At a time when society looked upon women only as daughters, wives, and mothers and therefore, not in need of higher education, our ten founders were pioneers of the coeducational system. These women formed Alpha Phi in 1872 at Syracuse University. Today, the sisterhood of Alpha Phi stretches from coast to coast through 172 collegiate campuses and more than 200,000 members.
Eta Epsilon was founded at Villanova University im 1987, and has since been a strong chapter that stands by our six values: sisterhood, service, scholarship, leadership, loyalty and character development.

As an organization, Alpha Phi works together with the Alpha Phi Foundation to raise money for women's health and cardiac care. Our mission statement, taken from the Alpha Phi Foundation's website, is to advance women's lives through the power of philanthropy.
In the past three years, our chapter has been rewarded Top Eastern Quadrant Donor to the Alpha Phi Foundation. In the 2018-2019 school year, we raised $30,959.87, totaling our lifetime giving to $214,066.16. This money donated to the Alpha Phi Foundation has gone towards cardiac research, women’s educational grants and scholarships, and leadership trainings and programs. We are proud to make such an impact on an incredible organization.
