Gamma Phi Beta dedicates house: 42 women live in Texas State University chapter’s new facility

Texas State University’s Gamma Phi Beta chapter hosted its chapter facility dedication ceremony on Oct. 25 with about 250 supporters in attendance.
The ceremony was held at the house located at 124 B Spring Road.
The house is three stories, 15,000 square feet and sits on more than three acres. It is the largest sorority house at Texas State University.
Gamma Phi Beta was re-established at Texas State University in 2012 and officially opened its brand new chapter facility in November 2014.

November's Yard of the Month

Starting from scratch, landscaping a new home in a new subdivision is challenging for busy young families, even with the head start of a couple of trees and shrubs installed by developers.
But Paul Camden has broken the predictable pattern of adding small plants in border beds by starting a collection of flowering shrubs and vines in his large side yard.
A maple tree in the middle of the front lawn offers welcome shade and has grown tall and healthy in the fertile soils east of IH35.
