Alpha Phi to Join Greek Community at Carnegie Mellon


Alpha Phi is thrilled to join the Greek community at Carnegie Mellon University for Fall 2012.  Alpha Phi presented to the sorority and fraternity community in late April and felt an instant kinship with the campus community.  We will join Alpha Chi Omega, Delta Gamma, Delta Delta Delta, Kappa Alpha Theta and Kappa Kappa Gamma on this prestigious Pittsburgh campus.


Alpha Phi entered into the extension process with a firm knowledge of what it is like to be a student at a comparable institution.  The Fraternity calls several of CMU's fellow University Athletic Association schools home - Washington University, Case Western Reserve University and University of Rochester - along with several peer schools like Cornell, Duke, Georgia Tech, MIT, Northwestern and RPI.


Carnegie Mellon University is a private institution founded in 1900. It has a total undergraduate enrollment of 6,108. Carnegie Mellon University, founded by industrialist and philanthropist Andrew Carnegie, is located in Pittsburgh.


Carnegie Mellon is known for its programs in science and technology, but its seven schools and colleges include a College of Fine Arts and College of Humanities and Social Sciences. U.S. News and World Report  ranked CMU #23 among National Universities for 2012.


CMU's formal recruitment takes place in late September, and Alpha Phi's colonization will be held October 4-10.  Carnegie Mellon University joins 157 collegiate campuses in the United States and Canada that established Alpha Phi chapters call home.
