging out, PBL is always living by our motto, “Big Business, Bigger Family."
PBL is one of the most well rounded organizations on campus. With our four main pillars directed towards "professionalism", "philanthropy", "social", and "competition", you'll never find yourself looking for something to do. To put it simply, PBL allows students to “get involved” in all aspects of being a student at Penn State. I would like to personally invite you to explore our website and see if you'd be a good fit within PBL. Allow us to give you an opportunity to be a part of something where your strengths and ideas are put into effect and a place that you can call home.
