Alpha Phi Fraternity was founded in 1872 by ten forward thinking women at Syracuse University, Alpha Phi is now one of the oldest and largest women's fraternities in North America.

Alpha Phis are members of a lifelong sisterhood. Our keystone is friendship – warm, simple and sincere. In Alpha Phi, there is encouragement, understanding and opportunities to grow. With members all over the world, and collegiate and alumnae chapters throughout the United States and Canada, our sisterhood knows no boundaries.

Alpha Phi is a sisterhood of outstanding women supporting one another in lifelong achievement.

This organization assists college women in making informed choices to reach their highest potential. Alpha Phi enhances and promotes each member's development and learning by focusing on sisterhood, service, scholarship, leadership, loyalty and character development.

The Theta Upsilon chapter of Alpha Phi at Chico State was founded in 1994 and currently has around 150 members. Our chapter holds women that are dedicated, driven, and hardworking members that are actively involved in our chapter, school, and community.

Alpha Phi Theta Upsilon Chapter is proud to have 2 Chapter houses blocks away from our university campus.


Our first chapter house is on 3rd and Chestnut and our newest chapter house is on 4th street. A total of 32 girls combined get to live in one of our chapter houses.


Getting to live in one of the chapter houses is an amazing opportunity to grow close bonds and share everlasting memories with our sisters.




Since our founding, innovation has been one of the cornerstones of Alpha Phi and of our leaders.  Alpha Phis work hard to enact positive change.



Alpha Phis cherish life-long friendships rooted in kindness, love and respect for one another. We believe in the concept of Watchcare - a tenet of our sisterhood which encourages support of one another through the good times and the bad, whether helping one another with academics or providing much needed support during a rough time.


Alpha Phi fosters the qualities of strong character that distinguish our members and our sisterhood, including compassion, integrity and sincerity. In Alpha Phi, all members learn to lead by example through their actions and communication. They set expectations high for themselves and each other, and strive diligently to meet them.
