Upon becoming a member of Alpha Phi, your sisters are more than just friends, they are a life-long family. Sisterhood is the inclusion of every individual and the unconditional support of your sisters, continuing far beyond your college years.
The Zeta Gamma chapter has women from all over the country and even the world. Representing all aspects of campus, we have members with diverse interests and areas of study. Our 180 members include student government presidents, club founders and leaders, engineers, a long history of Orientation Leaders, club sports athletes, theater superstars, admission office Student Ambassadors, immersion trip participants, future doctors, study abroad explorers, certified fitness instructors, entrepreneurs, and overall well-rounded young women.
Zeta Gamma is committed to service in our surrounding community as well as the greater Bay Area. Whether it is volunteering with the Markkula Fund for Children, being involved with Santa Clara Community Action Program (SCCAP), or even just picking up trash on Bellomy Street, our members have immersed themselves is a variety of service opportunities. In the Fall of 2015, Zeta Gamma was also proud to host our first annual Volunteer in Philanthropy themed semi. This has become an annual event and something that the women of Zeta Gamma look forward to participating in every year.
What’s one of the best parts about being a member of a sorority? The amount of academic help you can get just from reaching out to your sisters. With members representing every school on campus and a wide variety of majors, you can always rely on other Alpha Phis for tutoring, class and professor advice, and purchasing and selling old textbooks.
During each finals week, the chapter gives sisters green books and Scantrons, transforms the chapter room into a study room, provides some sort of free food, and hosts stress-relieving activities like a kickboxing class at the house.
Zeta Gamma has not just one, but two next-door houses, known to the Santa Clara community as Silver and Bordeaux. Sisters can live-in as early as sophomore year and certain members of the Executive Board live-in during their term.
Members can be found watching movies on the Big Red Couch (BRC) in Silver, baking cookies in the kitchen of Bordeaux, or laying out in the sun in the grassy front yards. Nine Zeta Gamma members reside in Silver while six women call Bordeaux their home.
