Texas Alpha Phi sorority was founded at The University of Texas in 1920. For 95 years the Omega chapter of Alpha Phi has fostered a spirit of love and charity at The University of Texas.
My name is Nellie Kerr and I am the current President of the Omega Chapter of Alpha Phi at The University of Texas at Austin. I am so excited to serve this chapter as President and I am looking forward to all the exciting events we have going on this semester! This semester is filled with a variety of fun date events, philanthropy events, and sisterhood events! There is never a shortage of exciting opportunities for girls to grow closer and create memories that will last a lifetime. Our chapter upholds high ideals of scholarship, leadership, service and most importantly, friendship. The sisterhood of Alpha Phi has truly been a blessing in my life and we pride ourselves on maintaining our genuine nature of the members of our chapter that keeps that bond so strong. Alpha Phi has given me life-long friendships and memories that I will cherish far beyond my college years. If you are ever in the Austin area, please feel free to stop by and visit us at the Alpha Phi house! We would love to meet you! AOE & Hook’Em Horns!

Deep in the Heart of Texas
The commitment of our founders to foster a “spirit of love and charity” has stood the test of time and remains as important to Alpha Phi today as it was in 1872. Practicing generosity and seeking to improve the lives of women are basic tenants of our Fraternity.
The American Heart Association and Alpha Phi have partnered to create the Alpha Phi Foundation. Our foundation works to raise awareness and money for heart disease, the leading cause of death in both men and women.
Alpha Phi has created multiple events that are held throughout the school year in order to support the Alpha Phi Foundation. Our Director of Philanthropy, Anneke Rood, has a very personal relationship with heart disease and the American Heart Association and has done an excellent job of educating our chapter.
Anneke has successfully put on the annual Heart of Texas Barbecue with the Texas Cowboys complete with a petting zoo, delicious food, and a live band. The money raised went to both ours and the Cowboys’ philanthropies and has been a continued success across campus. (To see photos, view gallery)
Our biggest philanthropy event of the year is the Red Dress Gala. Members of Omega are encouraged to invite friends and family to the event which is held in a local banquet hall. A live auction along with donations allow us to make yearly contributions in thousands of dollars to the Alpha Phi Foundation. Anneke has already made headway on this fall’s gala, and we are looking forward to it being the most successful one yet!
Alpha Phi provides many opportunities for women to make a difference in the lives of others by contributing their time and talents. From organizing campus philanthropic events to volunteering their time, our members are making a positive impact in the Austin community!
2005 University Avenue
The Omega chapter of Alpha Phi was chartered at the University of Texas in 1920. This was the first house on the University of Texas campus to be built as a sorority house. Today, the Omega chapter house is three stories tall, and houses 48 women. In 2009, the chapter house underwent a major renovation! The kitchen, big room, and upstairs bathrooms were completely renovated. New furniture, lighting and décor has been added to the common areas. A variety of structural projects have also been completed, including a new roof, new basement plumbing and exterior work such as new paint, new gutters, new siding and a beautiful double door entryway. Last summer, the chapter house received new bedroom furniture for each room and updates to the dining room area! If you have not had a chance to come by the house since the major renovations have been done, we encourage you to stop by.
Please visit our House Corporation Board website for additional details.
