Alpha Phi International Fraternity was founded at Syracuse University in 1872 as one of the first Greek societies for women. Alpha Phi is dedicated to promoting sisterhood, cultivating leadership, encouraging intellectual curiosity, and advocating service. The organization is comprised of more than 171 collegian chapters and 150 alumnae chapters throughout the United States and Canada.
The objectives of our Fraternity are the promotion of growth in chapter; unity of feeling; sisterly affection, and social communion among our members. In all that we do, we try to obey God’s principles of justice and right.
We have banded ourselves together to improve our minds and hearts, and we seek to aid each other through a constant watchcare always given in love.
We believe ourselves to be sincere searchers for truth.
We seek the highest ideal of womanhood, and we try to gain this ideal by cultivating not only the power and passion for seeking intellectual development but, also, the spirit of love and charity. And thus we are united under a solemn pledge to lend a helping hand to one another.
