"Union Hand in Hand"
(Alpha Phi's public motto)
The Kappa Zeta Chapter
Colonized in September 2017 and installed on the McGill campus in April 2018, we join together to continue 148 years of sisterhood. Our chapter has been home to many McGill women who have left and continue to leave their impression on our hearts. University is more than just school, it's a time in our lives where we learn to grow as professionals, and as people, during this time, the women of Kappa Zeta stand by each other, uplift each other and encourage one and other to be our best. Anchored by Alpha Phi's high ideals of membership we forge forward to strengthen our leadership skills, our humanitarian spirits, our academic and professional success, our worldview and to embraces new relationships. The memories, experiences, and friendships made in our chapter last a lifetime.
Alpha Phi is a sisterhood of women supporting one another in lifelong achievement.
(Alpha Phi's mission)
Alpha Phi International
In 1872 Alpha Phi was founded by ten women at Syracuse University it became a space for women to be themselves and embrace their academic journey during a time where it was very alienating to be a female collegiate. Alpha Phi became an International Female Fraternity in 1906 upon the establishment of the Toronto “Xi” Chapter. In 2017, McGill’s “Kappa Zeta” Chapter expanded that legacy by becoming the Ninth Canadian Chapter of our International Fraternity. Our sisterhood spans across 172 Campuses and has over 262,936 initiated members. Our sisters share a commitment to excellence, as well as a strong desire to support one another and our communities. Alpha Phis High Ideals of membership include Character, Generosity, Sisterhood, and Innovation, our members are contributors and lifetime members of a sisterhood that values these traits.
"The objectives of our Fraternity are the promotion of growth in character, unity of feeling, sisterly affection, and social communion among our members."
