Founding Date

In February 2013, collegians from Cornell (Delta), Boston (Eta), MIT (Zeta Phi), Pennsylvania (Eta Iota) and WPI (Iota Omicron) represented the Fraternity and participated in the first two rounds of formal recruitment on February 2 and February 6. Establishment events took place from February 21-27, complemented by interviews February 21-25. February 28 was a day for the Alpha Phi history books, as the founding members celebrated Bid Day in Cambridge and the first of many milestones to come. 


The Iota Tau chapter of Alpha Phi was officially installed at Harvard University in Cambridge, Massachusetts on April 26, 2013. Initiation took place on Thursday, April 25, 2013 at the Sheraton Commander Hotel. The installation banquet took place the following day, Friday, April 26, 2013 at the Sheraton Commander Hotel with Samantha Lott Hall (Delta Nu-Maine) serving as toastmistress. International President Linda Long Boland (Gamma Kappa-CSU Long Beach) officially welcomed the chapter to Alpha Phi. In the spirit of innovation and compassion, Iota Tau selected Boston Children’s Hospital to receive a $1,000 charitable gift from Alpha Phi Foundation.
