Involvement: The sisters of Alpha Epsilon Phi's favorite fall event is the ribbons on the runway. This is a pageant type event where different teams create looks and walk down the runway! This event is hosted in October and the proceeds go to their philanthropy Sharsheret, which helps women with breast cancer. Another event that the AEPHI sisters love is their annual retreat. This is a day filled with bonding events, which really connects the sisters as an entire chapter. And the beloved paddle pass occurs at this event!
Sisterhood: The phams of AEPhi really define their sisterhood. Each phamily is extremely close, and loves showing off their custom sweatshirts with different patterns on the AEPhi letters. Even when sisters have graduated, every year they love coming back and seeing the newest addition to their lineage. The best pictures are the 7 person long chains starting from the gggbig going all the way down to the little.
Words from the Chapter President: "I wouldn't be where I am today without the Phi Chi Chapter of AEPhi at the University of Delaware. I am so proud to be apart of a community of women who strive to become the best versions of themselves through philanthropic efforts, leadership, and friendship. I am constantly blown away by the women in my chapter's passion, and dedication to creating a special sisterhood."
-Barrie Berger, Chapter President
HEAR IT FROM THE SISTERS:
"AEPhi has given me an unbelievable support system and has made a huge campus so much more comfortable. Walking to the room in recruitment, I felt the warmth from every sister and that has only continued since. I get smiles from every sister when passing on campus. I truly couldn’t have found a better sisterhood."
-Shayna Moses, UDance Committee
"When I was a new member of AEPhi, I didn't have any friends in my member class. It was difficult for me the first couple of days, but I immediately met my BEST FRIENDS to this day within the first few weeks. This chapter is so warm and welcoming to all new members and from the start of bid day, starts fostering new member relationships. The panhellenic community at UD is so supportive and uplifting of all greek life chapters and I was ecstatic that I got to represent AEPhi here as our VP Panhellenic Delegate. AEPhi has given me THE college experience and I would 100 percent not be the strong sorority woman I am today without this chapter and my sisters."
-Maddie Ives, VP Panhellenic Delegate
