As one of Alpha Phi's core values, sisterhood is a key part of what makes Eta Lambda so special to us. Sisterhood binds us to one another through fidelity and cooperation. As stewards of our sorority, Alpha Phi entrusts us to uphold integrity of our organization as well as of each of its members. Alpha Phi strives for the pursuit of excellence, as well as the promotion of loyalty and leadership of its members. Our sisterhood has been able to achieve excellence over the years, as we promote our members to be individually unique, yet together complete.
In order to recognize the accomplishments of our sisters and to bring our chapter membership together, Alpha Phi holds several sisterhood retreats. This past year, Alpha Phi hosted a number of fun events for sisters. We cheered on the Washington Nationals against the New York Mets, went rollerblading, ate IHOP together on International Pancake Day, went hiking at Great Falls Park, played outdoor laser tag, and had fun at a trampoline park!
In addition, Alpha Phi often holds informational sessions, or program meetings, for sisters. Whether its a resume building workshop, a Yoga class or Krav Maga class, sisters find a way to make the meetings a great time.
Big & Little
One of the best parts about becoming an Alpha Phi is having the opportunity to form a bond with another sister that is unlike any other. Big Sisters serve as guiding mentors throughout your Alpha Phi journey. They help pick the right classes, give great advice, take you out for ice cream, and most importantly, are always there for you no matter what.
Each new member receives a big sister during their first semester who serves as a role model, a friend and a mentor to the new member! During the member’s second year, they receive a little sister who they get to be a mentor for.
