Beta Iota Chapter Installed at Stanford University

On Friday, May 28, 2010, the Beta Iota Chapter at Stanford University became Alpha Epsilon Phi’s 104th chartered chapter.  The seven founding sisters of Beta Iota, Marissa Cramer, Sara Farahani, Libby Greismann, Allison Payne, Dania Shor, Jennifer Simons and Molly Weiss, shared a similar vision to our founders – to form a club to share common interests that would be dominated by the ideals of true friendship and to be a home for Jewish women on their campus.  In Fall 2007, these seven women took the challenge of starting something new and formed the AEPhi Colony at Stanford.  They came together looking for camaraderie and sisterhood in a culturally Jewish setting.  They were looking for a home away from home and a smaller community on Stanford’s large campus.  With assistance from then Traveling Educational Consultant Lauren Reinfeld and fantastic advisors, the women learned the history, heritage, values and traditions of AEPhi and were initiated in February 2008.  Over the past two years, the colony has achieved academic excellence, developed an outstanding sisterhood, actively participated in their Panhellenic and Greek communities, established a solid foundation of chapter operations and lived the values of AEPhi.  AEPhi congratulates the members of Beta Iota Chapter on this achieving this milestone!
