Statement of Purpose

Pledge
I, a sister of Alpha Gamma Phi do pledge to uphold her principles.
I promise to care for my body and mind for fellowship and loyalty to strive.
I am to love my fellow woman as I do each sorority sister.
Through love I will serve; my help from God, who gives me the strength to succeed.
I promise to thee, Alpha Phi, through thee may my life be enriched, that this, my pledge may be fulfilled.

Prayer
Our Heavenly Father,
We thank Thee for Thy great love for us.
May it so fill our lives that through love we may form deep and lasting friendships.
Refresh our bodies an alert our minds, we pray, that through willing service we may attain our goals.
All this we ask in faith and the assurance that we can do all things through Him who strengthens us.

Creed
We believe that friendship is the anchor of our strength.
We believe that through this strength we can use our bodies and minds to uphold the principles for which we stand.
We believe that through fellowship, one with another, we can attain our purposes, the motivating force of our lives as a sorority.
We believe that our lives can manifest service and love to all as we place our faith in God.
Thus, we look to Alpha Gamma Phi, our sorority, as an anchoring root for which we are strengthened for a richer and fuller life.

Pack Light

The journey of life is about choices and routes. I am glad I chose the route of Alpha Phi. I have learned through Alpha Phi I can pack light and be myself: facades and masks have no room in Alpha Phi because my road is long and the journey tiring. With the help of my sisters I have cast aside my shortcomings and packed my bags with unconditional acceptance and love. All we need is one another to make it through the various bumps and bruises along the way. Alpha Phi is a road of its own and if you are searching for a great adventure, pack your bags...because Alpha Phi will take you there.

With love,
