Letter from the President

Welcome to Manitoba Alpha Phi!


Beta Eta chapter was founded in 1928 by young women who shared the common values of academic excellence, community service and sisterhood. 


For me, joining Alpha Phi was the easiest decision I ever had to make; it was like coming home. In my sisters I found true friendship and sisterhood. In service I became more involved in my community, and fundraised more than I ever thought was possible. Weekly study dates helped me stay on top of assignments and gave me the chance to excel in my classes. I look at my sisters around me and find strong, educated women who are all superstars in their own right, who take pride in achieving our high ideals. I honestly don’t know what I’d do without them. 


University lasts 4 years, but this sisterhood? It’s a lifetime. Come explore your potential –  no matter what you’re looking for, come find your home in Alpha Phi. 


I invite you to explore our website and get a sense of our history, sisterhood, philanthropy, campus involvement, leadership opportunities, meet our members and find the latest recruitment information.


I am honoured to be part of this organization, and to lead the Beta Eta chapter during the 2017 calendar year.


If you have any questions, please feel free to contact us.


Kind regards,


Catherine Lavigne
