Alpha Phi was founded at Syracuse University by ten of the first nineteen women admitted to the newly opened university. In a thoroughly male-dominated environment, the founders of Alpha Phi had a pressing need for friends who could sympathize with each other’s problems and support each other’s aspirations. For over 100 years, the Tau Chapter has strived to uphold the values of our founders by maintaining a strong sisterhood and serving the Eugene community.

Gamma Phi Beta
At Syracuse University in 1874 Gamma Phi Beta was founded by four women who felt there was not a place for women to come together and support each other while pursuing a higher education. Gamma Phi Beta was founded on the four core values of love, labor, learning, and loyalty and we strive to live up to our mission to inspire the highest type of womanhood. Nu chapter was the first sorority at the University of Oregon and strives to continue its legacy on campus by promoting and inspiring the highest type of womanhood.

Pi Beta Phi
Pi Beta Phi was founded on April 28, 1867, at Monmouth College in Monmouth, Illinois. Our 12 founders had the vision to form the first secret society for women patterned after men’s groups at a time when only five state universities admitted women. These courageous women set the stage for a thriving organization continuing to enrich the lives of many during their collegiate years and beyond. The Oregon Alpha chapter was chartered in 1915 and has remained an integral part of the University of Oregon and Eugene communities.
At Colby College in 1874, the five founders of Sigma Kappa were determined to make a place for women in the collegiate world.

The Alpha Phi chapter has had a long history at the University of Oregon and strives to be a home to women seeking the friendship and values of being a Sigma Kappa woman in addition to working with and serving the community in Eugene.
