University of Central Missouri | Theta Lambda Chapter


About Us


On behalf of the Theta Lambda chapter of Alpha Phi, I welcome you to our website! Here at the University of Central Missouri, Alpha Phi takes great pride in being a part of the Greek community and strives for excellence through philanthropy, service, scholarship, leadership, campus involvement, and sisterhood.  Being a sorority woman means having the ability to impact generations of women to come, and I find that exhilarating.Words cannot begin to describe my incredible experience as an Alpha Phi at UCM and I am honored to represent this outstanding group of women as their Chapter President. One of the greatest feelings throughout my college experience has been to know that I am a part of something much bigger than myself and I can honestly say through Alpha Phi, my life has truly been enriched.

We are so excited that you are interested in our chapter and we welcome any questions that you may have!

Loyally in Alpha Phi,

Erin Stanley

  • Our chapter, Theta Lambda, at the University of Central Missouri was installed in 1991 as Alpha Phi's 179th installed chapter . As of spring 2014 Alpha Phi has installed 212 chapters on campuses throughout the United States and Canada. We maybe one of the youngest sororities at UCM but we are the oldest organization nationally among the seven groups. We are located on the ground floor of the Panhellenic building at the south side of campus. We boast a gorgeous chapter room comprised of a formal and informal living room and a hall that houses some of our finest sisters! In 2016, we will be celebrating our 25th Anniversary on the UCM campus.    
  • Alpha Phi International Fraternity, and the Theta Lambda chapter of Alpha Phi at the University of Central Missouri, believe there are many beneficial aspects of being a member of Alpha Phi:

    •  Academics: Our members take academics very seriously, which shows through in our scholarship program. We support your daughter's vision to excel and to be a leader in and out of the classroom. We hope to foster your daughter's creativity and drive in all aspects of her collegiate experience.

    • Commitment: At Alpha Phi, we are committed to your daughter's membership experience. Our Founders’ vision was to create a women's organization based on sisterhood, scholarship and service. Today, we still hold these values in all that we do, and to each member.
    •  Sisterhood: The bonds of friendship formed in Alpha Phi tie our members together for a lifetime, not just for college. It is these friendships formed that lead to smiles, laughter, tears and ultimately, the unforgettable memories your daughter will make. In Alpha Phi, it is the individual that makes the difference in the experience - and a collection of brilliant individuals leads to the experience of a lifetime.

    •  Watchcare: This is a concept that began with our Founders, who bonded together to support each other for mutual growth. Watchcare has three components: the preservation of human dignity, risk management and the development of solid values and ethics to help our members make appropriate decisions. This offers the foundation for our members that hand in hand we will stay safe and grow to meet our highest potential.
    • Tradition: Alpha Phi was founded by ten women, and when these women were denied entrance into men's fraternities, they decided to create their own and begin a path of sisterhood and friendship. At Alpha Phi, we uphold the traditions started by these ten remarkable women. While we live in the present, our past traditions bind us all together

    We are currently in the process of planning future events like Mom's Weekend, Dad's Weekend and other great events. If you have any questions of suggestions please do not hesitate to contact our Alumni/Parent Relations Chair, Kenzie Van Maele at This email address is being protected from spambots.

Philanthropy & Service

Alpha Phi International Fraternity's philanthropic efforts support Alpha Phi Foundation which benefits women's heart health. The University of Central Missouri Alpha Phis host an annual Red Dress Gala, which is an enchanting evening where parents and community members gather together to enjoy a dinner and silent auction. Thousands of dollars are donated each year to support women's heart health awareness and education, and we are looking forward to raising the bar again this coming year.

Alpha Phi also has a strong passion for donating time to our local community and giving back to those in need through service. This year, a major focus for Alpha Phi will be the Johnson County Heart Walk in support of heart health awareness in our local Warrensburg community. You'll find the Alpha Phis volunteering, cheering on the participants from the sidelines, or walking to the finish line side-by-side!

  • Red Dress Gala is Alpha Phi's annual dinner and silent auction philanthropy event, held during the month of April. Families, friends and alumnae are invited to enjoy an elegant evening of food, drink and fun.  All proceeds from Red Dress Gala benefit Alpha Phi Foundation.

    In 2015, the Red Dress Gala was a huge success! We were able to raise over six thousand dollars for the Alpha Phi Foundation in silent auction items, ticket sales, and a fifty fifty raffle! We also were able to welcome Marcia McCoy, the director of Muriel Kauffman Women's Heart Center in Kansas City who gave a stunning presentation about what Alpha Phi has done for the facility Kansas City women's cardiac patients call home. We are very pleased with all the lovely faces that attended and we cannot wait until our 2016 Red Dress Gala coming up in February.





Members of Alpha Phi recognize the importance of using their collegiate years to gain valuable leadership experience. Our members hold many leadership positions within our chapter that guide and govern our members. These roles allow our chapter officers the opportunity to become a leader among their peers. Many members of our chapter are also involved in activities outside of Alpha Phi that will help shape their future success. Year-round, our chapter members participate in internships and jobs, volunteering, study abroad opportunities, and clubs and student organizations.

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 that you will have for life.

You can find more information about the Univrsity of Central Missouri Greek Life and recruitment process at

Beginning on Bid Day, Alpha Phi quickly works to integrate our new members into our chapter. We view our new member program as a journey into our sisterhood that is tailored to each new member we receive. We match each new member with a member of the chapter to be their “Ivy Linker,” who acts as the new member’s introduction to the chapter and assures that each new member is comfortable in their new home in Alpha Phi!

During the Ivy Linker program, you will find the perfect sister to call your Big. During Big/Little Week, you will be showered with surprises and clues from your secret Big Sister, who reveals herself to you during Big/Little reveal. As a perfect ending to the excitement of Big/Little week, we hold Initiation week, where you will learn all about our Ritual and officially become a sister of Alpha Phi!

During this exciting period, you will attend weekly New Member Meetings, in which you will not only get to know your new sisters, but also your new chapter! Sisterhood events, retreats, and bonding are just the start of your amazing experience as an Alpha Phi! We look forward to meeting you during Formal Recruitment, and hope that we will soon be able to call you our sister!
