Texas Alpha Epsilon Phi
When and Why was Alpha Epsilon Phi established?
Alpha Epsilon Phi Sorority was founded on October 24, 1909 by seven Jewish women at Barnard College in New York City. Their goal was to foster lifelong friendship and sisterhood, academics, social involvement and community service while providing a home away from home for their members. AEPhi welcomes, with open arms, hundreds of new members each year and seeks not only to live up to the ideals and goals of its original founders, but also to exceed them. Today we are a Jewish sorority, but not a religious organization, with membership open to all college women, regardless of religion, who honor, respect and appreciate our Jewish founding and are comfortable in a culturally Jewish environment.
