When Alpha Phi sisters graduate, we adopt new roles as lawyers, doctors, consultants, businesswomen, architects... the list is endless, but we are always Alpha Phi sisters. Our seven hundred plus alumnae compose the largest alumnae network of any MIT sorority. While some alumnae act as mentors to current sisters, others are involved as members of the House Corporation Board and actively help to upkeep and improve our house.
There are various events and opportunities to meet and interact with alumnae throughout the year. During philanthropy events or just times when they are in town, alumnae visit our house for dinner and networking opportunities. Every spring, we host a weekend-long reunion for all alumnae. We keep our alumnae updated via newsletters highlighting current sisters' community service, sports achievements, and summer or IAP accomplishments every semester.

"Alpha Phi is the main reason I was happy at MIT. I loved living in the house and being surrounded by girls who are not only extremely driven and intelligent but also fun, dynamic, and kind. My best memories from MIT are with my sisters, who I know will remain my best friends throught the rest of my life."

Class of 2007
"I joined Alpha Phi to be part of a community that would support me and that I could contribute to. I learned how to help run an organization, solve conflicts, and lead meetings while being on Aphi's Executive Board. After helping run a sorority, I can easily run a physics experiment! Aphi also showed me the value of friendship and balancing work with fun and social time. My sisters still inspire me and help me in life - I even keep our composite picture over my desk at work"

Class of 2006
"I joined Aphi in hopes of finding some good friends. I could never have anticipated the incredible people I would meet and what kind of lasting friendships I would make. Each sister was so unique and had such gifts, whether it was sports, dance, public service, etc... I was truly inspired to be a better person because of all the amazing people that Aphi gave me the opportunity to be close to and call my sister. Sounds cheesy but its true!"

Class of 1996
"Alpha Phi has made me who I am today. I still in very close contact with a ton of sisters and we share incredible life journeys together. All MIT Alpha Phi's are making huge contributions to the world today. We are an incredible group of women: smart, strong, leaders and do-ers! My experience of being a leader in Alpha Phi, gave me the confidence and leadership skills that I use day to day I would not change a single thing about my college career and being an A-phi was the highlight."

Class of 1996
"I was excited about A Phi beginning with my "pre-frosh" visit during my senior year of high school! The A Phi girls that I met were the most social, fun, put-together and impressive young ladies that I met on campus. When I arrived at MIT in the fall and got to know more of the sisters I knew that I wanted be a part of this supportive, impressive and fun group. Through Alpha Phi I was able to live with wonderful friends in our fantastic house in a great neighborhood - what an incredible opportunity for a young college student. (Also, my parents were NOT impressed by MIT's overcrowded dorms at the time - they were thrilled about my moving to the house.) Alpha Phi was a perfect support system for the rigors of the MIT environment and I made dear friends that I will keep for a lifetime."
