MIT’s First Sorority Awarded for Outstanding Residences

MIT Alpha Phi

November 07, 2018

At the Alpha Phi International Women's Fraternity’s 72nd national Biennial Convention in Tucson, Arizona, MIT’s Zeta Phi chapter won the coveted House Corporation Board of the Year Award for “outstanding facility management,” besting 33 other applicants from Alpha Phi's 170 chapters. The award recognizes the chapter’s alumnae, particularly Anya Kattef ’98, whose invaluable assistance supports members’ efforts to maintain their historic brownstones on Commonwealth Avenue near Kenmore Square.

The chapter’s excellent building refurbishment has allowed the chapter to host numerous community gatherings, such as the FSILG Community Relations Open House (pictured above). Alpha Phi was MIT’s very first sorority in 1982, and since then the Institute's sorority community has grown to seven chapters with more than 600 members.
