Welcome to the official website of Kentucky Alpha Phi! My name is Erin Sparks and I’m the 2017 president of the Iota Nu chapter. It's my honor and privilege to represent the outstanding women of Alpha Phi… We are accomplished leaders on our campus, high achieving students in our classrooms and dedicated servants to our community.
Alpha Phi International stretches from coast to coast with 170 chapters and over 200,000 members. Founded in 1872, Alpha Phi is one of the oldest and largest women’s fraternities. The innovative leadership of Alpha Phi's Founders set the spirit for the Alpha Phi of today-- A sisterhood that values the past but looks forward to the progress of the future. As an organization deeply rooted in tradition, Alpha Phi strives for the highest standards. Sisterhood, scholarship, service, leadership, loyalty and character development are the 6 values that we live by.
When I received my bid in August of 2014 and ran home to 417 Columbia Avenue, I knew these women would be there for every triumph and every failure in college and beyond. The love we share in the sisterhood of Alpha Phi is steadfast and pure... It's the backbone of every experience I've had in college. It’s been the challenge of holding myself to higher standards, the support to reach my most far fetched dreams and the comfort of being myself in the presence of people who love me for who I am. Alpha Phi has molded me into the woman I am today and I will forever be thankful.
As you begin your 4 years as a collegiate woman, I encourage you to find friends to challenge you, a home to be yourself and values to live by. I encourage you to use these next 4 years as a time to surround yourself with people who push you to learn, achieve and lead. I am so thankful that I found those people in Alpha Phi.
We hope you enjoy getting a glimpse into the life of Kentucky Alpha Phi and we wish you all the best!
