SAN ANGELO, TX –– Angelo State University will be welcoming a new sorority for the Spring of 2022.
Alpha Phi was first established in 1872 and is one of the oldest and largest international sororities. As a social organization with the National Philanthropy, Alpha Phi supports women's heart health.
According to the ASU Ram Page, the process to bring Alpha Phi to the Angelo State campus began in 2019 after Delta Zata and Sigma Kappa voted to invite a new sorority.
Originally, Alpha Phi was supposed to complete a presentation before a university panel in March of 2020 –– but that was delayed because of the pandemic.
The presentation took place in April of 2021 and a month later Alpha Phi received an invitation to join ASU.
With recruitment starting in August, Alpha Phi extended more than 30 bids to candidates, but they will not be inducted until April of next year.
The society will have five committees that focus on sisterhood, social events, philanthropy events, marketing, and recruitment. Elections for the executive board will be held later this year.
