The Beauty and Power of Sisterhood

Alpha Phi is a sisterhood of outstanding women supporting one another in lifelong achievement. Our mission is to continue to live by our values of sisterhood, scholarship, service, leadership, loyalty and character development.

If I went through Recruitment a thousand times, each time I would end up back at my home, inside the doors of Alpha Phi. I love my chapter. I love my sisters. I love Alpha Phi.”

I joined Alpha Phi because I was able to find a home away from home. A place where I know no matter what happens someone will always be there for me.”

All of these girls love me for exactly who I am. I have gained amazing leadership experience, and have made friends for life!”

Rockin' Red Dress Poker Tournament

 

One of the main things that Alpha Phi values is philanthropy. Every year, Mizzou Alpha Phi hosts the Rockin’ Red Dress Poker Tournament and proceeds from the event benefit women’s cardiac care through the Alpha Phi Foundation.

“The Alpha Phi Foundation is important because it is so influential to individuals, hospitals, research and the advancement of women’s cardiac care. They make it their mission to not only donate and support women’s cardiac care, but to influence and educate future leaders that will further the Foundation’s efforts,” Director of Philanthropy Michelle Kramer said.

This is one of the biggest philanthropic events from any Greek Chapter on Mizzou's campus. We take pride in the Alpha Phi Foundation and our tournament is a fun way for other students, family, and members of the Columbia community to help us raise money for a great cause. To learn more, visit the Alpha Phi Foundation's website at http://www.alphaphifoundation.org, or contact our Director of Philanthropy.

 Every one of us in Alpha Phi, including myself, have in some way been affected or known of someone who has been affected by heart disease. Therefore, it means more to me than I can put in words to be able to raise funds and awareness while bringing together our chapter, alumnae, and community for a cause that is near to all our hearts."

Letter From the President

   Welcome to Alpha Phi- Omicron Chapter Website! I hope this website allows you to see the countless opportunities, memories, and sisterhood events Alpha Phi provides to its members.

   Alpha Phi was founded at Syracuse University in 1872 and the Omicron Chapter was founded at the University of Missouri in 1910. Since our founding at Mizzou over 100 years ago, the women of Omicron have committed to upholding the values Alpha Phi was founded upon—sisterhood, scholarship, service, leadership, loyalty, and character development. Though all of members join our chapter with a strong foundation of these values, we continuously strive to build on these principles and we demonstrate them every day within the Greek Community, across campus, and in the city of Columbia.

   Through the doors of 906 S. Providence is a unique group of women who share love, laughter, and countless memories. Whether we’re having a Pinterest craft night or competing in Greek Week and Homecoming, we can always count on having a memorable time together. Besides participating in events within our chapter, we can be seen across campus as anchors for KOMU, Golden Girls, cheerleaders, writers for the Missourian and Vox, Tour Team guides, and Steering Committee members. We regularly participate in service projects such as volunteering at the local food bank, working with the Boys and Girls’ Club of Columbia, and painting canvases for MU Children’s Hospital. In addition, through our “Rockin Red Dress Poker Tournament and Auction”, our philanthropy raised over $16,000 this year benefitting women’s cardiac care.

This sisterhood has provided me with a reliable support system throughout my time at Mizzou. My sisters push me to be a better student, leader, and, overall, a better woman. Feel free to contact me if you have any questions!

Very Truly Yours,

Shelby L. Fuchs, Chapter President
