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,
Paige Foster

  • 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 the youngest of the sororities on UCM campus but we are the oldest organization nationally among the seven groups.  In 2016 we will be celebrating our 25th Anniversary on the UCM campus.    

 

Philanthropy & Service

Alpha Phi International Fraternity's philanthropic efforts support Alpha Phi Foundation which benefits women's heart health, the #1 killer of women in America. 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 February. 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 2014, the Red Dress Gala was a huge success! We held a delicious dinner, silent auction, and poker tournament. We raised over $7500.00 for Alpha Phi Foundation in February, bring our grand total for the 2013-2014 biennium to over $12,000.00.  Our 2015 Red Dress Gala will be in February so watch for the date to be announced so you can come and enjoy the evening with us.

  • The sisters of Alpha Phi have committed themselves to taking on a major role in this year's Johnson County Heart Walk.  We set our goal high this year and are trying to raise $15000.00 for this great cause.  We encourage all Greek orgainzation to support this great cause on October 4th, 2014.  Form a team and join us in supporting our community and this worth while cause.  If you have questions or would like to support Alpha Phi's effort email us at This email address is being protected from spambots.
