Events

Our chapter offers a variety of ways to stay involved in Alpha Phi including monthly sisterhood events, happy hours, philanthropy & service events, and Ivy Connection activities geared toward bridging the gap between the collegiate experience and life as an alumnae.  Please look over our events below and we hope to see you at the next event! For more detailed information find the event within our Facebook Group.

Together While Apart

Let’s put the social in social distancing! Join us this year for a Virtually There calendar of events with something for everyone!  Each themed meeting will include opportunities for sisterhood with activities/games, an engaging program and of course, a dash of chapter business, oh and did I mention a monthly signature cocktail!  Our Alpha Phi Gives Back program last year was a big hit and everyone’s participation and donations were so appreciated.  This year, we will offer a link each month to contribute to a meaningful charity in our area, continuing our community support.
