Alpha Phi is pleased to announce plans to colonize
at University of Ottawa in Ottawa, Ontario. The invitation to
colonize was extended by Kappa Zeta Psi, a local sorority wishing to
affiliate with an NPC organization, and was accepted by the Alpha Phi
extension team after a unanimous positive vote from Alpha
Phi's International Executive Board. Alpha Phi will be joining
the Ottawa fraternity and sorority campus community in winter 2014.
"Along with the similarities in regards to values and the sisterhood, we believe that Alpha Phi can provide a great platform for the change and development of not only our chapter, but of the Greek Community as a whole," stated Raechelle Joseph, President of Kappa Zeta Psi. "Your strong Canadian presence is also something that truly excites and motivates us greatly, especially in regards to remaining involved well after our collegiate years."
The members of Kappa Zeta Psi at the University of Ottawa will receive invitations to join Alpha Phi as part of the colonization process, and will be the core of the founding new member class of Alpha Phi's newest chapter at uOttawa. Alpha Phi will also welcome other outstanding women at the university who are not already affiliated with an NPC organization into its founding membership.
One of Canada's top ten research institutions, University of Ottawa is the largest bilingual university in the world. Located in Ottawa, Canada's capital city, within walking distance of Parliament Hill, the university is home to about 200 undergraduate programs and over 185 graduate programs.
