Founded in 1872 at Syracuse University, Alpha Phi has blossomed into a vibrant national sorority that has instilled the values of sisterhood, scholarship, service, leadership, and loyalty to over 200,000 women across the United States and Canada. The Iota chapter, the ninth chapter, of Alpha Phi was founded at the University of Wisconsin, Madison in 1896. The women of Alpha Phi are dedicated to improving themselves and their community. Alpha Phi embodies the legacy of the past and looks towards a bright future for all its members.
Alpha Phi offers a variety of opportunities to its women. Our sorority enjoys socials with other houses at Wisconsin. We participate in campus activities such as homecoming week, Greek Week, Derby Days, and Humorology. Alpha Phi offers many leadership positions and involvement options. Scholarship opportunities abound through study tables, major binders, and other resources. We believe in strengthening not only ourselves, but the community. We bond together in planning and participating in our annual Red Dress Gala in the fall and Heart and Sole 5k in the spring. In 2011 we raised over $29,000 to support women’s heart health. We also participate in philanthropies created by other Greek houses and volunteer all over campus.
Alpha Phis are well rounded, brave, and vivacious young women. We look forward to embracing new sisters every fall through formal recruitment. Alpha Phi is not just a house, it’s a home.
