To the official website of the Eta Lambda chapter of Alpha Phi! On behalf of my sisters, I am honored to give you a look in to our chapter. My name is Arlene Flannery, the President of this outstanding group of women.
When I came to George Mason University, I was extremely excited for the many opportunities ahead of me. I signed up for sorority recruitment and met many wonderful women within the Panhellenic community. There was, however, something different about the sisters of Alpha Phi. I knew that these were women that didn’t settle. The women of Alpha Phi were goal setting, goal achieving, and would enable me to be the person I dreamed of becoming before I even chose Mason.
I received my bid in the Fall of 2014 and ever since then my sisters have never let me settle. They saw qualities in me that I had not yet found in myself and enabled me to be the best version of myself. Within Alpha Phi I have my role models, my future bridesmaids, and my home 500 miles away from the home I’d always known.
George Mason University is an amazing campus, constantly innovating and striving to offer its students the tools they need to succeed in an ever-changing world. Joining Alpha Phi has been the perfect addition to my Mason experience. My sisters exemplify the diverse and innovative spirit of George Mason and inspire one another to take advantage of the opportunities this community has to offer. One of my sisters helped me land an internship at the American Red Cross Head Quarters and I was able assist refugees all over the world. My story is not unique. Ask an Alpha Phi and they will tell you their majors, internships, and jobs were a result of their connection with Alpha Phi.
