a letter from our
VP of Recruitment
Dear incoming freshman,
Welcome to Oregon State and to the best four years of your life! By the end of the recruitment process you will find your forever home. But most importantly you will find your forever people.
Alpha Phi has truly changed my life. The constant acceptance, support, and special friendship from these women has shaped my college experience. I will forever be grateful for the driven, charismatic, and selfless sisters that Alpha Phi put into my life. We are all so excited that you are here and want to experience this life changing sisterhood too.
The process you are about to endure can be terrifying, moving, and even at times so confusing. My biggest advice that I can give was actually something an Alpha Phi told me, when I was in your same position. Find the chapter where you feel surrounded by women that would push you to be a better version of yourself each and every day. For me, that was Alpha Phi -- and we hope that it is for you too.
It makes my heart full thinking about our community growing this upcoming fall and I am so apprecative of you! I wish you all the very best of luck,
Vice President of Membership Recruitment,
