Alpha Phi International Fraternity officially welcomed its seventh Canadian chapter at the University of Ottawa on Saturday, March 29. The events kicked off with the arrival of International President Linda Long Boland (Gamma Kappa-CSU Long Beach), and new chapter members escorted her on a tour of Canada’s capitol. Court of Ivy was held on campus Friday evening. Initiation ceremonies were held at the Ottawa Marriott on Saturday morning, and a banquet followed in the hotel’s ballroom. In addition to more than 50 collegiate charter members, the chapter welcomed nine alumnae initiates: six mothers and three Kappa Zeta Psi alumnae. The weekend served as both recognition for the contributions of the Kappa Zeta Psi local sorority and the celebration of their transition to becoming an Alpha Phi chapter. Also participating in the weekend’s festivities were Extension Team Lead Ashley Haugh (Xi-Toronto), Fraternity Executive Director Linda Wells Kahangi (Zeta Delta-Iowa State) and former International Executive Board Director Monica Kennedy Monczka (Xi-Toronto).
