Phi Mu sorority was founded on the campus of Wesleyan Female College in Macon, Georgia on March 4, 1852. Phi Mu was originally founded as the Philomathean Society on January 4, 1852 but didn't make a public announcement until March 4. Phi Mu is one of the two Macon Magnolias, which are the sororities that were started on the campus of Wesleyan College.
The Philomathean Society is the second oldest secret society to be formed for women. The society joined the National Panehellenic Conference in 1904 and at that time changed the name to adopt the Greek letters of Phi Mu. The small national sorority of Alpha Delta Theta merged with Phi Mu in 1939. The founding sisters of Phi Mu were Mary Ann Dupont, Mary Elizabeth Myrick, and Martha Bibb Hardaway.
The official philanthropy of Phi Mu is the Children's Miracle Network.
