Our Values



A Sisterhood…that last a lifetime. Alpha Phi allows her members to develop life-long friendships based on mutual support and unconditional love.  Alpha Phis enjoy a sincere sisterhood throughout college and in every stage of their lives. 

The common bond of scholarship. Alpha Phi’s founders were ten of the first women to enter Syracuse University in 1872.  These women valued their education above societal expectations and shared the desire to acquire knowledge and education. This is a value that all Alpha Phis still share today. 
Service hand to hand and heart to heart. Alpha Phi has long understood the value in serving others.  Alpha Phis across North America donate their time, efforts and dollars to assist those less fortunate.  The Alpha Phi is one of the oldest Greek Foundations and works to raise awareness and funds in support of women’s heart health. PioneeringLeadership. Alpha Phis lead by example and strive for continuous, innovative improvement. Since her inception, Alpha Phi has been a leader in the Greek community.  Alpha Phi’s founders encouraged one another to think, invent and improve.  This pioneering spirit can be seen throughout Alpha Phi history and today – in our founding, our development of new chapters and our willingness to be a pioneer as exemplified by our many “firsts”.

Genuine support and life-long loyalty. Alpha Phis are members for a lifetime and learn the value of loyalty and being true to Alpha Phi’s ideals.   Members continue to be devoted, connected sisters throughout college and beyond. 

High expectations for…CHARACTER DEVELOPMENT. Alpha Phi fosters the qualities of strong character that distinguish our members and our sisterhood, including compassion, integrity and sincerity. In Alpha Phi, all members learn to lead by example through their actions and communication.  They set expectations high for themselves and each other, and strive diligently to meet them.
