Founded in 1872 by ten forward thinking women at Syracuse University, Alpha Phi is now one of the oldest and largest women’s fraternities in North America with over 150 chapters internationally. The Iota Lambda chapter at UConn was founded in March of 2008 and has continued to uphold the ideals of Alpha Phi International since.
Alpha Phi Symbols
I believe in my Fraternity. I believe in the friendships formed in the springtime of my youth. I believe in its high ideals which lift me up beyond myself. I believe in its earnest drive for good scholarship, moral character, and genuine culture. I believe in it as a shrine of international sisterhood wherein I may find love and loyalty, sympathy and understanding inspiration and opportunity. I believe in it as a creator of good citizenship, helping me to do my work well, to live in harmony with others, and to serve my country and to trust in God. I believe in my Fraternity. I believe in Alpha Phi. – Annette Holt Hitchcock, Pi 1912
