Alpha Phi

Alpha Phi is a sisterhood of outstanding women supporting one another in lifelong achievement. Founded at Syracuse University by ten of the first twenty women admitted to the newly opened university. The Original Ten, the founders of Alpha Phi, were women of courageous vision and pioneering hearts. Pursuing their studies in a male-dominated university, these women yearned for a circle of friends who could sympathize with each other’s troubles and support each other’ ambitions. On September 18, 1872, these ten women initiated themselves into Alpha Phi.

The sisterhood of Alpha Phi stretches from coast to coast through 170 collegiate campuses and more than 220,000 members. Sisters share a commitment to excellence and a strong desire to help one another and their communities. Alpha Phi enhances and promotes each member's development and learning by focusing on sisterhood, service, scholarship, leadership, loyalty and character.

Alpha Phi is joining the UGA Greek community this fall! Your experience as a founding member of UGA Alpha Phi will be exciting and historic. While your sorority experience will mirror that of your friends’ in other chapters in many ways, you will have the distinction of being a founding member of a group that will establish a lasting legacy at UGA. You will have the opportunity to help shape the character and chart the course for UGA Alpha Phi.
