"In January of 2009, six young women in their second year of studies at Carleton University came together with the purpose of creating a new women's organization on campus: Paz Arias, Lauren Crosby, Jessica Doyle, Heather McBride, Lesley Walker, and myself, Laura Kell.
After much thought and deliberation, we, the Founding Mothers of what would eventually become Alpha Pi Phi, had finally come to the conclusion that there was a need for a new society on campus - a place where young women, such as ourselves, could unite with one another, bound together by our shared qualities, virtues, and of course, friendship.
Thus, we began meeting weekly and began establishing a sisterhood, founded upon the principles of Love, Loyalty, and Friendship. Soon after, on February 26th, 2009, Alpha Pi Phi Sorority was officially born."
