Alpha Phi was founded in 1872 by ten of the first female
students at Syracuse University. From
our founding, the values of sisterhood, service and scholarship have been the
foundation of Alpha Phi. In our history,
the leaders of our organization built the first sorority house in America,
established the first traveling consultant program, created the Alpha Phi
Foundation to support women’s heart health in 1956 and launched the first
sorority website. Alpha Phi is a home
for women at 169 collegiate campuses across North America.
