In Alpha Epsilon Phi, we believe that friendship is the most important part of a sorority. That's why we have "sister lunch" twice a week on campus, dinners at sisters' apartments on Central Campus, and often get together for spur of the moment outings to the movies, bowling, and shopping, just to name a few. We also have two semi-formals and one formal a year, plus numerous mixers, parties, and date functions.
Alpha Epsilon Phi, both nationally and here at Duke, participates in many philanthropic endeavors. Our national philanthropies are the Elizabeth Glaser Pediatric AIDS Foundation (founded by AEPhi Elizabeth Glaser) and Chaim Sheba Medical Center in Tel-Hashomer, Israel. Our chapter holds fundraisers each year to raise money for these philanthropies, including our "54" disco party in the fall benefitting Pediatric AIDS.
One of the many benefits of membership in AEPhi is the close feeling of sisterhood shared by the members a bond that lasts through the college days and beyond college into alumnae years. The support and stability offered by sisterhood and AEPhi are often a welcome relief from the hectic and demanding schedule of college life.
