The Philomathean Society was founded in January of 1852 at Wesleyan College by Mary Ann Dupont (Lines), Mary Elizabeth Myrick (Daniel), and Martha Bibb Hardaway (Redding). Wesleyan College is a private liberal arts women's college located in Macon Georgia. Wesleyan was the first institute to grant bachelor's degrees to women, and known as the birthplace of the collegiate sorority, though most sororities predate the term "sorority" and are known as "fraternities for women". Through the founding of the Philomathean Society, a literary society, the three founders sought to improve their minds and delighted in the close bonds of friendship they formed. The Philomathean Society joined the National Panhellenic Conference in 1904, taking on the Greek letters "Phi Mu". Members History Early histories of women's fraternities contain accounts of "rushing and pledging agreements" or "compacts" among fraternities
The official symbol of Phi Mu is "the quatrefoil of Phi Mu". The Quatrefoil is a unique symbol amongst Greek organizations; though it bears special meaning to sisters, its use can be traced back to early European design.
The Phi Mu Badge is a shield of gold shaped in the Quatrefoil, overlaid with a black shield bearing the two bonds, three stars, hand clasping a heart and the Greek letters “Phi Mu. ” Sarah Amelia Bardwell (Wright) designed the first badge in 1852. The first Phi Mu badge was created from a $20 gold piece that was given to Mary Ann Dupont (Lines) by her father when she left home to attend Wesleyan.
New/Provisional Members, or "Phis", of Phi Mu wear the organization's new member pin, given to them when they formally pledge Phi Mu. The Phi Pin (or Provisional/New Member pin) is a black and gold shield with the Greek Letter “Phi. ”
The lion is the official mascot of Phi Mu. The lion ( Panthera leo) is a member of the family Felidae and one of four Big cats in the Genus Panthera. Lions have always been a part of our history and are also shown on our Coat of Arms. Our mascot, which we affectionately call “Sir Fidel,” is a name adapted from our open motto, Les Soeurs Fideles. Sir Fidel was created in 1973.
The rose-colored carnation is the official flower of Phi Mu. In the language of flowers, the rose carnation means "friendship", but according to the Grand Historian (1907-1908), Lillian Estes (Davis), “pink carnations are, and always have been, the emblematic flower".
The Sisters of Phi Mu are guided by the Creed, which was adopted at the 1916 convention when submitted by members of the Mu Chapter. The Creed serves as the mission statement of the Fraternity, and outlines the primary purposes of the Fraternity: Love, Honor, Truth.

To keep forever sacred the memory of those we have loved and lost.
