“Living in the house made Alpha Phi even more of a home than it already was. It’s definitely something I’ll look back on and be glad I was able to live in such a nice home filled with so many great girls during my college years.”

initiate.


1886 became the first women's fraternity in America to build and occupy its own

chapter house.

This was the first intergroup organization on college campuses.

 

1905 had a member, Frances E. Willard, recognized by the U.S. Congress who placed a statue of her in Statuary Hall in the rotunda of the U.S. Capitol, the first woman to be so recognized. The pose is typical of her, standing at a lectern with a manuscript in her hand.

1940 had a member, Frances E. Willard, portrayed on a U.S. postage stamp.
 

1964 made 100 commemorative gavels from the cherry and birch stair railing of the first sorority house and presented them to the collegiate chapters, with the wish that they might serve as a "continuing reminder of Alpha Phi ideals which have stayed so constant over the past years."

 

1986 introduced RESPOND: A Forum for Supportive Action, an anti-victimization education program dealing with alcohol abuse, acquaintance rape, eating disorders, suicide, hazing, and harassment.

 

1988 introduced risk management education to collegians.

for Panhellenic recruitment nationwide.
 

2004 The Alpha Phi Foundation developed its own Red Dress pin as a symbol of heart

health for women everywhere.
 

2006 became the first women's fraternity to develop a values-based leadership institute

for emerging leaders based on women's developmental leadership theories.

educational podcast.
