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.

We are looking forward to seeing our lovely girls of Alpha Phi in person for the 2021-2022 meeting season. We will continue our Alpha Phi Gives Back initiative; a philanthropy has been chosen for each meeting event to support local charities and continue Alpha Phi’s history of generosity and service
