About Alpha

Who We Are



Alpha Lambda Phi Alpha is a diverse group of dedicated, spirited and fun-loving group of women at Occidental College. We commit ourselves to the excellence of scholarship, friendship, and service to our sisters and our community. 
Our members are passionate about giving back. In addition, we are all very involved on campus; you can be sure to see us leading the various clubs and sports of Occidental. As sisters, we support each other through thick and thin. 

The word Alpha represents the Greek word 'arete' which means virtue, womanhood, dignity, character, and excellence of every kind. Alpha stands for loyalty to Occidental and all her interests, for support of college actives, for excellence of scholarship, for a wide friendship among all college women, and for faithful service to Alpha. 



With Planned Parenthood as our philanthropy, we are committed to empowering women in every way we can. Look out for our regular fundraisers and annual Oxy's Got Talent show fundraiser for PP!
