Letter from our
Hi everyone!! My name is Taylor Giangrande and I currently serve as the Alpha Phi Chapter President. I am so honored and blessed to be able to represent such an amazing group of women! I am excited to welcome you to the website of Alpha Phi at Louisiana State University and encourage you to take a look around.
I am from Thibodaux, Louisiana which is about an hour South of Baton Rouge. Coming into college, I was looking forward to finding a home away from home, and creating new memories and friendships. The women of Alpha Phi have shaped me into who I am today, and consistently push me to be the best version of myself. Through Alpha Phi, I have grown as a leader, friend, and student. I cannot imagine what my college years would have been like without Alpha Phi, or else I wouldn’t be writing this letter to y’all today. My time in Alpha Phi has allowed me to surpass my expectations for my college experience, the opportunities I have been given as a member of this chapter are beyond anything I would’ve imagined.
Alpha Phi is centered around our core values of loyalty, sisterhood, scholarship, leadership, character development, and service. In this chapter I have found lifelong friends, a support system, and a place where I know I can always be myself. Alpha Phi is not something that lasts four years, but a lifetime as we continue to support and encourage one another in all future endeavors. Currently, many of our members hold prominent leadership roles on campus, ranging anywhere from student government to student ambassadors and even the Panhellenic Executive Board. We are so proud of our members who dedicate themselves to being involved on campus!
Alpha Phi strives to make a difference on the LSU campus through hosting and participating in various Panhellenic service opportunities such as blood drives, food drives, and other philanthropic events. Philanthropy is an integral component of our sisterhood and we are proud to support women with heart disease through our Alpha Phi Foundation. We are recognized as one of the top donating chapters for the Alpha Phi Foundation and hope to continue making a positive impact on our community through our continued leadership and service efforts. Our members wake up every day with a commitment to leading with heart, and I am so proud to represent such a dedicated group of women.
We are so proud of all of Alpha Phi’s accomplishments not only on LSU’s campus but within the Baton Rouge community. I hope you enjoy our website and learn about what our amazing organization stands for!
