Over 90 years after the founding of Alpha Epsilon Phi, the Duke chapter still upholds the aims and ideals of the original founders of Alpha Epsilon Phi, as reflected in this quote from one of the original seven, Tina Hess Solomon, in 1934:

"We wanted a group of girls chosen not because of any special scholastic preeminence, financial circumstances or other arbitrary standards, but a group who had common interests and were dominated by the ideals of true friendship."

What makes Alpha Epsilon Phi unique is the encouragement given to sisters to make the most of their college experience. There is no "typical" AEPhi, unless you consider diversity a "typical" quality. You can see this diversity in our membership and leadership in campus groups ranging from Duke Drama to House Council, from Mock Trial to the Ultimate Frisbee team, from Marching Band to Chorale, from Catholic Student Center to Hillel.

The sisters of AEPhi are diverse, but our diversity all stems from a common source — the encouragement and support the sorority gives to us to achieve our personal goals. Individual aspirations combined with the common goals of Alpha Epsilon Phi are ultimately expressed in our open motto: "Many Hearts, One Purpose."
