The sisters of Alpha Phi welcome you to meet us this year during Formal Recruitment! We are excited to give you a glimpse into what our chapter is all about – scholarship, service, leadership, character development and a genuine sisterhood. Here at Alpha Phi, you will find your home away from home and a remarkable support system of sisters that will be there through your college journey and beyond.
Encouragement from our VP of Membership Recruitment
Dear Class of 2025,
I just want to say congrats on calling the University of Utah your home for the next four years! I am so pumped that you are here reading this because that means you’re considering going Greek. The Greek life community here at the U is such a great way to get involved on campus and can add so much value to your college experience. There is so much power within an ambitious group of women who seek to build each other up and inspire each other to achieve amazing things.
We look to fill our chapter with women who work hard, and who want to get involved, and lift our chapter up beyond itself. These are the things that make our sisterhood so special. We are so excited to find more amazing and empowered women to join, lead, and live our high ideals of Alpha Phi; which are sisterhood, generosity, high expectations for character, and a drive for innovation.
I know I speak not only for myself, but for the entire Beta Sigma chapter here at the U when I say we are so stoked to meet and get to know you this fall during formal recruitment. I remember being nervous to go through recruitment because I had no idea what to expect, but it is actually so fun. My biggest piece of advice is to not stress, be your most authentic self, and have fun throughout the process — the rest will follow. Wherever your recruitment experience takes you, Alpha Phi supports you and we are so excited to see what you accomplish during your time at the U. We cannot wait to meet you and show you what being an Alpha Phi is all about!
Love and AOE,
Rush Quick Tips
Be confident and be yourself!
Alpha Phi is looking for unique, genuine members. We want to see your true personality shine! Recruitment is about finding the place to call home. The week is much easier, and you will feel most at home by being your true self.
Make new friends!
College is such an exciting experience and is different from high school. It is so easy to remain close with your friends from high school, but we encourage you to also make friendships during the recruitment process. Most of these women will be joining the Panhellenic community with you as well!
Keep an open mind!
Remember that you are choosing a house for yourself, not anyone else. When going to each house and talking to the members, look for a place where you feel comfortable. The house you choose will be your home away from home for the next four years!
