Fun Facts

1. Alpha Phi was the first women's society to use Greek letters as an emblem

2. Alpha Phi is pronounced Alpha "fee" (long "e") not "fie," because a Syracuse Greek professor informed the founding sisters that it was the correct Greek pronunciation

3. Decorate bears instead of paddles because their symbol is the Phi Bear​
