ALPHA PHI

Beta Theta Chapter

University of British Columbia

Letter from the President  .

Hi! I’m Steph, and I’m the current President of Alpha Phi UBC. I joined Alpha Phi at Western University and transferred to the UBC chapter in my second year. From coast to coast this organization has been an integral part of my university experience. It is Alpha Phi where I found my best friends, my career goals, support system, and travel buddies.

 

Alpha Phi was founded in 1872 on the basis of women supporting women, which still stands as an important facet of our organization. Today Alpha Phi has four core values: generosity, sisterhood, character development and innovation. These values have helped the women in our chapter make incredible bonds, drive us to be better scholars, highlight the importance of helping others in the community, and promote creativity. These values promote the development of strong and confident women who will make our world a better place in whatever life path they choose. 

 

Alpha Phi is not only my home away from home, but it has shaped me into the person I am today. There is nothing I would love more than to share all that Alpha Phi has given to me with you!

 
 

Our Values

Sisterhood

Sisterhood is a bond rooted in kindness, love, and mutual respect. Members form lifelong friendships that encourage, inspire, and empower them. "Watchcare" is the cornerstone of this lifelong friendship, a promise to vigilantly support each other through good times and bad.

Generosity

Alpha Phis show their commitment to bettering the world through action in their daily lives. Sisters offer their time, talents and compassion by volunteering in their communities. Members kind-heartedly contribute to their sisters and peers, living the motto “hand to hand and heart to heart.” Alpha Phis embrace philanthropy by supporting Alpha Phi Foundation and raising awareness surrounding women’s heart health. Alpha Phis show the philanthropic spirit of love and charity, while working to better their communities. Members are dedicated to supporting those in need.

 
Innovation

Innovation has been a crucial part of Alpha Phi since it's founding. Alpha Phi itself and its members thrive to achieve innovation. Members of Alpha Phi work hard in making a positive change throughout the worlds they live in.​

Character

Strong character and integrity are at the core of Alpha Phi membership. Sisters thrive on challenges and celebrate successes. We are strong-minded, empowered women who take responsibility for our actions and learn to lead through example. We set expectations high for ourselves and for each other, and strive diligently to meet them.

Our Philanthropy 

The Alpha Phi Foundation was created in 1956 to support our international philanthropic cause: Women's Heart Health. Heart disease is the #1 killer of women in North America , and affects one in three adult women, making it close to our hearts. 

In addition to the Alpha Phi Foundation, we also contribute to the Heart and Stroke Foundation.

 

Throughout the month of February - Heart Health month - we host 'Phibruary' where members of other sororities and fraternities compete to raise the most money. The week culminates in our biggest philanthropy event of the year - The Dating Game! 

 

We also host a philanthropy event in the fall called 'Mac and Phis' where we cook and serve delicious mac and cheese that we sell to the UBC community buffet style! 

 

Aside from our chapters philanthropies we also take part in volunteer opportunities in and around Vancouver with various organizations!
