New Sorority Approved

Dartmouth will soon add a new chapter of the national sorority Alpha Phi to its Panhellenic community. "Last spring, when I asked the Board of Trustees to end the moratorium on establishing new Greek organizations, I hoped that we would be able to attract an outstanding sorority to campus," says Dean of the College James Larimore. "Alpha Phi will be a wonderful addition to the College's Greek system."

A group of Dartmouth students worked with the College's Coed, Fraternity, and Sorority (CFS) system in selecting a national organization that would provide the best fit for Dartmouth.

Alpha Phi was founded in 1872 at Syracuse University, its mission: to provide a network of support for women seeking higher education at a time when they were discouraged from doing so. It has been a national sorority since 1881.
