ALPHA PHI

Beta Theta Chapter

University of British Columbia

Letter from the President  .

Hi!

 

I’m Micaela, and I’m the current President of Alpha Phi. I am so excited to give you a look into the organization that has changed my life; giving me my best friends, travel partners, and a lifelong support system. 

 

Alpha Phi was started in 1872 on the basis of women supporting women, and this sisterhood still holds as one of our core values today. Today Alpha Phi has four core values: generosity, sisterhood, character development and innovation. These values have helped women in our chapter not only make an amazing friend group, but they also drive us to be better scholars, emphasize the importance of giving back to the community, and promote creativity. These values create women whom I am confident will be future leaders in whatever life path they choose. 

 

Alpha Phi is where I have truly found my people, and my home away from home. I hope that while scrolling this page you can visualize the same for yourself!

 
 

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!
