A LETTER FROM OUR PRESIDENT
Welcome to the Rho Chapter of Alpha Epsilon Phi at The Ohio State University. With our newly designed website, we hope you enjoy and browse through all of the wonderful things our sisters have accomplished this year!
My name is Sydney Abelow and I am the current president of Rho Chapter. Having the opportunity to lead these unique and amazing women has been an amazing honor and experience of a life time. AEPhi has provided me with more than just friendships, it has allowed me to grow relationships with women not only in this chapter, but in other chapters around the country. Going to multiple leadership conventions, and learning about the history of our organization has provided me with great insight and helped me grow as an individual. Working closely with knowledgeable AEPhi alumni is an opportunity most members do not get, but it has taught me more about myself and this organization than I ever thought I would know. Alpha Epsilon Phi has truly impacted my life for the better and I will forever be grateful for the opportunities it has given me and the people I have met from being a part of this organization.
This past year, we held our annual Red Week consisting of different fundraising events each day with all efforts going to the Elizabeth Glaser Pediatric Aids Foundation (EGPAF). As well as Phi Trotters, our annual basketball tournament held in the spring semester to raise money for Sharsheret, an organization which supports individuals and their families who have been impacted by cancer.
Each month, our calendar is filled with activities, socials, and sisterhood events just for our chapter. A few examples from the past year included, apple picking, renting out a movie theatre just for our members, attending OSU Football games, and had an in-house fun night with snacks and different bonding activities.
At Ohio State, formal recruitment takes place at the beginning of the Spring Semester, so in a few weeks, we will be welcoming 65-75 new members into our home!
Thank you for taking the time to look at and enjoy everything our chapter has to love and share!
