Alpha Phis are members of a lifelong sisterhood, formed from true and loving friendships. Beginning with our ten founders at Syracuse University in 1872, Alpha Phi has grown to become an international organization with over 140 chapters. The traditions, sisterhood, and love our founders felt all those years ago, continues to ring true in the hearts of thousands of women today. Our values rest on promoting sisterhood, scholarship, service, loyalty, character development and leadership, all of which encourage our members to reach their true potential.

The women of Alpha Phi feel very strongly about giving back to our community. Our chapter hosts two amazing philanthropy events each year: “Red Dress Gala” and our brand new event, “Heart and Sole 5K Run/Walk.” Money raised at these events is donated to the Alpha Phi Foundation, which helps fund research and educational programs in support women’s cardiac health. In addition to our own events, each year Alpha Phis participates in a number of campus and Madison area community service opportunities. By participating in Relay for Life, Dance Marathon, Humorology, Habitat for Humanity and philanthropy events sponsored by others in the UW-Madison Greek community, Alpha Phis show their passion for service.

We recognize that academics are the number one reason our members are at the University of Wisconsin ; this is why we provide many programs to encourage members to do their best in class. We encourage our members to take advantage of weekly study tables, attend our Sunday night study session at College Library and attend Greek-wide events for better scholarship. Similarly, we support our members to become leaders. Women within the chapter have the opportunity to run for a position whether it be elected or appointed. Our members also hold leadership roles outside of Alpha Phi, including within the Panhellenic board and other student organizations.

While we work hard, having fun is just as important! Our members always look forward to our social events including date parties, themed parties, and formals. In addition, Alpha Phis enjoy hanging out with each other at sisterhood events. From bowling, to yoga workouts, and late night movies, we Phis always have fun together. And although our house is on Langdon Street , our backyard reaches all the way down to the lake – which means some great bonding time sunbathing and unwinding!

Here at Alpha Phi, you will find a group of girls with many different passions, whether it be volunteering, participating in sports, or becoming involved with other campus activities. Yet while we may differ in many ways, the one passion we share is our pride and love of being an Alpha Phi.

Alpha Phi follows a strict no-hazing policy, which fosters growth of character among all its members .
