Welcome to the Epsilon Nu Chapter of Alpha Phi at the University of Delaware! Internationally, Alpha Phi is made up of 173 active chapters with over 250,000 initiated members. Currently, on campus, we are one of thirteen chapters that make up the Panhellenic Community.
Alpha Phis are leaders and honor our values of Sisterhood, Scholarship, Service, Leadership, Loyalty and Character Development. As one of Alpha Phi's core ideals, Sisterhood is one of our strongest characteristics that makes Epsilon Nu so special to us. Our motto, “Union hand in hand”, is something we live by in supporting one another in lifelong achievement.
Returning back to campus for my my junior year has presented me with many exciting moments, but also many challenges. I can always count on the women of this chapter to be there during the good and the bad, and to support me in whatever I do.
Living in the Alpha Phi house this semester has been the highlight of my college experience thus far. 158 South College has given me so many amazing friendships and opportunities, in addition to true home away from home. It is a rare opportunity to live with 47 amazing women all with similar values and goals, and I can’t imagine my time at UD without it.
My favorite thing about Alpha Phi is our sisterhood and our dedication to becoming outstanding members of our community. Through events such as Sisterhood Retreat, Philanthropy Week, and Diversity, Equity and Inclusion week, we strengthen the bond within our organization and with others. All of our events are so special to our chapter, as they create the foundation for achieving our goals and maintaining our values.
I am more than proud to lead a chapter that constantly gives back to the community, raises money for our philanthropy, teaches our members valuable life skills, and provides endless amounts of opportunity to grow as a student and beyond. The skills and friendships I have gained while being a sister in this chapter will follow me long after I graduate next May.
I am proud to say I will be leaving this campus with sisters who uplift me to my fullest potential, endless networking opportunities, having held multiple leadership positions, and lastly a home away from home. I could not imagine my life without Alpha Phi and I am forever grateful to this school, chapter, and sisters who have changed my life.
On behalf of the Alpha Phi and the Epsilon Nu Chapter, thank you for taking the time to learn about who we are and what makes us so unique.
