Alpha Phi has helped shape me into the woman I am today. Since joining in 1983 and attending my first leadership training in 1985, Alpha Phis have been my mentors, role models and some of my dearest friends. I give back to Alpha Phi because I believe in the impact we have on our members and the role we can play in making each member her best self.

Linda Schnetzer

(Beta Omicron-Bowling Green), Major Gifts Officer

In Alpha Phi, I have found true role models and my best friends. Since the beginning, our membership has been comprised of truly inspirational leaders—women ahead of their time whose bold ideas have impacted thousands of women and given them the space and support they need to fulfill their potential. Today, single-sex organizations are under attack, and it is important that we work together to ensure the future of our Fraternity.
