Alpha Epsilon Phi was founded by seven Jewish women at Barnard College in New York on October 24, 1909. This sorority would endeavor to foster lifelong friendship and sisterhood, academics, social involvement and community service, all the while providing a home away from home for its members. The dream that was born in a dorm room at Barnard College in 1909 continues to succeed, prosper and thrive on over 50 college and university campuses nationwide. Alpha Epsilon Phi welcomes with open arms hundreds of new members each year and seeks not only to live up to the ideals and goals of its original founders, but also to exceed them.

The Beta Zeta Chapter of Alpha Epsilon Phi was founded at The University of Central Florida in 2006. Since then, we have built a reputation and sisterhood that is undeniably impactful on not only our members but also The University of Central Florida as a whole. Our sisters pride themselves on all of our accomplishments, such as winning chapter of the year in 2017 and being the highest fundraisers for Knight-Thon and Pack to Attack. As members of the Beta Zeta chapter, we all strive to continue the vision that our founding members found to be so important. We see our commitment to community service and philanthropy, academic success, and leadership as highest priority to ensure that each member is able to be the best version of herself. Being a part of our chapter, to us, means so much more than just a collegiate experience. It is a lifetime of friendships, memories, and support.

President’s Message

Coming from South Florida and being far away from my family I knew that attending college I would need to find a place to call home. I grew up playing on a travel soccer team with whom my teammates were my support system, and group of friends that I always counted on. That being said, going to college I never imagined finding another large group of girls that would have such a huge impact of my life. I then decided to go through recruitment and try to find my place at the university. The day I opened my bid day card and saw it read Alpha Epsilon Phi my heart filled with so much joy. I couldn’t have been more excited to run home to around 200 women with whom I now call my sisters. If you told me 2 years ago as a freshman that I would be president of a sorority I would have never believed you. Now, as the President of the Beta Zeta Chapter of Alpha Epsilon Phi, I could not be more thankful for everything these women have given me. AEPhi has brought me endless amount of support, love, friendships, and a push in the right direction to lead me to success.
I couldn’t be more proud of my chapter for being the strong, dedicated, and independent group of women that they are. Although we are all different in our own ways we all find a strong love with in AEPhi. We continuously live by the three values that AEPhi sets forth for its members–unconditional friendships, selfless service, and inspiring others.
