Beta Kappa Chapter Chartered at UC-Irvine

Beta Kappa Chapter chartered at UC Irvine: On Sunday, November 14, 2010, the Beta Kappa Chapter at the University of California, Irvine became Alpha Epsilon Phi’s 105th chartered chapter. The chapter began as a local sorority, Epsilon Phi, which 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. Alpha Epsilon Phi was chosen to affiliate with the local group in spring 2008, and the group was colonized that fall.  The founding members of the AEPhi Colony took the challenge of starting something new and came together looking for camaraderie and sisterhood in a culturally Jewish setting.  With assistance from then Traveling Educational Consultant Shannon Cohen and fantastic advisors, the women learned the history, heritage, values and traditions of AEPhi and were initiated in November 2008. Over the past two years, the colony has achieved academic excellence; developed an outstanding sisterhood; actively participated in their Panhellenic, Greek and Jewish communities; established a solid foundation of chapter operations and lived the values of AEPhi. AEPhi congratulates the members of Beta Kappa Chapter on this achieving this milestone!
