This is the new Alpha Phi President. I can’t wait to see what she’s going to accomplish.

These are my gals. My right and left hand women. This year would have been impossible without them by my side.

My beautiful executive council. We did amazing work this year thanks to them.

After officially ending my year as President of Alpha Phi, I wanted to take a moment to reflect on my time as a member. From the second I read my bid card telling me I was a sister in the sorority, I knew my life was about to make some serious changes. I never could have known what kind of changes they would be.

I immediately found so many sisters whom I looked up to and who inspired me in different ways. I began to grow and discover who I was because of them. It wasn’t until my sophomore year going into my junior year when I really discovered my place in Alpha Phi. I held my first position on the executive council and started to see what things I could do to impact the Fraternity.

I was then selected to attend the Education Leadership Institute, where I learned how to be an effective leader in my chapter and where I finally found the courage to run for President. The night I was elected changed me in so many ways. I suddenly had huge shoes to fill, because I remember the President my freshman year and how she impacted me so much.

Looking back on this year, I am so proud of the changes we have made to this amazing chapter. We set our goals and we achieved them better than I could have ever imagined. The time I spent in office shaped me into an effective leader and taught me so many things not only about myself, but prepared me for my future. I feel now, more than ever that I am leaving this chapter in good hands and will continue to become an amazing chapter.

I can’t wait to see the great things that will begin to happen and I am even more excited to become a regular member again and soon to be alumnae of Alpha Phi.

Alpha Phi Creed

I believe in my Fraternity.

I believe in the friendships formed
in the springtime of my youth.

I believe in its high ideals
which lift me up beyond myself.

I believe in its earnest drive for good scholarship,
moral character, and genuine culture.

I believe in it as a shrine of
international sisterhood wherein
I may find love and loyalty,
sympathy and understanding, inspiration
and opportunity.

I believe in it as a creator of good citizenship,
helping me to do my work well,
to live in harmony with others, and
to serve my country and to trust in God.

I believe in my Fraternity.
I believe in Alpha Phi.

 -Annette Holt Hitchcock, (Pi-North Dakota) 1912
