Today, our founders’ legacy lives on through our members, an elite group of women. The objectives of our Fraternity are the promotion of growth character; 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 watch care 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 we who are thus united are under a solemn pledge to lend a helping hand to one another. Get a glimpse into the life of an Alpha Phi - one filled with service, scholarship, leadership, and everlasting sisterhood!
