About Alpha Phi
Alpha Phi is a sisterhood of outstanding women supporting one another in lifelong achievement. This international women's fraternity enhances and promotes each member's development and learning by focusing on sisterhood, service, scholarship, leadership, loyalty and character development. Alpha Phi was founded in Syracuse, New York in 1872, and has since grown to 158 collegiate campuses and more than 200,000 members.
History of the Beta Psi Chapter
The Beta Psi Chapter at San José State University was founded in 1957. This chapter is home to a group of sisters who are diverse in many ways: where they come from, their career path, and their interests. But, we are all bonded together by Alpha Phi's values, traditions, and sisterhood. As college students first and sorority members second, we strive for academic excellence and work hard in school. This past semester our chapter's average GPA was 3.0; the highest GPA in our council. We also participate in many community service and philanthropy events throughout the year, including 3 of our own where we raise money for The Alpha Phi Foundation. Our chapter offers many leadership opportunities to members, which help them grow as leaders and as individuals. Though we work hard, there is always something fun going on at the Alpha Phi house, whether it's a movie night, a trip to the Giants game, or a social with another Greek organization.
