Why Alpha Phi Gamma?
Alpha Phi Gamma is a wonderful opportunity for personal growth, bringing together all women of different nationalities through the bonds of friendship and sisterhood, under the common goal of Asian American Awareness in the university and the community. Along with this, the sorority has many other goals and wonderful qualities. If you feel that this bond is what you would like to bring to your school, then please, by all means, stay in contact and we will be glad to mentor you in your program. Above all, we would like to help you discover if Alpha Phi Gamma is “the” sorority for you. That is what is most important; for you to find what sorority best suits your own personal needs.
By becoming a sister of Alpha Phi Gamma you can develop friendships that can last for a lifetime. Through the activities and events that you will experience by joining Alpha Phi Gamma you will form bonds that will strengthen as time goes by. This unique opportunity will enable you to meet people who you may not normally meet in your day-to-day life at school. Not only do you develop friendships with members at your University, but you will also have the opportunity to meet members from other schools and further your bonds of Sisterhood.
Understanding that our community is an integral part of our lives, Alpha Phi Gamma has made philanthropy one of our main focuses. At Alpha Phi Gamma’s First National Conference, the Fight Against Violence Toward Women was officially established as our National Philanthropy. We hope to spread awareness of this problem to others and to help in the community. Our Sorority also continues to participate in many other philanthropies such as AIDS Walk, Race for the Cure, Revlon Run/Walk, shelters, food drives, and toy drives.
To help promote and reinforce our participation in philanthropies our National Board awards both schools and individuals for their dedication and efforts.
A well-rounded individual should have varied interests that enables them to grow in all directions. Alpha Phi Gamma provides that with our social events, community interest and our scholastic standards. As part of our efforts to encourage academic excellence study hours and groups have been designed to help with school. An above average grade point average must be maintained to be a member of our Sorority.
