Alpha Phi? There's an App for That!


It’s no secret: in the Panhellenic Community, Alpha Phi has always been on the cutting edge of technology. In 1996, Alpha Phi was the first member of the National Panhellenic Conference (NPC) to launch a Website. Over the past 15 years, our organization has shaped an entirely new online experience for our members: an innovative webpage for a personalized Alpha Phi experience, a user-friendly mobile site for accessing Alpha Phi on-the-go, and lastly, a social media platform for real-time communication and the most up-to-date information. And in August of 2010, we checked another social media milestone off of our list: the Alpha Phi Facebook Application.

The Official Alpha Phi Facebook App serves as a home for groups connected by collegiate chapter, alumnae chapter, or common interests. Members can share personal announcements and upcoming events, submit pictures, join discussion groups and message boards, and search for sisters on Facebook.

Under the discussion tab you will find a thread for job and internship opportunities, topics for undergraduate members regarding chapter practices and ideas, conversation about alumnae events and opportunities, and even recommended reading.

Once you’ve signed up, you can refer the App to your friends to earn points. If you’re interested in scoring free Alpha Phi merchandise, just help us spread the word by inviting your Alpha Phi chapter or network and visiting the application on a frequent basis. Each day that you access the application earns you 25 Alpha Phi points. For every Alpha Phi friend you invite, you’ll receive 100 points. The higher your number, the more likely you are to win Alpha Phi give-a-ways!

All of this is just one click away. Log onto your Facebook account today and add the App by clicking on the “Network” tab, or follow the link below:
