Alumnae Perspective

Alumnae Sisterhood Events
By: Lori Losee (Beta Rho-Washington State)

As the summer is coming to an end, it’s that time again to reminisce your time in college and all of your Alpha Phi experiences. A great way is by planning alumnae events with your sisters from your chapter or new Alpha Phis you have met over the years.

Planning events with your fellow Alpha Phi sisters is something to treasure and even can be turned into a yearly tradition.

Turning a fun girls’ weekend into an annual tradition is something I'm a big fan of. Since 2005 I, along with several of my Beta Rho sisters, wanted a way to connect with one another away from our busy jobs and crazy lives. Our first trip started with a weekend in Portland followed up two years later to a trip to Seattle and then to San Francisco and then a trip to California’s wine country.

If a weekend trip isn’t possible, day trips or even a meal at a restaurant is a great way to reconnect with your fellow sisters.

Other fun activities that could be turned into monthly or quarterly events include a Scrapbooking Night, Bunko Night, Wine Night, or start an Alpha Phi bowling team.

No matter what the event is, it’s this time you spend with your Alpha Phi sisters that is the most important thing you can do.
