A note from the President
It is my pleasure to give you a warm welcome to the Beta Alpha Chapter of Alpha Epsilon Phi at Emerson College! I present to you my fellow sisters with beaming pride and encourage you to take a look around our website, as there is much to learn about our cherished sisterhood. I hope we can offer you some understanding of the magical bond we share!
Initially founded on October 24th, 1909 by six forward-thinking jewish women at Barnard College in New York, Alpha Epsilon Phi now provides a home away from home for almost 100 other chapters across the country. Regarding our particular chapter, I am excited and honored to be leading 48 sisters this year as we work under our values of friendship, philanthropy, and personal development to make Emerson College a better place. I joined AEPHI in the spring of 2018 and could not have asked for a better group of women to sweep me off my feet and help me become a stronger, more confident woman. If you are considering joining AEPHI, I have no doubt in my mind that this organization will be one of the most rewarding experiences of your life.
Not only do my sisters provide unconditional friendship, (and a lot of goofiness in between) but they also work tirelessly every semester to accomplish incredible things through our two philanthropy organizations: The Elizabeth Glaser Pediatric Aids Foundation (EGPAF), and Sharsheret, an organization that provides support to Jewish women with breast cancer and their families. Our beloved annual fashion show, Ribbons on the Runway, raised over $8000 last year alone for Sharsheret! Ribbons on the Runway was founded 16 years ago at our very own chapter (and has since inspired other chapters to do the same) and we hope to raise even more money this year!
Although my sisters are dedicated in working together under united values, we also cherish personal development and the importance of being unique, independent women. Sisters are extremely involved in other organizations on campus that cater to their passions and talents such as athletics, performing arts, debate, Best Buddies, on-campus production teams, and much more.
We take Alpha Epsilon Phi and its core values very seriously, but the personalities of my sisters are anything but serious. The goofiness, humor, and huge hearts of these people are what gets me through the day and constantly make me more proud than ever to be their President. I hope you are just as dazzled by Emerson AEPhi as I am. The way we inspire each other every day urges me to share with your our motto-- many hearts, one purpose.
