Alpha Phi Beta Chapter was founded at Northwestern University in 1881, nine years after the first chapter was founded at Syracuse University.
Our chapter has 130 members, 46 of whom currently live in the house, who hold leadership roles within Alpha Phi and across campus. Our members are on the executive boards of Northwestern Dance Marathon, Northwestern News Network, Northwestern Community Development Corps, Northwestern Sketch Television, and more. While we put a priority on campus involvement, our chapter continues to strive academically. On top of having one of the top 5 GPAs of all Alpha Phi chapters across the globe, our chapter GPA is also higher than the Northwestern campus average.
With an increasing emphasis on merit-based and need-based scholarships, we are constantly trying to expand the inclusivity of our chapter and help our members as best we can. In addition to helping our own members, we spend a lot of our time and energy helping others. Our Red Dress Gala raised over $15,000 this year for the Alpha Phi Foundation. The Alpha Phi Foundation donates money for women's heart health research, sets up scholarships for sisters in need, and works to increase awareness of heart disease. Alpha Phi Beta Chapter exemplifies the values of sisterhood, scholarship, and service.
